Carter-Brown holds nerve to secure first win
Our reigning Inter-Club Champions, The Lambourne Golf Club, hosted our latest Network Day on 9 June following their victory in the competition last season. With its beautiful clubhouse and picturesque course presented in great condition, our members were treated to a great day’s golf and an exciting climax. Stuart Nice, making the long trip from Yorkshire, took home the bottle of Hayman’s Gin as he scooped Nearest the Pin in Two, whilst Andrew Lyth, who had travelled even further from Texas in the US, claimed Nearest the Pin with his superb shot to within two feet despite Glyn Andrews nearly holing his tee shot in the final group out!. Andrew won a bottle of Merser Rum.
The Individual Stableford was an exciting affair with only two points separating the top four players. Unlucky to miss out on the prizes was fourth placed Andrew Lyth with 39 points.
In third place, also with 39 points but beating Andrew on a countback was Dean Tebbutt, who won a Skechers shoes voucher.
The battle for top spot went right to the wire with Scott Murray looking good on 41 points and Peter Carter-Brown looking like he might just fall short after some majestic golf on the first 16 holes. But Peter showed real steel to hole a crucial putt on 18 and win the day on a count back from Scott. Well done Peter! Scott won a Bushnell Phantom GPS whilst Peter won a £250 voucher from Stewart Golf.
Thanks to all our sponsors once more for providing the prizes and for Simon Hudson from provulo who again supported the day as our Ambassador Sponsor. Simon is hosting his next Ambassadors day in the coming weeks where all our recent ambassadors will come together to play at Burhill in Surrey. We hope to see you and your friends at more Network Days this season. Next up is the Isle of Purbeck next Friday, one we are really looking forward to visit.
