Worcestershire County Senior County Championships

The Worcestershire County Senior Championships is open to members of Worcestershire affiliated clubs who are 55 years of age and over. Golfers play for the best gross score Championship title (Neville Carrol Salver), and the Denis Hayes Salver for the best nett score, along with prizes for Gross and Nett scores across age groups.

A field of 39 played at Kings Norton Golf Club, on a course that was looking magnificent and presented challenge and as a true test of golf; players were particularly complimentary about the trueness and pace of the greens. Our thanks to the Committee and members of Kings Norton for their support, and the staff for the looking after us so well.

With the last group to post scores it looked very much like there would be a playoff with two golfers scoring 77 (Neil Mallet of Warley Woods GC and Martin Cartwright of Kings Norton GC). The last group bettered the 77’s posted earlier with two players bringing in scores of 75 so, a playoff was still required!

Duncan MacPherson (Worcester GC) and John Mangan (Hollywood GC), set off on a 3 hole play off to decide the Senior County Champion. Both were reluctant to give way and it was still evens after 3 holes and it was into a sudden death playoff. With chances on both sides, it went to a third sudden death hole for Duncan to just get ahead. A great climax to a long but enjoyable day of golf.
