Congratulations to Bentley Golf Club
The final of the 2017 Leslie Wood Plate was hosted by Stock Brook Manor Golf Club on 8th October, and was contested by Crondon Park and Bentley Golf Clubs.
Both teams started confidently in very pleasant autumnal weather, on a suitably challenging golf course. The Bentley struck first with a comfortable win for Pete Weller in match 2, and after some close early exchanges the momentum quickly started to move in their favour. A half for Callum Nicholls in the lead match was followed by narrow wins for Mick Sandle, Team Captain Nathan Summers, and Mike Toft, leaving them tantalisingly close to overall victory. Brian Holdgate finally won his hard fought match against Sam Little 2&1 to give Bentley an unassailable lead with 5.5 points. The remaining matches were then called in and declared halved.
Essex Golf Union Immediate Past President, Mike Hart, presented the medals to the players and Plate Trophy to Bentley Team Captain Nathan Summers, congratulating all the players on reaching the final, and thanking Stock Brook Manor for hosting this event.
