Berkhamsted Golf Club, 10th April 2017. The Last Chance Saloon at Berkhamsted was played on a course in great condition for the time of year, having staged The Berkhamsted Trophy the day before. The weather too played its part, lovely sunshine but with a chilly wind for most of the morning. Play was brisk and scoring excellent. Thanks to Steve Derbyshire, Abi, Liz and the rest of the extremely impressive team for a wonderful day at a magnificent venue. The clubhouse was even smarter than usual, some subtle enhancements having been carried out recently. Great course, food and the atmosphere in the clubhouse was wonderful. I think you could even say that we all experienced Berkhamsted Golf Club.... Naturally.
Alan Feltham (12), who has followed the tour this year whilst ‘resting’, made the most of the opportunity and the conditions to score a magnificent 38pts to take top prize, a score matched by ‘new boy’ Nick Eden of Teeofftimes/BRS. The runner up was another very loyal follower and regular Finalist, Bob Tawell (22) Rushmere, qualifying yet again (and beating his son Ben!) with 36pts. Paul Smith (7) Faversham came third, on countback, a score matched by Mike Verhelst (7) Bury St Edmunds, who had already qualified. Ray Griffiths (12) Mullion – a ‘new boy’ all the way from Cornwall qualified with 35pts, as did Ian Chamberlain (7) Frinton and Mark Smith (0) Hampstead both on the same score. Congratulations to all of them and we trust that they make it to the Final in Rye on Monday, May 22nd.
