The victorious BG Racing team collect the trophy from RSA Chairman, Dan Abraham.
Ten teams were entered to compete, but some late withdrawals meant that seven teams lined up to compete with representatives from Foxtrot Racing, BG Racing, Martin Keighley Racing, Million in Mind, Premier Thoroughbred Racing and BDR Racing.
Oxley Park were very welcoming and bacon, sausage and egg sandwiches were consumed in the clubhouse on arrival giving players a chance to chat about golf and racing.
It was soon time to get out on the course though with each team consisting of four players with the best two scores on each hole counting towards the team score.
Premier Thoroughbred Racing prepare to hit the fairways
BG Racing were first onto the first tee and therefore just under four hours later they were also first back into the clubhouse with a very good score of 94 points and a long wait to see whether anyone could topple them from the lead.
In the end, no one could with Premier Thoroughbred Racing and Martin Keighley Racing sharing 3rd place and one of the two Foxtrot Racing teams filling the runner up spot.
RSA committee members took the individual prizes with Phil Boyle landing the Nearest The Pin competition and Tommy Williams taking the Longest Drive award and it was Phil’s BG Racing tea, who became the first syndicate to get their name on the winner’s shield.
All were in agreement that it had been a well-organised event and it was loads of fun to meet members of other syndicates and to find out more about them and their horses.
Hopefully this event will go from strength to strength and certainly all of this year’s competitors are looking forward to doing it all again in 2023!
