The Diamond Trophy

The ‘magnificent six’ arrived at Heysham GC early on Saturday morning full of expectation and excitement for the Diamond Trophy Team 2018day ahead.

Having discussed tactics and game plans over breakfast we were summoned to the front of the clubhouse for team photographs.

Even though I say it myself the team looked splendid in our Ping polo shirts with club logo ( kindly arranged via Jez and Nick our excellent club professional).

The weather stayed kind all day – no rain and no wind but a little overcast.

The team to a man performed superbly with all team members contributing to the ‘team total’ which resulted in Bentham Rabbits finishing runners up to Lansil ( falling short by only 4 points).

My thanks go to all our team

The sixth member was myself who was a late replacement for Tom Duke who in the week leading up to the event had seen his handicap drop again to 16.8 thus becoming ineligible for the Diamond Trophy.


A big thanks to all Rabbits players this season for their efforts and commitment and thanks again to the guys on the day!
