MIXED weather has meant mixed results at the start of the Ashbourne GC season.

Conditions were extremely testing when the March Medal was held.

The first division was won by Nathan Lee, who is preparing to play in the USA, with a net 72, resulting in a standard scratch adjustment of two shots on the day.

That competition contrasted with the Inaugural Cup in April, where conditions were more benign and four players scored 40 points.

Another Ashbourne resident, Arnie Hackett, won with an incredible 24 on the back nine.

The unlucky runners-up were the in-form Martin Murphy, with 20 points on each half, and past president John Griffiths, from Clifton, who had seven pars and a birdie in his last 11 holes for 22 points on the back.

Other highlights were a net 64 for Mel Godfrey, who had an eagle two on the par four fifth, and Steve Walwyn in the 4BBB Ian Wakelin Trophy.

There was an even more impressive 45 points from local councillor Simon Spencer and Steve Allen, a past steward of the club, in the Easter 4BBB.
