The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

Moor Aller­ton won the top prize at the Se­niors Tro­phy at Dyrham Park Coun­try Club.

The Leeds club claimed the Coombe Hill Tro­phy af­ter edg­ing out Bon­ny­ton by one shot.

Moor Aller­ton fin­ished with a gross ag­gre­gate of four out of six scores, with the count to­talling 327.

Lol Green won the Harts­bourne Tro­phy for best in­di­vid­ual gross score. The Abridge mem­ber went round in 79, beat­ing Sey­mour Bor­lant of Moor Aller­ton on a count back.

The Dyrham Park Tro­phy for the best in­di­vid­ual net score was won by Tom Traf­ford of Lee Park with a score of 70.

Or­gan­ised by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs & So­ci­eties, the com­peti- tion is open to all af­fil­i­ated clubs and so­ci­eties en­ter­ing teams of six male golfers who have reached the age of 55.

In these times of vig­or­ous dis­cus­sion sur­round­ing the strength of Jewish golf, the as­so­ci­a­tion wel­comed Wes­sex Jewish Golf So­ci­ety to the competition.

Dyrham pre­sented the course in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion with many of the com­peti­tors strug­gling with the speed of the greens, and the rel­a­tively high scores re­flected the dif­fi­culty.

David Har­ris, sec­re­tary of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs & So­ci­eties, said: “The com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere af­forded the op­por­tu­nity for friend­ships forged over decades com­pet­ing in Jewish golf tour­na­ments to be re­newed and strength­ened.”
