OH Golf July 6th 2022

Familiar faces put up a strong defence as OH golf day celebrates its centenary

Hull Golf Club welcomed 31 Old Hymerians on 6 July 2022 for the annual summer fixture when five trophies were up for grabs. This year marked 100 years since the inception of the event when the Chambers Cup was the only silverware on offer.

On a gusty evening on the immaculate Kirk Ella layout, the flags were tricky and the greens were running fast and true – no wonder that no-one played under par!

There was a touch of déjà vu from the 2021 event, as three of the five trophies were successfully defended and were presented after Hull Golf Club’s legendary fish and chips by OH President, Emily Pennack.

George Clark retained the Scratch Trophy with an impressive gross 73, holding off the fast-finishing David Page who carded a 76, and dad Jonathan who returned a 77. There was consolation for Jonathan however, as he defended the Chambers Cup (Div One) with 36 points and Joel Chapman went ‘back-to-back’ in the Bastow Trophy (under 30's) with 35.

Division Two honours for the Palmer Trophy went to the evergreen Allan Craig with 36 points and Andrew Dibnah took the Veterans Cup, beating last year’s winner Julian Wild by two.

Other runners-up prizes went to Maddie Clark, Lewis Parkinson, and Adam Franks.

Organiser Jonathan Clark was delighted with the turnout. Great to see the ‘regulars’, but it was encouraging to see lots of new faces. Special mention to Stephanie Wright and Russell Young who flew in from Queensland and Western Australia respectively for the event (sort of).  Keep spreading the word and we’ll aim for 50 participants next year.

Look out on the OH website and social media for details of future golf events.
