Scarborough & District Golf Association

Millennium Trophy

Bridlington Links Golf Club

Saturday 23rd March 2019


The final meeting of the Alliance season took place at Bridlington Links today, with great conditions for golf, very little wind and lovely sunshine making a change from last year’s “Beast from the East”. 

Everybody was keen to start play in the very favourable conditions, with the shotgun start, players either on the tee or on the fairway, ready to commence play at 9.00am. All three teams from each member club, would count toward the Millennium Trophy which was the last trophy to be played, in what has been a fantastic season, with all ten fixtures taking place this year, which has not happened for the past six years.

The AM/AM format, with a three-quarter allowance of handicap, two of the four players counting on every hole, results would be of a mixed amount of under par and over. The course would have a bearing on the scores, playing long as Brid Links had set it up on the back tees, preparation was excellent for the time of year. The favourable score of the day was 10 under par 134, to win the prizes, was the talk before play commenced. Three teams would produce this score, R Shippey, J Mainprize, AK Smith and H Linford, from the home club Brid Links, being the better back nine, would take the last voucher place.

Malton, who have shown a consistency throughout the season, would once again produce the goods with a very good 13 under par 131, from I Charlton, J Preston, M Monkman and D Dawes to take second.

The leaders on the day, from South Cliff, G Thirkell, C Baldwin, P Dack and D Hall with quality golf, 14 under par 130, would see this quartet take the Tankards for the best score on the day. Unfortunately for South Cliff, although they had another team producing 10 under 134, their middle order faltered, so they could not add the Millennium Trophy to their Tankard winnings.

The overall winners of the “Millennium Trophy” (although none of the quartet were in the voucher awards) their team scores of 134, 135 and 139, would see North Cliff produce the consistent level of golf to add the Millennium Trophy to their previous success in securing victory of the Benn Fell, a fortnight previously, by one shot from South Cliff and a two shots from hosts Bridlington Links.

One special achievement of the day was an Ace by C Edeson, Driffield Golf Club, who had a hole in one on the 145yard par 3, 9th.

The Season has now come to an end, recommencing in September. It’s been a fantastic year, with a full fixture of events. Congratulations and thank you to all participants, to the Pennant winners Malton, Ben Fell and Millennium winners North Cliff, well played. We now looki forward to next season’s play, hopefully a full season of fixtures again.
Thank you to all participants, staff and golf courses for your support; may we wish you all the best for the remainder of your golfing season.
