Bramley Trophy and future Competitions

Gents,

Congratulations and well done to Blankney Golf Club Bramley Team which consisted of Lee Johnson, Sam Moyses and Craig Toyne.

Lee, Sam & Craig represented the Club in the Final of the Bramley Trophy hosted by Seacroft Golf Club on Sunday 22nd August 2021.  The 3 finalists were Blankney, Spalding & Woodhall Spa Golf Clubs and the format was a 3 way match play which was fiercly contested throughout by all the Teams.  Spalding Golf Club were the favourites on paper, fielding an extremely strong Team with a combined handicap of +12 and unfortunately they transferred their form to the course and lifted the Bramley Trophy running out deserved winners, playing some fantastic golf, well done and congratulations Spalding Golf Club.  The Blankney Team also played some excellent golf and finished gallant runners up beating Woodhall who took 3rd place, well done Gents, you did Blankney Golf Club proud.

It is also fair to say, Blankney Golf Club showed the way these prestigious competitions should be played and the players were supported by their Caddies, Robbie, Nev & Archie and by supporters from Blankney Golf Club who attended to watch proceedings throughout the day. 

This was noticed and appreciated by the organisers of LUGC who mentioned this in their speeches and our Club Captain, Kevin O'Rourke got a special mention for being in attendance throughout the day supporting Blankney Golf Club and the event in general.  Spalding Golf Club also commended him on this point and apologised for their Club Captain not being present at one of the LUGC Major Team events, however, they did state he was playing in a Mixed Match......

Again, great effort Gents, you should be all proud of your achievements.
