MARSON MASTERS THE ARDEN
This year saw a record entry of 30 players all qualifying for the tournament by winning their own Club Championship event earlier in the year.
With this event being held towards the end of the season it is always a little touch and go regarding the weather, and this year was particularly tricky with a consistent downpour of rain from start to finish. Thankfully, the Arden course stood up admirably to the conditions with the greens remaining playable throughout and everyone managing to complete their round.
However, considering the conditions and the fact that the Competition Standard Scratch went to 75 (!) a fantastic 2 under par gross 70 was returned from Rugby's Dale Marson which was good enough to take the title of Warwickshire Champion of Champions.
Dale has been involved with County Golf for a long time however, it was his first time of qualifying for this event which made him especially happy with winning this title in his first appearance. Graham Hayes, the County Union President presented the prizes where Dale thanked those present for playing and also the Forest of Arden for hosting the event.
Rugby Golf Club extends our very best wishes and congratulations to Dale for a job well done.
