Making History For Rose Hill GC
On a beautiful sunny Saturday, 8th of July, the NAPGC, National Association of Public Golf Courses, came to the picturesque Rose Hill Golf Club, based in Lickey Hills Golf Course, to host their Junior Championships of England. With the course playing hard and fast, the juniors from around England put on a great display of what the future of golf has to offer from the public golf courses sector.
And what a day it turned out to be for the host club as they enjoyed a hugely successful day by winning the Wilkinson Sword Trophy for the best team and The Pegrum Trophy for the best overall nett. The team success is the first Junior team trophy for the club in its 96-year history, how fitting as the club prepares for their 100th birthday in 2021.
The team, Holly Murphy, Ryan Podmore and Jack Murphy also enjoyed individual success with Holly taking the best nett for the girl’s section, Ryan winning the Pegrum cup for best overall nett of the day and Jack topping the division 4 best nett. The silverware collection was made complete with David Bickley-Parton collecting the division 3 best nett.
Overall, as a club, the Rose Hill juniors came away with 5 of the titles on offer on the day: –
BEST OVERALL NETT/PEGRUM CUP: – Ryan Podmore (65)
BEST NETT Div 3: – David Bickley Parton (68)
BEST NETT Div 4: – Jack Murphy (67)
BEST NETT Girl: – Holly Murphy (71)
TEAM PRIZE/CHAMPIONSHIP SWORD: – ROSE HILL G.C. (203)
(Jack Murphy, Ryan Podmore & Holly Murphy)
Rose Hill G.C. Junior Team will now represent The NAPGC at the England Golf Junior Champion Club competition at Woodhall Spa on 14th & 15th August 2017.
