Bristow Cup - Monday 28th August
The Bristow Cup is a mixed foursomes stableford competition. Foursomes is of course, one of the more challenging formats for golf, but this competition has the added difficulty (some might say) of both members of each pair being required to originate from the same family!
This year, in stunning August Bank-Holiday Monday sunshine and with the course in excellent condition,10 couples took part for the honour of winning the trophy, ensuring there was still some stiff competition for the placings. There were some good scores, but one pairing stood out from the rest.
The leading results were as follows:
In equal 3rd place on 29 points - Richard and Rosemary Harris
In 2nd place with 30 points - Anne Harris and John Tait
Overall winners with an impressive 34 points - Jane and Philip Anderson
Well done to all those above and to the others who took part.

The Ashes Cup - Sunday 1st October
The Ashes Cup commemorates the rebuilding of the clubhouse in 1955/56 after the disastrous fire which destroyed nearly everything Bedfordshire Golf Club treasured from before this time. The trophy is constructed from the old trophy metal found in the fire and it is undoutedly one of the nicest trophies in the trophy cabinet. Historically, there has always been a supper the previous evening, where partners are drawn for the competition taking place the following day.
However, this year by popular demand, there will be draw at 12 noon, with tee-off's at 13.00 followed by dinner and presentations in the evening. It is a mixed foursomes stableford competition but with partners being drawn which adds to the excitement. Players must attend the dinner to receive the trophy.
If you would like to take part, whether you're a regular mixed-golfer, or indeed new to this format, just sign up on the sheet on the Social Noticeboard in main reception. Remember, you don't need a regular partner to sign-up, as there are always other individuals looking for a partner for this popular event.
