WOW….. What a weekend at Canons Brook Golf Club (Harlow).

With the weather Friday being thunderstorms and rain until at least 01:00 Saturday a few of us feared the course would be unplayable Saturday morning for the start of the Club Championship weekend. How wrong we were, at 06:00 no water to be seen on the greens, what a great job Damian and his team have done and continue to do, our sincere thanks.
On with the golf, the Hyde Harvey, always a competitive event of singles Stableford turned into a one man show, congratulations to Wayne Bowden, winning the event on Saturday by 5 shots, a similar amount to the cut he now receives to his handicap! Ryan Jones and Ross Garrard filled the places both with excellent scores 42 & 41 respectively.
Onto the Sunday and the Glasgow Quaich, an event off scratch for those 11-18 handicaps, often won by an up and coming player, desperately trying to become single figures and play in the main event. This year was no different, with Joshua Russell, an excellent supporter of the club despite his mere 16 years, shooting 9 over 82 to win by one from Tony Gay with Colin Hurley placed yet again. Joshua’s challenge now is to push on and join the Leslie Wood squad for 2020.
The main event the club championship, played over two days of the weekend off scratch and available to members with a handicap of 10 or less. 39 entrants took the opportunity to attempt to take the trophy from Stuart Weeks who had won it four years running. After Saturday, Kieran Brownsell led the field with a sparkling 72, leading by three from both Stuart and Darren Pegram. Playing together in the final 3 ball on Sunday, the lead changed hands numerous times and a playoff looked a real possibility. However it came down to the final putt on the final green with Kieran holding his nerve to hole a 3 footer to grab the trophy for the first time, with a score of 151, Stuart and Darren filling the places.
