WARDMAN & CARR REPORT
County 1st teamers and our top junior pair Oscar Bartram and Sam Allen got proceedings under way but were not on their top game and shot 1 over par better ball score of 71. The top gross score on the day and the winner of the Wardman Trophy was Oakmere Parks Nathan Fox and on form Oliver Parry, Chilwell Manor who shot a superb 1 under par 69, close on their heels were the Notts girls pair Amelia Wan and Libby Kilbride who edged out Coxmoor pair Isaac Payne and Sam Greatorex, shooting 70 gross but having a better back 9.
Moving onto the Carr Trophy, which is the Handicap competition. Early starters Nathan Gill and Alex Simmons shot an impressive Nett 64 to set the early pace, but then came along the Notts golf club and The Nottinghamshire Golf Club pair of Lennon Albans and Kai Saville who led for a long time with a 64 Nett.
Then the 2nd to last pair out Molly Campbell (Age 10) Beeston Fields and George Cooper (Age 8) shot a superb Nett 61, their win and age must be a record; great products of the County’s Nippers Tour. What really made the day was Molly’s winning speech which an adult would have been proud of.
Special thanks to Radcliffe on Trent who presented us with a beautiful golf course and the clubhouse staff looked after us very well.
