Saffron Walden Golf Club’s Millennium Week proved the highlight of the year for the senior section.

Three separate stableford competitions were held, with 70 senior golfers batting to claim the most points for the Millennium Trophy.

Clive Walker won the Johnny Johnson Decanter on Monday with 38 points, pipping Bill Sandford and Chris Martin on countback.

And Mike Spicer took the Mashie Trophy two days later with 37 points, one ahead of Sandford and Colin Brown, after scoring eight on the last three holes.

Spicer started the Peter Hoare Memorial with a par on Friday, but blobbed the next three holes and finished third with 35 points, three behind winner Roger Foster, who called his success the result of “steady, boring golf”.

And that saw Spicer finish with 102 points overall to claim the Millennium Trophy from outgoing captain Peter Still, who started the week as the defending champion.
