Hull Golf Club welcomed 23 Hymerians on 19 June 2024 for the annual summer fixture, where five trophies were up for grabs. The weather was perfect, as was the Kirk Ella layout which was in immaculate condition with tricky pins and slick greens making scoring difficult.

George Clark, OH 2011-21 claimed his third Scratch Trophy in four years. Despite an ugly 6 – 6 finish, George’s 77 was good enough to beat his dad Jonathan, OH 1980-90 by four shots with Dave Page, OH 1979-86 and Ian Jones, OH 1972-82 a shot further back.

Jonathan had the consolation of winning the Division One Stableford prize with 34 points. A two at the last short hole 16th rescued an up and down round to take the Chambers Cup for the sixth time. He just edged out Ian Jones who returned 33.

Division Two honours for the Palmer Trophy went to Julian Wild, OH 1962-70 who retained his title with 31 points. Runner up was Richard Gore, OH 1958-66 with 27.

The Bastow Trophy for under 30s was won by Max W (current student, 2017) with a best of the day 39 points. He beat Hull’s Junior Captain Harry E (current student, 2020) by three points. It was great to see four current students compete in the event and we wish them all the best for the national schools final at Woodhall Spa next month.

At the other end of the age spectrum, John Canby, OH 1956-65 lifted the G. Kenneth Clark, OH 1923-26 Veterans Trophy with 29 points from former Head of Sport Chris Fitzpatrick, OH Staff 1980-2016.

The Kirk Ella course has rarely been in better condition and the legendary fish and chips were a perfect way to round off a great evening. Jonathan Leafe presented the prizes with Scratch winner George Clark making an excellent speech to thank the greenkeepers, bar and catering staff and the Pro Shop team.
