Our Broom Memorial Trophy was held this year on Sunday 9 July in very stormy conditions.
Nevertheless, it was a successful event with the winners romping home to victory after they had to postpone their game due to lightening.
The klaxon sounded whilst they putted out on the 16th green and they returned to 17th tee an hour later to resume their game and win the competition with a net score of 63.
Winners were home players Paul Bywater and Joan Bywater pictured above with Captain Mike Aves presenting the trophy.

We’re the proud holders of the Derbyshire Ladies Scratch Team Cup for only the second time in the competition’s near 100-year history.
Until the weekend, Chesterfield GC had won the event just once since its inception in 1924 – and that was way back in 1932.
But our members Eva Myers and Mel Davey etched their place in history when they won the two-person event at Chapel-en-le-Frith GC.
Fourteen-year-old Eva finished third in the 36-hole Derbyshire Ladies Amateur Championships with gross scores of 85 and 81.
Mel finished joint fourth with scores of 82 and 85.
With the best two individual scores counting for the team trophy it meant they combined to lift the coveted silverware.
Perhaps victory was always on the cards… as Mel started the day with a superb albatross two on the par five first.
To cap a great day for Chesterfield GC, Mel’s performance secured her the best net prize too.
And the good news doesn’t end there…
Eva, and Mel will be joined by another of our rising star lady members, 18-year-old Olivia Streets, in representing the Derbyshire 1st team in the Midlands North Region County tournament to be held at Holme Hall Golf Club, Lincolnshire, on 16-18 June.
The sun shone down on our glorious course and happy golfers enjoyed our hospitality as we welcomed 72 players in our Mixed Open AmAm.
Congratulations to our winners:
1st place (76pts) - Paul Bartram, Lynne Bartram, Allan Tubb and Gill Tubb (Rushcliffe GC)
2nd place (76pts) - Jayne Hutchings, Ivan Hutchings, Gary Thompson, and Sheree Thompson (Handsworth GC)
3rd place (75pts) - Virginia Whitehead, David Culpan, Richard Breakwell and Karen Breakwell (Ruddington Grange GC)
4th place (71pts) - Brian Linnington, Nick Woodford, Helen Linnington and Jill Woodford (Erewash Valley GC)
Well played all! We’ll be in touch with details of your prizes.
