Whittlebury Park Golf Club have held their annual finals day, bringing an end to the summer knock-out competitions.

In the ladies section, Jacqueline Jenkinson and Tracey Mann, defeating Mary Forman and Jackie Taylor in a thrilling match, won the Parr Foursomes final. The Jones Salver (ladies singles) was hotly contested by Tracey Mann and Alison Williams, with Tracey taking victory and in the King Challenge Trophy, Christina Hancock and Michelle Watson took Andrea Aitken and Kerry Sumner down the 20th hole before claiming the honours.

The men’s singles matches also witnessed some spectacular golf, with Christian Williams winning the Scratch Trophy after defeating Jon Newman in a hard fought match and Andrew Hallworth clinching the Sargeant having narrowly beat Phil Heavey.

In the men’s pairs finals, the Wells Foursomes Trophy went to Michael Gasper and Jon Newman, who defeated David Owen and Leigh Denoven, while Jack Parish and Wayne Platts lifted the Laser Challenge Cup, beating family members Martin and Elliott Parish.

The mixed pairs provided some entertaining golf, culminating in a triumph for Juliette Parish and Jack Parish, a mother and son team who dominated the competition from the beginning to claim the cherished Tallach Trophy.

Club captain Kevin O’Keefe and lady captain Tracey Heavey reflected on the season, saying: “The summer knock-outs have been fiercely contested but always played in a wonderful spirit of camaraderie. It’s really good to be a part of a club where competitive spirit doesn’t get in the way of great friendships being formed and we would like to congratulate all the finalists for making it through to finals day. Thanks also to the members who came along to support them.”
