Long Sutton Golf Club
On a gloriously sunny day with very little wind and almost perfect golfing conditions the Trounson Trophy was held on Somerset Golf Union’s President Tommy Tulk’s home course of Long Sutton.
The Trounson Trophy is an Inter Club County handicap Bowmaker competition, medal format with 4 players making up a team with the best 3 scores to count off a maximum handicap of 18. One player from each team in a match so every opportunity to go head to head against players from 3 other clubs.
21 teams from across the county competed on a challenging course perfectly prepared for the occasion by the green’s staff.
In an attempt to win and deliver the trophy to President Tommy Tulk on his home course Long Sutton fielded 4 teams; they duly obliged coming 1st, 2nd and 4th with Worlebury A in 3rd place.
The winning team Long Sutton A were represented by Paul Wills, Jon Elliot, Gary French and Ian Brown and they returned 3 best cards totalling 211 which was 2 under par – a terrific score. 2nd place Long Sutton C winning the Leonard Fisher Trophy was represented by Steve Stopforth, Wes Allen, Luke Appleton and Allan Pilkington.
Steve Stopforth also won the Presidents Trophy for the best nett score of 3 under par.
