Darke Peak Golf Club hosted its Ramsey Brothers’ sponsored open day on Sunday August 20.

After many complaints about the horrible wintry weather conditions, 34 men and six women braved the wet, windy and cold conditions on the course.

Surprisingly only two ‘did not finishes’ resulted, coming from golfers Paul Peters and Nathan Haines-Darby.

Marc Chapman, who had travelled from the Cummins Golf Club for the competition, was expected to take out the open, which he did with an impressive gross score of 73.

However, the competition’s division one runner-up Greg Cook thought he may have been in with a chance before all the cards came in, with an impressive score of 75.

Tim Weddell took out the net winner with a net score of 67 and the runner-up was Jeremy Wagner with a net score of 71.

It was no surprise to anyone present at the competition that Champman and Cook also took out the nearest to the pin and long drive respectively for the day’s division one competition.

Division two competition saw Peter Crosby not only take out the nearest to the pin but also the gross winner title with a score of 86 for the day’s competition.

However, division two runner-up Michael Roberts was hot on his heels with a score of 87.

The net  winner and longest drive was awarded to Ashley Beinke who finished with a score of 66 and the net runner-up went to Kevin Nicholls who had a score of 70.

The men’s NAGA was awarded to Anthony Hanson.

In the women’s competition, Brenda Heath was named the gross winner with a score of 97 off the  stick.

Kathy Roberts was closely behind her with a score of 98 to take the gross runner-up.

Angie Turner was the net winner for the day with a score of 78.

The net runner-up, Pam Beinke, also took out the longest drive for the day’s ladies competition.

Sue Edwards won the nearest to the pin for the ladies’ competition.

Edwards was also awarded, for the fourth year running, the ladies’ NAGA award.
