The Juniors team also managed 2nd place with 22 pts at Tiverton with the home side scoring 37 and Minehead 13.The B team competed at home and ran in convincing winners with 51 pts to Tiverton 27 and Minehead 26. Overall scoring: Enmore 100, Tiverton 88, Minehead 78.
The Centenary Trophy, which is a competition for all 2012 monthly medal and stableford competitions for both men and women, was won by Ben Filler 43pts. Keith Miller took the runner up spot with 40 on a count back over Rob Hake, who also scored 40pts.
Enmore Park Seniors embarked on a busy schedule during the second half of August, firstly hosting Oake Manor and prevailing without losing a single match. Captained by Keith Norcutt, in the absence of Tony Pomeroy, six pairings had a straight win whilst two groups secured a half point each thus giving an impressive victory by 7 matches to 1.
Next up was the annual away day, hosted by 2011 captain Bob Burton, held at the Stover Club in Devon. Graham Pain won the King cup with a stableford score of 40 points. Clevedon were the next visitors to Enmore on a day when the course had to be restricted due to weather conditions. Enmore prevailed, just, by 4 points to 3.
Norcutt then took the team to Lyme Regis where the traditional fish and chip supper compensated for a 2 to 5 defeat. On the following day Enmore seniors sent 21 players to the Honiton club to compete in the 'Henry Young Salver'.
Playing in groups of three Rod Barber, David Bernard and David Gwynne-Jones brought the salver back to Enmore with a winning score of 44 points.
The Seniors started their September programme by hosting local Somerset rivals Weston-Super-Mare.
Keith Norcutt continued to lead the team in the absence of Captain Tony Pomeroy through family bereavement. On an Indian Summers day, with the course in fine condition, the home team produced one of their season's best displays with a resounding victory by 7 matches to 1.
The winning pairings were Graham Marson and Gerry Oates (5 & 3); John Coleman and Jim Potticary (4 & 3); Keith Norcutt and John Newell (4 & 3); Roger Anniss and Iain Stewart (4 & 3); John Rigler and Mike Cavill (2 & 1); Peter Attwood and Max Jameson (4 & 3); John Patterson and David Auld (5 & 3). This week sees Enmore back on the road with tough fixtures against Burnham and Berrow and then Minehead.
