Cottrell Park won the Ping Mixed Team Challenge at Abersoch Golf Club on 8 October, so retaining the trophy the club won last year.

Sixty teams of six players from all over Wales competed in the annual match play knockout competition run by Wales Golf and sponsored by Ping.

After four rounds, four teams played in the semi final.  This year Cottrell Park played Royal Porthcawl then Woodlake Park in the final.

The players representing the Club in the finals were Bill Bryce and Nan Thomas, Tony Parsons and Helen Evans, Tony Williams and Megan Cullinane.  Eleanor Lewis, Helen Little, Tina Morgan and Lowri Roberts also played in previous rounds.

Team Manager, Jenny McGlyne, said, ‘Cottrell Park has reached finals weekend in each of the past five years.  To win this prestigious competition once is an achievement. Winning twice in successive years is an even greater feat which no other club has done.  All the players have shown great commitment and truly work together as a team’.
