THE Central Sevens Golf League was finalised on Saturday with the season going down to the last day.

With Cotswolds, Tadmarton Heath and West Berks having one match to play, any one of the three teams could have been crowned champions.

West Berks made it four wins on the trot with a fine away victory at Drayton A, but with both their rivals also winning their last match they finished third with Cotswolds taking first place from Tadmarton Heath.

This was a notable achievement for West Berks in their first year back in Division One following promotion last year.

The club's Colin Price won the Division One Order of Merit, winning eight of his 10 matches to take the divisional prize by a clear six points.

The seniors also finished their programme on a high, winning 5-3 at Caversham Heath.

During the season, 21 fixtures yielded 12 wins, four defeats and five halves during which they were unbeaten at home.

Two teams of 14 pairs played a better-ball, matchplay competition in the Captain’s and Chairman’s Challenge with two points awarded for a win and one for a half.

In the event, captain Nigel Day’s team beat Kevin Hopwood’s team 16-12. More than £550 was raised for the captains’ charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

The West Berks’ mixed team played at Oxford City and lost 3-2.

Dan Bowsher, Gary Waterston and Chris Prior won the Autumn team competition with 83 points.

John Carroll, Johnny Corbridge and Mark Ramos were second on 79 and Jason Kendal, Mark Ridgill and Rob Camden third on 77.

l ELEVEN blind and partially sighted members of the Berkshire Vision charity were among a field of 35 golfers who played in a tournament at Sand Martins GC in Wokingham.

Competing in a nine-hole Texas scramble, teams consisted of two sighted players and one or two visually impaired golfers, plus a sighted caddy.

The winners were Berkshire Vision’s Ros Weir and Sand Martin pair Joan Franklin and Di Raeside.

Former Reading footballer and manager Mick Gooding, who was in last season’s winning team, also played, as did Stan Bembenek, the one-legged international golfer.

Reading player Chris Gunter donated a pair of boots for the raffle, while auction items included a beautiful sketch of the Sand Martins clubhouse.

The raffle and auction raised nearly £300, which will go into the fund set up to raise £61,000 for a fully-adapted children’s minibus.

Sand Martins member Alan Leason, who helped to organise the event, said the tournament demonstrates the club’s keenness to support the local community.
