|Region 20 Golf Day
On June 14th Bourne End & Flackwell Heath Club hosted the Region 20 Golf Day at Temple Golf Club, Hurley.
We were particularly pleased to welcome National President Vaughan Harris who drove up from Sussex to be with us and who later presented the prizes. Region 20 National Councillor Frank Venables joined us for dinner.
Eleven teams from five clubs took part and the Regional Championship was won by Chris Allen and John Kilpatrick of Abingdon A with Trevor Hills and John Richardson of Oxford B runners-up.
The Mike Pritchett Trophy for the individual winner was won by John Kilpatrick with 35 Stableford points on a course where the slopes and undulations on the greens made putting particularly tricky. John Richardson was runner-up and Mike Lewis of Oxford came third. Nearest the pin was David Tonks of Abingdon and Jonathon Hunt, also of Abingdon, had the longest drive.
As winners of the Regional Championship Abingdon will host the event next year and I would urge other clubs who have not previously entered a team to do so as, apart from the golf and the dinner, the fellowship is excellent.
