THE format for this year’s King’s Folly at Osborne was adjusted for players, with the best 14 holes of 18 counting towards the main prizes.

In addition, sponsors Tim King and Jane Webster-King made it a fun event with competitors required to putt on the difficult sloping third green with a driver, and drive from the tee on the tenth with an old fashioned wooden driver. Winning the overall titles were Darren Gleeson, with 37 points, and Vanessa Ford, with 34.

A host of other prizes were up for grabs, with nine-hole prizes going to Tony Lake and Keith Williams for the men, and Joan Dalrymple and Norma Poingdestre for the ladies.

Nearest-the-pin prizes went to Mark Roberts and Lesley Catchpole, and longest-drive prizes to Andy Taylor and Margaret Butler. The Folly prize went to Matt Heelan and Ann Barry.
