The final of the HHDGU scratch foursome final was held at Bradley Hall on Sunday 17th September. The final was an all Dewsbury District GC with the pairings of Stuart Atkinson & Johnathon Binns v Fergus Barron and Danny Hartley who had battled to the final with thirty two pairings starting the first round back in June. The morning round was played in poor weather conditions with heavy showers, after 18 holes Stuart and Johnathon had established a three hole advantage. The afternoon round was played in much better weather conditions and early in the 2nd round the advantage had increased to four up, and it seemed it might be easy going for the pair, however over the next few holes two errant tee shots resulting in lost balls reduced the lead to only two with nine holes to play. During the next few holes the match became all square, however in the end Stuart and Johnathon were able to get back into the lead towards the finish resulting in a two in one victory.
Congratulations to Stuart and Johnathon, on taking the title, and well done to Fergus and Danny in reaching the final and taking the 36 hole final right down to the wire.
All four players have represented Dewsbury District Golf Club extremely well, something that as a club we should be very proud of.
