Sunday 2nd September Ingleborough Trophy
The club hosted the Ingleborough Trophy in which teams from Kirkby Lonsdale, Casterton, Bentham and Settle competed for the trophy. Settle took full advantage of home conditions, winning comfortably from Kirby Lonsdale who took the runners up spot 11 points behind the leaders.
A number of the internal competitions have come to a conclusion; the men's doubles was won by Mike Elstub and Patrick Daley who overcame the much fancied pairing of Steve Robinson and Chris Ward.
Ward made up for this disappointment by defeating Chris Sharp in the final of the club singles.
The Centenary cup was won by Peter Wroe whose 35 points gave him a comfortable victory over his closest rival, Steve Robinson.

Sunday 7th October 3 Clubs & Putter
With the Summer programme coming to a close Settle men held their annual 3 clubs and a putter competition, after which most members question why they have been carrying up to 14 clubs in their bag throughout the season. John Read continued his impressive recent form, having won the Summer medal final last week.
He set the early pace this weekend with a highly creditable 34 stableford points. This proved too good for the other competitors with only Colin Green and Peter Johnson making a realistic challenge .However they both finished well short of Read's score with just 30 points each.
Sunday 21st October Birkbeck Cup Medal
The first competition of the Winter League at Settle also incorporated the Birkbeck Cup. This combination resulted in some keen competition between the consistent John Read( playing off 17) and newcomer Steve O'Shea. Read registered an outstanding gross 40 on the front nine, which included 4 pars. He was unable to maintain this form over the back nine, although his 45 gross still resulted in him finishing with a 1 under par 69.
O'Shea ( playing off 14) had a steadier front nine, his 3 pars helping him to a gross 42. However, he produced an amazing back nine, which included 5 pars, and a birdie on the par 5 18th. This gave him a final 4 below par nett 66. O'Shea is clearly coming to terms with the difficult conditions encountered on the Settle course. None of the remaining players got anywhere near his outstanding score, although club captain Steve Robinson's 2 on the difficult Huntsworth hole will provide a talking point for some time at the club. Few players can have ever holed out with a 4 iron from 190 yards!!
