We held our annual golf day at Mentmore Golf & Country Club today with a good turnout of Athletic members, the day being named after the first winner of this trophy and first team captain who unfortunately died some 18 years ago in a car accident, The 9 hole Texas Scramble played in the morning was won by the four ball of Keith Butler, Alan Gray, Rob Hollingdale and Danny Robbins. The main competition, over 18 holes, played on the Rosebery course was close affair with Neil Foskett being edged into second place with 38 points by Rob Hollingdale winning with a score of 39 points. He took the Green Jacket, trophy, bottle of champagne, golf balls and other golf items as his prize.

Two nearest pins went to Graham Hall and Dave Livingstone with Mark Boniface hitting the longest drive. There was a great competiton to win the wooden spoon with Gary Barnett scoring just one less than 3 other nameless players.

A very hot day played on the Mentmore courses that were in great condition and followed by an excellent lunch and evening meal.
