The OBs qualified at Knole Park for the Grafton Morrish Trophy finals, for the second time in three years. These will be held at Hunstanton and Brancaster at the end of September. It is a great weekend and competition for places in the team will be keen. Hopefully we won't meet last year's winners in the 1st Round (like last time)!

The over 50s lost their 1st Round match in the Cyril Grey Cup at Worplesdon to Wellingborough 2-1, but won the 1st Round of the Plate event, beating Epsom 2-1. They then lost a nailbiter of a 2nd Round against Greshams 2-1, with every game finishing on the 18th green. This is the first 1st Round we've lost in six years - we hope to get back to winning ways next year.

We also had a match against the College, the first for many years. In high pollen and humidity in the heat of late June we entertained the boys at the Dyke. In the event, experience allied to course knowledge prevailed and the OBs ran out winners, though several of the games were close and there evidently is some rising talent that we hope to tap in future years. A match to be repeated.

The Autumn Meeting will be held in the last week of October. Any O.B. young or less young of whatever handicap is welcome to attend - please contact Chris Pett on 01273 244200 or 01273 563819 for details if you're not already on his mailing list.
