An impressive nett total of 144 was enough for Deb Lowe to take the handicap championship by six shots from Sandra Churchill.
The seniors section have now played both of their county knockouts, the Parks and Beaumont, both fielding strong teams with hopes of progressing deep into their competitions.
Twice winners of the Parks trophy in recent years Rookery Park were handed a tough home draw to Woodbridge, a team they have met in previous years in a semi-final and a final. After four groups playing 18 hole matches the tie ended all square and a pair from each side headed out to play a sudden death play-off.
Shane Buckingham and David Porter headed down the first hole against the two Woodbridge players, a par from Woodbridge following drama on the first green enough to see the away side progress to the semi-final.
The Beaumont team faced Hintlesham Hall at home with a strong showing of 14 up on the day seeing them through to the second round. They received another home draw, this time against West Suffolk.
The Thursday League continued this week without Gorleston. Following their withdrawal from the league due to complications over being unable to raise teams on Thursdays there was no game for the Rookery A Team. Rookery B travelled to Caldecott and came away with a creditable draw. Caister tigers now sit top of the league, half a point ahead of Rookery A.
