An experiment to get more trophy winners to turn up for the club’s annual presentations proved a success at Newton Green Golf Club.
A Sunday morning nine-hole friendly encounter, involving men’s and mixed competition winners during the year, meant an increased turn-out, compared with holding the presentation as part of a winter evening annual meeting.
Retiring men’s captain, Lee Prentice, and ladies’ captain, Sally Cade, handed over the awards after a rain-soaked morning’s play, which was followed by a well-attended hot trolley lunch.
Meanwhile, Newton Green GC’s recent Senior Section results are as follows:
