1. Dyke GC’s Martin Yeates drives off as we held our National Golf Day at Broadstone last month. Nearly 50 members made the journey to Dorset and, with sensational weather to help, the course was presented in superb condition. Everyone in attendance was made to feel welcome by staff and members, several of whom actually headed out onto the course to provide valuable ball-spotting duties.
His 75, off a handicap of six, gave the West Hill secretary the prize and he was presented with the trophy by 2018 national captain Cameron Dawson, along with the host club skipper Dave Shenton.
3. The main prize is the Greenshields Memorial Trophy, which is won by the player with the best gross score. Ian Slater’s excellent 73, recorded from a two handicap, gave him the victory and the North Downs secretary was delighted to take the honours.
