It was a nice clear sunny day at Highcliffe Castle as we gathered for this year’s Adult / Junior Greensome Championship. We had a good entry this year with 78 players taking part and it was nice to see Sherborne back into the fold. Ferndown were also represented both on the male and female front as this competition is open to all. It was Ferndown who took the early lead in both the individual and team competitions with Richard white and son Jordan being early leaders on 43 points they were then over taken by Di Groombridge and Charlotte Paull on 44 points they then lost out on Count back to Steve and Thomas Kollberg also with 44 but better was to come with Ferndown pair Adrian Cowan and youngster Sam Lovelady having 45 but they were to lose out on count back to Ben and Darren Graham from Weymouth making sure the Bunny Cotton Trophy was once more going to reside at the club. More importantly they had been teamed up with martin and George Hawkins on 42 points and Rob and Billy Hathway on 41 points giving them a team total of 87 just pipping Sherborne’ s Paul and James Prendergast (43) Adrian and Ben Dew (43) and Carl and Adrian Broomfield (42) team total 86.
We thank Highcliffe Castle for hosting this event as part of their Centenary Celebration the course was excellent as was the catering afterwards which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Congratulations to all the players for taking part this year and making the event such a success, I look forward to seeing more in next year’s event at Came Down as part of their Centenary Celebrations on Wednesday 06 August 2013.
