Meltham Trophy 2023

The Meltham Trophy 2023 has come to an end, and what a fantastic day it was! The weather was on our side, and it stayed pleasant throughout the day. The storm waited until the night to unleash its fury, and we were glad it held off until the competition was over.

First and foremost, we would like to thank everyone who played in this year’s event and everyone who supported and helped make the day run so smoothly.  It was fantastic to see all of you in high spirits and having a good time on the course.

Congratulations to Eddie Battye for finishing in first place with an impressive score of 135! His score was a combination of his rounds of 71 and 64, making him the worthy winner of this year’s Meltham Trophy. Ian Towers secured second place with his rounds of 67 and 73, scoring a total of 140. Nick Howe claimed third place with a score of 141 after completing his rounds of 69 and 72.

Luke Jessop played remarkably well, finishing in fourth place with a score of 143 after playing rounds of 71 and 72. Simon McKenzie rounded off the top five with a score of 146, with rounds of 76 and 70. Each player demonstrated an excellent display of golf skills and talent throughout the day.

Additionally, we would like to congratulate Habib Khan for his excellent overall gross score of 142. He played incredibly well and showed remarkable consistency over both rounds, ultimately earning him the title of best overall gross. Toby Garrett was crowned as the winner of the best gross round 1 with a score of 70, while Josh Bailes took the crown for the best gross round 2 with a score of 71.

Well done to Rob Dunleavy for achieving the best nett score for round 1 with his score of 70. David Johnson also played phenomenally, earning him the title of best nett score for round 2 with a score of 70.

We were pleased to hear all the feedback we received from players who enjoyed the golf course. The greens keepers put in a tremendous amount of effort, which undoubtedly paid off. We appreciate all the positive comments we have received and look forward to building upon this success in the future. A special thanks to our members for allowing us to close the course on Friday in preparation for the event.

We also wanted to give a huge shout out to our amazing hospitality team. They worked tirelessly to ensure that everyone had delicious food and drink to keep them fuelled for the day’s events.

Finally, thank you all once again to everyone who made this year’s Meltham Trophy a truly fantastic event.
