GOLF: Burnham and Berrow Ladies seal early promotion

First published in Sport

THE Burnham & Berrow Golf Club Ladies Team have sealed promotion with four matches still remaining in this years’ Bristol and District Alliance, following a 6–1 victory at home last week to Saltford Golf Club.

The Burnham & Berrow Course has proved to be a fortress for the ladies scratch team, with the seven strong team conceding just five points in their six matches at home this season.

With four away matches still to be played they have already secured promotion into division two next year.

Their next match is away at Wells Golf Club on the August 6.

A nett 69 was good enough for five handicapper Andy Harriot to scoop victory in Division One of the July Medal.

A birdie at the first hole and just four dropped shots in the next 17 holes was good enough to pip Troy Crandon by one shot, whose double bogey at the last hole proved expensive in an otherwise solid round of 75 for a net 70. John White also scored a net 70 but was pushed into third place following a countback.

Tony Manlow romped to a nine shot victory in division two with a net 64 ahead of Graham Lewis and Darren Atkins who both scored 73’s for second and third places respectively.

Three handicapper Frank Ellis won the yellow tee stableford last Monday with 38 points which included an amazing feat of three two’s on the front nine.

Not only did he make two’s at both of the par threes, he also holed his second shot at the par four third hole for an eagle.
