As MANY sports continue to make a return towards normality following months of absence, golfers in the region have been looking to pick up some silverware as competitions resume.

Competitions have been on hold for months while clubs were closed in line with government advice relating to Covid-19.

However after being given the green light to return with new regulations in place, golfers have once again been battling for bragging rights and trophies in a variety of competitions.

The course has been busy at Henlle Park Golf Club, with the Anniversary Cup starting earlier in June.

Stuart Thornley and Robby Clark were the men to return with a win as their pairing topped the leaderboard with 45 points, putting them one point ahead of second placed duo Stephen Smith and Lewis Williams.

Tony and Viv Davies finished in third place on 44 points as well, after losing out on second place on countback.

The popular Lomax Shield was also played later in the month, with father and son duo Lee and Jack Byrne topping the podium with 45 points.

Second place went to Jack Harris and Stu Heathcock with 43 points, while third place went to Phil Davies and Simon Edwards.

The Dave Salter Trophy resumed on Wednesday, June 24 on one of the hottest days of the year so far.

Morgan Taylor finished top of the pile after nine holes while Chris Jones and Phil Davies led the challenge to end second and third on the countback.

Competitive golf has also resumed at Llanymynech Golf Club, with members returning to take part in the Wilson Cup last week.

It was another close round of golf, but in the end Adi Jones prevailed finishing first with 67 points.

Following him closely in second place was Chris Williams with 68 points and Kenton Cawley who finished third on countback with 69 points.
