Gurney Manor Golf Society’s awards are handed out

In the last meeting of the season, the Gurney Manor Golf Society met at Weston Park when Colin Wigg won the Captain's Cup and Phillip Miller won the Jackson Jug, awarded to the player who scored the most stableford points in the year.

Miller racked up 43 points on a hot sunny day in July at Swaffham to win the trophy.

Norman Owen won the Denny Ball for the Order of Merit, Andy Shingfield won the Aggregate Shield for the best four rounds total stableford points, David Luckhurst won the best gross score with 82 on the day and John Fitzgerald the Twos Cup for the most twos in the season.

During the season a system of fines for minor misdemeanours is operated with all the money going to local charities – this year �100 was raised .

It has been a season to remember with several records broken, a hole in one at Southwold by John Fitzgerald, father and son both winning – Chris Miller at Eaton winning the Spring Cup and dad Phillip Miller winning the Summer Cup at Swaffham. Peter Seth recording the lowest gross with 71 winning the Autumn Cup at Southwold
