Club Challenge Cup proves a stern test

Published: 30th June 2014

The Club Challenge Cup must be one of the oldest cups in the Club’s history. First played in 1893 over 27 holes, the initial winner was K M Bannerman, who later died in the First World War.

Adding his name to this elite group of past champions is the inimitable Sean Beare, who carded a very impressive net 68 on Saturday. Sean topped the list of 53 competitors who pitted their skills against a very tough Church Course. Rain earlier in the week ensured that the rough stayed rough, putting a premium on finding the short grass, which Sean was clearly able to do. Second place on count-back was the Vice Captain, David Elliott, with a net score of 71, shared by four others – Julian Darnell, Robbie Moore, Keith Thompson and Steve Buse.    

The weather was fair all day, with a testing northerly breeze in the afternoon. The Church Course is in fantastic condition and is setting up nicely for the upcoming English Women’s Amateur Championship.
