AS the competitive golf season draws to a close, members of Clevedon Golf Club can reflect upon the most successful playing year in the history of the club.
Leading the way was the men’s section, with the first team gaining promotion to Division 1 of the Bristol & District Golf League.
In the county knockout competitions, the club nearly completed a clean sweep of all three trophies. They were victorious in both the handicap and scratch senior competitions, and lost narrowly in the final of the Somerset Bowl.
Not to be outdone, the ladies section, under the captaincy of Juliet Hagley, also gained promotion to Division 1 of the Ladies Golf Alliance.
After a hard fought campaign, they finished top of their division to secure the Trill Cup. In the Somerset Ladies Golf Union, Clevedon won the Rogers Knockout Cup after a thrilling final against Farrington. The Clevedon players held their nerve to secure victory, with three matches needing to go to extra holes.
The junior section also had a successful year, but just missed out on the Bristol & District junior knockout trophy, going down to a strong Bath team in the final.
Club captain Tim Liddeatt said “I would like to congratulate all of the team captains and players on their performances over the season. Their success has shown that our club can attract and develop players to a very high standard, and the whole club will be proud of their achievements.
“As a club, we have one of the finest courses in the region, and we warmly encourage new members to join us.”
