Golfers to the fore in Canons Brook 50th anniversary celebration tournament

GOLFERS turned out in force in a special competition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Harlow’s Canons Brook Golf Club.

Sixty-four teams and a total of 128 players competed in the Fullers sponsored open day for amateur golfers at the Elizabeth Way club.

Numbers were boosted by an appeal in the Star.

Roy Croft and Dennis Mitchell won the members section of the event with 45 stableford points.

Gary Jones and Kevin Elkins, from neighbouring Manor of Groves GC in High Wych, won the visiting team event.

There was a total prize fund of £1,200 pounds.

Ron Finch from sponsors brewers Fullers handed out the prizes.

The idea behind the competition was to attract golfers to try out the club and Canons Brook hope many who played the picturesque course will return more often.

Club captain Brian Munro said: “Many thanks to the Star for your assistance in promoting the event. I actually played with a young man who entered having seen the event promoted in the Harlow Star. It was a great day even though it rained steadily for most of the round.”

The club’s celebrations continue with the pro-am which takes place on July 24.
