Alan Parkes wins Brothwell Trophy

HEYDON Grange Golf Club Venerables embarked on their annual three-day UK tour to Thorpeness Golf Club last week.

The fine weather helped the competitors better negotiate what is a notoriously tough James Braid-designed course.

The three days of play saw competition for both the Bill Cook Memorial Trophy, played on the second day, and the Brothwell Trophy for the best two scores over the three days.

Colin Edge won the Bill Cook Memorial Trophy with 33 points while the overall competition winner and collector of the Brothwell Trophy was Alan Parkes with 67 points.

David Baker (64) was runner-up while Kit Barker (63) was third.
