It was another fantastic late summer day on Sunday for our final mixed/any combination open comp of the year.  A field of 112 players were competing in sunny, sometimes blustery conditions on a well prepared and presented course.  Many of the players had travelled some distance to be here having read great reviews about the course or having previously experienced the course this summer.

As always, scoring at Cavendish can be tricky and many of the visitors struggled to get the ball in the right place to score well.  But not everybody was finding it hard going and for those who like quick greens, there was a score to be made.  Unusually for a course as tricky as Cavendish, where local knowledge is thought to be so important, all 7 prizes went to visitors.  Congratulations to all of you.  Your winnings will be on account in our Pro shop and can be spent next time you visit or if you go to and select an item and email us at we’ll happily order it for you.

Thank you to everybody who played and made it a most enjoyable day.
