Weather conditions were ideal for the Club Championships on Sunday September 1 and some excellent golf was played with some excellent scoring. Owen Mills retained the Neville Bishop Trophy with rounds of 73 and 76, four better than his winning score last year and the best total in the Championship since Dan Traher's 146 in 2014. Jason Huggins pipped Josh Chamberlain for second place after both returned totals of 151. It was the same 1-2-3 as last year. Gareth Mills moved up to fourth overall with the best round of the afternoon, a 73.
Paul Smith was the Handicap Cup winner with 72-69-141 playing off 20 and he had his handicap cut to 18. He beat Matt Wabe on countback with Club Captain Mike Horley third on handicap with 142, including the best nett score of the morning when he had 74-7-67. Others to beat their handicap on the day were Zac Grayling and Paul Pearce with 70s in the morning when Ray Hamilton had a 71 and Dean Scott with 71 in the afternoon. Brian Youngs, Michael Gooch, Ross Sanford, Robert Herkes, Robert Setchell and Kevin Cooke all had one round of nett 72. There was a field of 63. Congratulations and/or commiserations to all who took part.
