The Captain held his annual Charity BBQ tournament on Wednesday.
A full turnout competed in a four man team competition two playing medal and two playing Stableford with the winner being decided by the difference between the two.
In an exciting finish, two teams tied with 15 points, with the quartet led by Ted Bryden being declared the winner on the back 9.
Result: 1 Ted Bryden, Norman Markby, Alan Davis & Barry Singleton (59-44=15); 2 Ian Fielder, Alan Teasedale, Nobby Hodder & Nick George (63-48=15).
Captain Alan Davis thanked the club for all their support and announced that he had raised a further £130 for his charity, Prostate Cancer UK.
The Seniors match team travelled to Wiltshire on Thursday to be entertained by Rushmore, in search of their first success against a powerful team.
The captain led by example in game 1 as he and his partner overcame the Rushmore captain by one hole in a tight match.
However, this advantage rapidly disappeared as the following five games all went in favour of the home side, resulting in a 5-1 defeat for Windwhistle.
Results: Alan Davis & Roger Stone won by 1 hole; Barrie Heath & Paul England lost by 5 & 4; Alan Chance & Mike Dawson lost by 6 & 5; Mike Light & Barry Singleton lost by 5 & 4; Keith Potter & Nobby Hodder lost by 1 hole; Stuart Pope & Alan Dowley lost by 6 & 4.
The Seniors finished their week on Friday with a ‘waltz’ competition.

Result: 1 Ted Bryden, Bob White & Brian Anderson 72pts; 2 John Wallis, Nobby Hodder & John Lyford 72pts.
