Sunday 4th September 2011
Nineteen pairs played in this year’s Parent-Junior Cup and Under 14s Competiton. Despite heavy rain at the start the scoring was excellent.
Highlights included 9 year old Kiran Malik’s birdie 3 from the Blue Tees on the 2nd hole, 10 year old Finn Stephens’ birdie 4 from the Blue Tees on the 9th hole, and Tom Sillitoe’s eagle 2 at the 2nd hole.
Verulam finished second in this year’s East Herts League. Our points total of 42.5 would have been sufficient to win the league in many years but Brickendon Grange had an outstanding year. They also won the scratch and handicap team competitions at Finals Day for the second year in a row.
