* The Ted Drakes Trophy was held at Louth Golf Club, but was also open to Kenwick Park’s men.
Scoring was very good and a countback on 67 separated the top four players. Kenwick’s Chris Dixon won with a round of 83-16=67 from Louth’s Chris Parker (75-8=67). Louth’s head greenkeeper Graham Ives was third with 81-14=67, and Kenwick Park’s Tom Gladwell (72-5=67) took fourth place.
One-handicapper Billy Wright, from Kenwick Park, was sixth after a great round of 69-1=68.
