Club Championship - Winner

Congratulations to Matt Brookbanks, who won the Club Championship with two 5 over par rounds of 73. Matt's 36 hole total of 146 gave him a comfortable nine shot victory over nearest challengers Peter Mason and Nick Sharp (both 155). Matt's first round score was particularly impressive as he had a sextuple bogey 9 on the 5th hole. He followed this with three straight birdies to quickly get him back on track!

The Silver Jubilee, awarded to the player with the best 36 hole net score, was won by Greg van Vuuren. Greg's net 36 hole total of 133 including a superb net 59 in the second round - an impressive score any week but particularly so on Club Championship day. Tommy Tighe came second, also scoring a net 133 but losing out on countback. Jeff Sands finished third.

There was some consolation for Tommy Tighe, as he emerged triumphant in the Gordon Coombs Trophy, awarded to the 10+ handicapper with the best 36 hole gross score. Tommy's 36 hole total of 161 earned him a two shot victory over Gordon Hay (163), with Fazil Rafice in third place (165). It's Tommy's fourth victory in the Gordon Coombs, and his first since 2004.

Well done to all of our winners, and to all 40 entrants who played 36 holes and helped to make it a great day. A special mention for Don David, our oldest entrant, who once again played both rounds and returned a score.
