A beautiful sunny, but windy day, greeted the 14 players for the Annual Tournament, at the Low Laithes Golf Club. The Course was once again in good condition and it proved a true test of Golf with the greens proving tricky for all.
After a drink or two in the 19th hole and a two course meal ,where we were joined our Provincial Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Jim Steggles and the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, Worshipful Brother Dr. Rod Taylor, the Trophies were awarded and, presented the R. W. Bro. Jim, as follows;
Carl Whitehead Trophy for overall winner, W. Bro. Alan Morson, Dartmouth, 35pts.
Frank Whitworth Rose bowl for Past Masters, W. Bro. David Thwaite, Eland, 35 pts.
Rayburn Trophy, best gross score, W. Bro. Graham Bailey, Danum, 75 shots
Provincial Grand Masters Trophy for Vets. W. Bro. Neil Davies, Bronte, 32pts.
Jack Senior Cup, Best Team, St. Chad, with a total 82pts.
W. Bro. Barrie Fothergill.
W. Bro. Alex Steele.
W. Bro. Howard Bott.
David Fisher Trophy, Longest drive, W.Bro. Brian Short, Cleeves.
John Fox Trophy for nearest the pin, W.Bro. Alan Morson, Dartmouth.
The result for the Carl Whitehead Trophy was very close with W. Bro. Alan Morson and W. Bro. David Thwaite returning the same score, and could only be separated on the last two holes.
A most enjoyable day was had all and thanks must go to W. Bro. Graham Bailey for the organisation, with the assistance of W. Bro. Alex Steele who is member of the Club, and to the Low Laithes Golf club for the condition of the course and the hospitality received.
