FORMER captain Katie Stooke was crowned Ross Golf Club's Lady Champion while Cam Haines took the men's honours.

The 36-hole singles matches was arguable the pick of the club honours which culminated recently.

Last year’s lady captain Stooke took the women's title after a hard fought match against Ruth Pimlow.

Meanwhile in the men's category 19-year-old Haines took on five handicapper Simon Mills.

Haines had only recently gained scratch handicap status and had the experience of being Club Champion in 2017.

Unfortunately for Mills, his opponent got off to a blistering start securing four birdies in his opening five holes.

While Mills captured his own birdie at the sixth hole, he found himself playing catch-up for most of the match and they shook hands after playing their 28th hole to give Cam a 9/8 win and make him a worthy men's champion again.

Rising star Rhian McGinley was the worthy winner of The Ladies Summer Knockout Competition while Jesse Lawrence was runner-up.

McGinley, age 15, who has come through the Tim Hall School of Golf at Ross, has had a very impressive season, with her handicap coming down from 21 to currently 13.

McGinley has won a number of junior and ladies competitions throughout the summer and plays in the county girls squad.

Not to be outdone, Lawrence went on to win The Ladies Bronze Cup in an extremely close match against Nadya Stirling on the 19th hole.

The Ladies Six-Hole Competition was won by Dinah Johnson with Lois Price runner-up.

Johnson also went on to win a further Ladies Knockout Competition against Denise Laird.

The Mary Beavis Cup was played over two rounds concluding on August 27, with the monthly Medal Competition.

The winner on countback was Karen Laughlin with a gross 175 score with Kerry Welding finishing runner-up.

Ross Golf Club's Annual Layton Cup involves six rounds of stableford competitions played throughout the summer with the champion emerging through their best three rounds points total based on net handicap performances.

Richard Tromans and Steve Bartholomew found themselves together at the top of the final results table with 120 points each, meaning a further 18 holes of stableford golf needed to be played to determine the 2019 honours board winner.

The play-off proved to be a low scoring contest and Tromans eventually conceded the match on the 16th green.

That meant Bartholomew can look forward to having his name on the honours board.
