AT Monmouthshire Golf Club’s recent Finals Day, Greg Harris was crowned the club champion after

beating Cameron Powell in the 36 hole competition.

Caroline Cole won the Ladies Championship, beating Dawn Towell, in a match where the standard of golf was exceptionally high.

Cole’s first victory came in 1997 and she has won 12 championships altogether, an impressive total.

The latest junior success for the club this season came when Oliver Hulbert won the Ping Welsh Junior Tour in great style. Organised by Golf Wales, the competition is aimed at encouraging young golfers and there are six regional events culminating in the Finals that were played at Newport Golf Club.

Hilbert did remarkably well, winning both the Order of Merit for the regional events as well as the Final – a golfer to watch for the future it seems.

Other Final Day winners include Mike Smith who won the Nantoer Cup, Lorrraine Taylor won the Gethin Bowl, Lesley Smith won the Bush Salver, Annie Davies and Maureen Jones won the Beverley Burton foursomes, the Ruther Cup was won by Stuart Richie and Dave O’Connell, the Mixed foursomes was won by Liz Law and Tony Smith, Annie Davies won the Bronze championship and Derek Newitt won the Seniors Trophy.

The Club Captain and the Ladies Captain joined together this year in their charity appeal and together they raised an amazing £5000 for Alzheimer’s UK.
