The second annual running of the Family Trophy took place over the Valley course with 18 family pairs having some lively debates about which drives to take under the Greensomes format.
Whilst the weather was kind at the outset the forecast rain did materialise for once making conditions a little more difficult. That said, there was still some very impressive scoring.
The podium places were taken by:
3rd: Dave and Jo Ashmore with 42 points on count back
2nd: Will Bradfield and Paul Dodman with 42 points on count back
Winners: Simon Leigh and Josh Pinckney with 44 points who take the trophy!
A big thank you must go to the Hotel and all the competitors for their support of this event.
So if missed out this year make a note in your diary for next year’s event – should be in September. I know there are plenty more family teams out there!
