Bert Crowe Memorial Trophy
Wednesday, 21st July
What a lovely day! Some would say” it’s too hot for me” but it was preferable to cold wet weather. Thirty nine players battled their way round and there were some very good scores recorded. Congratulations to Jim Biles who registered a magnificent 38 points, not enough to put him in amongst the prizes but very good never the less. Congratulations to Dicky Lanigan, the winner of The Bert Crowe Trophy with 44 points.
18 people stayed for the lunch, which again was very enjoyable, thanks to all the staff involved. Unfortunately only one of the 6 place winners was present at the lunch, this is very unfortunate and it detracts from the ‘theatre’ of the event, and no photographs to record the winner. This situation must be addressed or we will loose the whole point of presentation events.

The Rest-of-the-World team sweep to victory
On a beautiful summers day, 10 teams contested the 2021 Cyder Cup and what a thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all. The course is slowly returning to a good condition although there are still a couple of greens that leave a bit to be desired, ‘work in progress’.
It was good to see 23 players staying for the lunch after the match, this is what the Senior section is all about. Not just the golf but an interaction between people socialising and having a ‘good time’. We need more of this following the various lockdowns.
Thanks must go to Tom Greaves who once again organised the event and it went off without a hitch (much like the swan, serene on top, paddling like hell underneath), well done Tom.
The Rest of the World won the day, captained by Ron Harris who lost his match to ‘deadly Dave’ (David Gough) who never missed a fairway, while Ron rarely found a fairway!!
Thanks must also go to Wyboston Lakes staff who provided a very enjoyable lunch and were also on hand to serve drinks when required.
This is the second consecutive year that the Rest of the World have won the cup. Come on England, otherwise you could finish up like the England cricket team or even the football team!
Ron Harris. Rest of the World Captain
