THE THORNTON TROPHY COMPETITION 2018

 

Well it seems that it wouldn't be the Thornton without some calamity or other. This year it was a burst water main on the edge of the Leeds Ring Road which, together with two accidents, made getting to the club a very fraught process for some.

Firstly, I would like to extend our thanks to Low LaithesGolf Club for hosting the event and allowing us the courtesy of the course for the day. Special thanks to Simon Jones for his help in setting up the event and throughout the day; to the Greens Staff for presenting the course in such immaculate condition; to the Professional Adrian Ambler for his help; to the chef Oliver Sharp and his team for keeping everyone fed throughout the long day; and last but certainly not least to Maureen Goddard and her team behind the bar.

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

And thirdly, our thanks to all who took part in the competition 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 a strong wind that made for tough playing conditions. And as the scores overall showed this took its toll.

Eighty four out of our 101 member clubs took part on the day with the remainder informing us of their non-participation, even if in some cases it was at the last minute. This is appreciated as it helps greatly with the planning and coordination. And again there were only 2 no-shows on the day.

And yet again I would be extremely remiss if I failed to mention and thank those members of the Executive who assisted me throughout the day running the event. Thanks to Peter, your President; to Trevor Gurney for acting as starter for the entire day; to Derrick Howell for preparing and issuing the scorecards; to Bob Bishop for assiting with player registration; and to Ken Richardson for. persuading people to part with money for the raffle. Thanks also to the small band of marshalls who helped keep the pace of play good

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

Happy Golfing

Phil Leadbetter MVO

Honorary Secretary
