The 2024 Champion of Champions event has been won by Richard Lewis.  The eight handicapper shot a four over par round of 71 (nett 63) to win the event by three strokes from club president Trevor Bingham (nett 66).  Former winner Ian Burrows finished a further shot back in third place.  It was Richard’s 10th appearance in the event and he finally got over the line after several previous runner-up finishes.

The competition was played as a shotgun start in good weather and relatively still conditions.  The competitors had all qualified by winning – or finishing runner-up – in a previous competition during 2023.  With the tee’s pushed back and the soft fairways the course was playing tough, and there were only a handful of scores below par.

Richard earned a £500 contribution towards next year’s club subscription, and Trevor earned a £200 contribution.  Club Captain Ian Morris presented the trophy and praised the groundsmen for producing an outstanding golf course.  Since the arrival of the new head greenkeeper Darren Marsden Smith – from the prestigious Moor Park club –  the course has seen significant improvement.
