JANE Brackenbury was crowned West Berks Golf Club's lady champion for the sixth year in succession last weekend.

Playing off a handicap of seven, she went round in 87 on Saturday and 90 on Sunday for an excellent return of 177.

Pat Treacy, playing off 19, scored an aggregate of 200 to beat Renee Wheeler for the runners-up spot by a single shot.

The best nett-score prizes were awarded to Georgie Seaman for the first round and Sian Soanes for the second, while Wheeler recorded the best nett aggregate with 159.

Jason Kendal retained the men's title he won for the first time last year. He trailed Christy Whelehan by a single shot after the first round, but regained the lead and was one shot ahead on the tee at the18th.

They were both through the green with their second shots with Kendal left with a difficult chip of some 40 yards which he executed expertly and rolled his putt just past the hole, while Whelan putted onto the green and his putt which would have forced a play-off lipped out. Kendal held his nerve to hole his putt to take the championship.

Third place on 165 went to Jason's brother Mark, who had previously won the title a remarkable eight times.

Gary Robinson won the nett prize with 154 and Tony Coventry with 156 beat Greg Collins on countback to take second spot.

Tim Palmer won the Wise Trophy for 13 to 18 handicappers by scoring an aggregate of 185, just one point clear of Andrew Greaves, with Pete Dye a further shot back in third. Kevin Holland, with 157, won the nett prize from Ian Lewin on 158 and Dan Taylor 160.

Dan Bowsher secured the Bennett Cup for those with handicaps of 19 and over with a total of 192. Kevin Hopwood was second with 194 and Paul Beake third on 202. Bernie Holden won the Bennett nett prize with 162, Darren Galbraith was second with 165 and Alan Capps third on 170.

A West Berks team comprising Susie Boultwood, Derrick Perrin, Rob Small and Kevin Forder totalled 94 points to win the midweek mixed competition, five ahead of runners-up Simone Diamond, Chris Capel and Mike Sparvell.

Colin Bell scored a remarkable 44 points to win the midweek stableford, four more than Martin Anscombe in second place. Andy Robbings was third on 37.

West Berks seniors recorded a fine 4-2 win at Donnington Grove to win the ‘Cer em dano e’ Trophy, which is played for annually in memory of Elfed Davies who was a founder member at West Berks and past secretary at Donnington Grove.

MOST of Theale GC's competitions are open to lady members and for the second time Susie Fountain came up trumps, this time in the Dial a Trade stroke-play mixed competition.

She was a clear winner with a score of 82 gross 68 nett – the only player to make it under nett 70 on the day.
