the Ry­der Cup, Cuthers said.

‘‘It was hum­ble and quiet in Master­ton. We weren’t loud or over the top,’’ he said.

‘‘We got back to our club that night and there was plenty of singing and cel­e­brat­ing.

‘‘The next day we hosted our fam­i­lies and sup­port­ers at Judge­ford, to thank them for ev­ery­thing they’d done for us dur­ing the long sea­son.’’

Cuthers said they will be in for a tough ride in di­vi­sion 1, but will be well-pre­pared and happy to have un­der­dog sta­tus.

Be­fore last sum­mer they played Mi­ra­mar and while they were beaten, took a lot from it, he said.

The team’s aim now was to stay above the rel­e­ga­tion places, Cuthers said. All their di­vi­sion 1 team is likely to be avail­able next sum­mer.

Cribb said get­ting to di­vi­sion 1 was a huge fil­lip for Judge­ford.

‘‘It’s a mas­sive achieve­ment, but now our goal is to stay there and Joe has set the right tone for that to hap­pen.

‘‘I don’t think we’ve re­alised the im­pact it could have yet but, we think it could re­ally in­crease our pro­file, help­ing us to re­tain and grow mem­ber­ship.’’

Judge­ford Golf Club pres­i­dent John Spence said the team’s new sta­tus was a shot in the arm for the club and an op­por­tu­nity that should be em­braced.

The club is seek­ing spon­sor­ship for in­ter­club sea­son next sum­mer.
