Seniors and Ladies at Brett Vale GC held the annual “Rose & Two Thorns” competition on 9th August, an event for teams of three comprising two Seniors Men and one Lady member, with best two stableford scores counting.
The event had been sponsored by the now late Bill Ray, a Senior Member who had always enjoyed this format and had generously donated funds prior to his death to ensure its’ continuation.
Scoring was close on a lovely sunny morning, with the top three teams all finishing with 83 points, but having scored 44 points on the back-nine holes, the winning team was Patsy Grimsey, Dave Kilby and Barry Root (photo below receiving the trophy from Club Ladies Captain, Catherine Le Tue.
