Congratulations to Mike Dewsbury for winning the Club Championship, with Gross scores of 67 in the first round and 70 in the second round. A great achievement under any circumstances. Mike has a "Scratch" handicap and indeed is now off Minus 0.4.
The Club Championship can be traced back as far as 1899 (no, that is not a mistake) when it was an 18-hole Scratch Medal. It became a 36-hole event in 1959. A trophy, The Frank Sessions Cup, was presented in 1978 by Eileen Sessions in memory of her husband Frank. The club made the decision to use this trophy for the Men's Championship.
Congratulations to Alison Parkes on winning Lady Captain's Day!
