Category I & II Championship

Rushmore GC 29 August 2017

The Category I & II Championships were played at Rushmore GC on a fine sunny day, there was however a stiff breeze which would prove a good test for the players on a course looking in great condition and presented very well to the players.  

The turnout was fair for the Category I and apart from the home players most found the going tough with putting seeming to be the toughest part of the game.  The home players found the greens easier to handle as the scores proved with Joe Davis Rushmore taking the Category I Championship with a fine net 72  from Yeovil's James Malcolm on 74 and Weymouth's Bradley Davis was a further twos shots behind. 

Congratulations go to:Joe Davis Category I Champion
