Saffron Walden Golf Club’s mixed open proved a huge success with 30 pairs from 20 different clubs battling it out for honours.

Mark and Judith Heffer, from the Manor of Groves club near Sawbridgeworth, won by two points on their third appearance at the event.

After a solid front nine of 18 points, they saw Mark birdie the par five 10th and Judith par the 11th to add seven more points to their total.

And they maintained that form to the finish to end up with an impressive 41.

Chelmsford’s Robert and Sue Boom were runners-up with 39, while Stanley and Patricia Nixon from Ely took third place on countback ahead of Andy and Michele Howarth (Benton Hall) after both pairs finished with 38 points.
