Belfairs Golf Club
Belfairs contested the first round of the Norman Plum Trophy against Braintree on Saturday and an in a nail biting finale, it was countback that determined the eventual winner. With both the home and away teams finishing in a dead heat with the number of matches won and then further tied with the total number of holes won, the deadlock was finally broken as Braintree’s first pairings beat their Belfairs opposites. A disappointing result for Belfairs, but an exciting finish to a match played in the best possible spirit.
The ladies played for the Bust Bowl in very wet conditions but Sue Meddle battled through to take the trophy with 28 points from runner-up Hazel Webber (24) and third placed Joan Howroyd (24).
