SETTLE and Giggleswick Golf Club have benefitted as much as any club from the return of the sport, not just with the increase in memberships, but in the quality of their Sunday competitions.

Ben Terry was the man to beat as he collected a double, the Riseley Trophy and the Paul Dutton Memorial Cup.

Terry, who has now shifted his handicap down to 12, produced an outstanding performance in the former, coming home with a net 73.

Newcomer Simon Rice-Birchall was his nearest challenger, scoring net 74 in extremely tough playing conditions.

In the Cup, Terry set the early pace with an incredible five pointer for his eagle on the difficult par four, sixth hole.

He held his game together to produce 37 Stableford points which ultimately proved too good for the remaining competitors.

Young Oliver Kilburn finished with an excellent 34 points and his playing partner Duncan Brown took third scoring 33.

The club are greatly encouraged by the number of new members, particularly in the younger age group.
