Beaumont Trophy

August 4, 2017

What a brilliant result!!

The Seniors’ Beaumont team travelled to opponents Gorleston on Tuesday 25th July to play their Beaumont Cup quarter final. They were met by Gorleston’s captain who could not have been more welcoming. A feature that was mentioned by many of our squad was just how hospitable their hosts were throughout the day. As often is the case on this course there were strong winds which made playing conditions particularly tricky.

After all 4 pairs had completed 9 holes of their 4-ball better ball matches St Audry’s found themselves up by the slim margin of 2 holes. They magnificently held onto this lead & on completion of the match they came out victorious, still by 2 holes. This was a tremendous team effort & the team are now into the semi final, the furthest they have ever achieved in this competition.

The semi final, traditionally held on a neutral course, will be played against Brett Vale at Fynn Valley Golf Club on Tuesday 22nd August. Support on the day would be very much appreciated.

The pairs & their scores were as follows:

Frank Wilson & Malcolm English -3
Eddie Barnes & John Chapman +2
Rob Haste & Mike Hammond +4
Aly Andrews (Capt) & David Leech -1
