The first Wednesday competition every month is the County Prize competition and this is played as a par format, writes Andrea Milton.
This is basically match play against the course; you either win, lose, or par each hole. If you parred every hole, your score would be all square, plus points are better than par and minus points worse.
The course had softened a little due to the weekend rain and was playing well. Despite a biting easterly wind, overall the weather was pleasant and even sunny at times.
Winning with a fantastic birdie on the 10th and a score of plus five, was Mandy Furniss. This got her a handicap reduction to 28.
Second was ladies captain Maria Clapp, with four nice pars on her card and a score of minus one.

Third place went to Penny Ashby with a couple of pars and a terrific two on the 15th, giving her a score of minus two and seeing her scoop the twos prize.
The appearance of several groups of Marines yomping along the edge of the course and a huge eagle circling elegantly above our heads, merely added to our entertainment during a great day’s golf.
