Hull Golf Club welcomed 24 Old Hymerians on 28 June 2023 for the annual summer fixture when five trophies were up for grabs. Thunderstorms threatened, but fortunately never really materialised and only the last couple of groups got caught in it late in their round.

Mark Bentley (OH 1971-79) made his first appearance at the event in five years and won the Scratch Trophy which he first won in 1981. His impressive gross 68 ended George Clark’s (OH 2011-21) two year winning streak. The Newcastle University golf captain had to settle for a runners up spot with his 76, beating David Page (OH 1979-86) on countback. 

Another returnee after a long absence was Phil Craig (OH 1981-90) who took the Chambers Cup (Div One) with 37 points. An incredible hole out from a greenside bunker at the short 16th for birdie was the highlight of his round. He beat Lewis Parkinson (OH 2010-17) by two points and playing partner and old schoolmate Jonathan Clark (OH 1980-90) by three.

Division Two honours for the Palmer Trophy went to Julian Wild (OH 1962-70) who took time off from his love of horseracing to gallop to a best of the day 38 points.

The Bastow Trophy for under 30s was won by Joel Chapman (OH 2008-18) for the third year running with a solid 36 points, beating Alex Limb (OH 2007-17) by four.

At the other end of the age spectrum, OH past President Edward Clark (OH 1950-58) made a spectacular 4 down the last to win the Veterans Trophy donated by his father Kenneth (OH 1923-26) in the 1980s. David Hider (OH 1956-66) fell two short of Edward’s 32 points.

The Kirk Ella course has rarely been in better condition and the fish and chips were a perfect way to round off a great evening.
