PAUL Smith took the field apart to win Colchester Golf Club's third September Medal Cup with a fantastic nett 62.

The backbone of the 11-handicapper's score was built when he recorded just one bogey and all pars from the sixth hole.

His winning margin was a full three shots ahead of his nearest challenger Clive Mason (11), who shot a creditable 65.

The Intermediate Cup was a closely-contested affair and was won by Ralph Charles (15) on countback from Joe Jackson (15), with both players scoring nett 65s.

Charles parred his last two holes to take the medal.

Colchester GC's Rabbits Cup was won by Rubin Tucker (20) with a nett 73.

Tucker played well to win by a shot margin and retain the trophy he won last year.

Janet Wilson (36) claimed a countback victory in the Ladies 60+ bowl with 35 points.

Wilson's tremendous back nine of 23 points was the difference, with Bee Pertwee (18) and Claire Croger (21) the unlucky players to just miss out.

Colchester GC's Ladies also held a support stableford which was another keenly-contested event.

Wendy Smith (22) won the competition with 37 points with three pars on her front nine setting the tone for her round.

Fiona Rose (27) and Jenny Mitchell (15) were both pipped into second position with scores of 36 points.

The Turner Cup Family Foursomes Trophy was donated by the Turner family in 1974.

It helped them see off husband and wife pairing Mark and Hayley Joel on countback, with Dave and Sam Latta third with a creditable 34 points.

Mother and son pairing Sarah and Duncan Turner contested the Jubilee Cup Mixed Knockout Final.

They won a closely fought contest against husband and wife pair Stephen and Linda Freeman.

Colchester GC's Seniors scratch competition was held on a chilly and blustery morning.

After a gap of three years, Bill Eke (four) returned to the winners' enclosure with an excellent three over par 73.

He recorded two birdies on his back nine, in his strong finish, leaving Nigel Hilliard (six) and Alan MacNaught (five) trailing with scores of 77.

The John Thorogood Trophy was won by Richard Withnall (four) with a creditable score of 72.
