Bill Holmes Trophy – Sunday 17th July

It was a really sunny day on Sunday as the crowds gathered for the BilIMG_0878l Holmes Trophy.

Unfortunately one fell at the pre-match hurdle on Friday and a replacement couldn’t be found, so Brian C and Don played with just 8 woods against their opponents.

Each team played 3 rounds of 6 ends against different opposition punctuated by excellent lunchtime refreshments by Brenda S ably assisted by Beryl B, for which we all thank you.

Five teams won 2 games and lost 1 – Sheila, George, Gym, Ken and Dawn but the winner was chosen on the most number of shots, which went to Gym, Brian & Bernard and that’s even with Brian winning another Wrong Bias Certificate!


Thanks to Brian for organising the day while his competition partner-in-crime was busy representing Middlesex with Ann H & Cathy T at the Walker Cup Regional Finals.  They beat Hampshire but lost to Kent.
