Pristine West Hill

It was a double first for Edmund Davison at West Hill, the last qualifying event in the Society’s “Order of Merit” competition.

Having just joined the Society, Edmund, a new recruit to the Marketing department and a member at Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club, showed the way home to win The Rothermere Challenge Cup with 36pts, beating runner-up Stephen Stout, recently retired from the Singapore office, by two points.  Edmund was cut 2-shots to 12 handicap for his win and Stephen, one-shot to 18.

Three players were close up behind, all with 33 points with Adam Kemp, also from Marketing, taking 3rd place on countback from Daily Mail sports reporter Chris Cutmore with Pension Fund guru Peter Williams fifth.

The West Hill course was in pristine condition, with the heathland fairways almost perfect and greens deceptively fast and difficult to read.

There was a good turnout as all those in contention for the “Order of Merit” play-off tried to improve their positions to qualify into the top four placings.  The eventual qualifiers were Ian McGowan; Keith Cottington; Clive Heard and David Crump and they will now play at Frilford Heath before the Christmas Scramble where this “Golfer of the Year” trophy will be presented to the winner.

The Match Play Cousins Challenge Bowl Trophy will also be presented at the Scramble with David Crump and Ian McGowan playing at The Grove to win this knock-out competition.

Champagne for his “Nearest the Pin” shot on the 13th green was won by Mike Creaby, who shared the “2’s” kitty with Ian McGowan.  Mike won £15 and Ian £30 as he also had a two on a previous hole, with £9 going to the Society Funds.

There were two players who thought it worth investing their £5 in the fund raising “Back the Winner” competition with Edward Hawkins and Roland Agambar winning £50 each with £30 raised for the funds.
