Manor's Happy Returns


Daily Mail
26 May 2015

BROKENHURST MANOR are still in with a chance of celebrating their centenary in style by lifting the Daily Mail Foursomes trophy in October.
But two other clubs saw their last chance of marking their 100-year history with a place at the finals come to an end in the third round.
Father and son Malcolm and Daniel Cobb took Brokenhurst Manor all the way to the foursomes quarter-finals five years ago before losing to eventual champions Stuart Pinder and Lee Chape, of Boldon.
Now Sue Boyt and Shirley Campbell have made a flying start in their efforts to mark the Hampshire club’s landmark year with a finals appearance.
They breezed past Highcliffe Castle’s Margaret Hills and Gill Pimblott 8&6 in the first round and thumped High Post’s Jennifer Moffatt and Di Swanton 6&5 in round two before going past Boscombe Ladies’ Pam Brown and Sheila Tarrant in the third round.
Gina Park and Dee Ashworth were hoping to take Lowes Park to the finals in the club’s centenary year, but their hopes came to an end in the third round when they were edged out at the first extra hole by Harwood mother and daughter Dorothy and Rachel Scholes.
Likewise, in the men’s draw, Mark Longmore and Nandan Kanvinde, of the Maesdu club in Llandudno, the first municipally owned golf club in Wales when it was founded in 1915, went out in the third round. They were beaten 2&1 by Conwy’s Lee Jones, who was a member of the Golf Union of Wales squad last year, and Steve Eardley.
Sue and Shirley will have to negotiate seven rounds to reach finals week at the Marriott Forest of Arden in October.
