Last weekend saw Rose Hill Golf Club achieve new records at the NAPGC (National Association of Public courses) national finals weekend hosted at Staverton Estate Golf Club, Daventry. The small club established in 1921 and based at Lickey Hills Golf Course have played throughout the season against other regional clubs in order to represent the midlands at the finals and managed to get an incredible 4 teams to the national finals in competitions aimed a wide variety of ages, genders and handicaps.

The Seniors (over 55’s) playing in the Mitchell Thompson Trophy came a very credible 4th and in the Siemens trophy (for players of handicap 16-28) the team, playing betterball format, shot a very credible 153 points equalling 9 under par but unfortunately narrowly missed out on defending their 2018 title by a mere 3 points! There was however trophies won by the club in both the Hawtree Trophy and the Clapham Common Shield.

Captain Stuart Green shared his thought on the weekend, ‘For us to get 4 teams that range through all the sections of our club to the finals and follow up on last years success was incredible enough but for us to bring home two titles just shows the great spirit and mentality shared throughout Rose Hill GC, for a relatively small club we always strive to give our best and represent the club well and I think we have achieved that this weekend’.
