THE THORNTON TROPHY COMPETITION 2017

Firstly, I would like to extend our thanks to Wath Golf Club for hosting the event and allowing us the courtesy of the course for the day; to the Greens Staff for presenting the course in such immaculate condition; and last but certainly not least to Dawn and her team for keeping everyone fed and watered throughout the long day.

Secondly, on behalf of the YRGA I would like to thank all those clubs who so generously offered reciprocal courtesies to Wath Golf Club members that day.

And thirdly, our thanks to all of you who played that day for without you there would be no competition. And it certainly wasn’t the easiest day at the office. On top of a testing course the competition was played in blazing sunshine on what was one of the hottest days of the year. As the scores overall showed the heat took its toll as rounds progressed and there were certainly many weary people returning to the clubhouse.

Eighty out of our now 101 member clubs took part on the day with all but 6 of the remainder informing us of their non-participation, which is appreciated as it helps greatly with the planning and coordination. And I think this must be a record but there were only 2 no-shows on the day.

I would be extremely remiss if I failed to mention and thanks those members of the Executive who assisted me throughout the day running the event. Thanks to Albert, your President, and to Roy Gillott for “rounding up” players to meet start times; to Trevor Gurney for acting as starter for the entire day; to Derrick Howell for preparing and issuing the scorecards; and to Bob Bishop for persuading people to part with money for the raffle and coordinate food requirements.

Finally, thanks to everyone for your generous support of the raffle and congratulations to all the winners.

Happy Golfing

Phil Leadbetter MVO

Honorary Secretary
