See what's happening at SGC
On Sunday 29th September, Southwell GC defeated Oakmere Park GC 3.5 – 2.5 at Norwood Park to retain the John Harrison Summer League trophy. We shared the trophy last year with Mapperley GC when the playoff final was abandoned owing to atrocious weather conditions.
This year, the weather was not quite as bad but still very wet which made for difficult conditions. Our 6 pairings were Richard Nevin & Tim Newham, Brian Watson & Richard Drinkwater, Paul Todd & Sam Wright, Chris Wright & Keith Hartley, Dave Britten & Brian Rice and Iain McFadyen & Sean Day. Oakmere Park picked a very strong team with a number of single figure golfers taking part. However, our team was even stronger and came through as Champions.
Well done to the team on the day and to the other squad members who represented the club in earlier matches. It was a fantastic team effort and everyone was delighted to have won the event for Richard Nevin who has led the team superbly throughout the season and was a very proud Captain on Sunday evening.
