Echo report : 7th June, LESLIE WOOD 3rd Round
Round 3 of the Leslie Wood Championship on Sunday saw Belfairs play host to The Burstead. The visitors got off to a flying start in the morning foursomes and overwhelmed the home side to go into lunch 5-0 ahead. The afternoon singles were a much closer affair as Belfairs made valiant efforts to reduce the deficit and with fine individual performances from winners Kevin Gough, Nigel Warder, Andrew Nash and halves from Steve Mann and Rod Hall, an unlikely comeback seemed possible at one stage. In the end, however, a very strong Burstead team prevailed to take the tie 11-4 and now face The Essex in the quarter-final.

Echo Report : 21st May NORMAN PLUM TROPHY & BUST BOWL
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).
