RPGC Team are BIGGA National Champions
Following their success earlier in the year, the Rothley Park Green Keepers Team yesterday travelled to Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire to compete in the National Final of the BIGGA Green Keepers event.
The team, Nigel Colley, Asa English, Jon Feeley and Tom Roberts, qualified at the Regional BIGGA event in July at St Neots with 85 points in an Am Am competition.
On Monday 1 October, with the other 9 entrants that had qualified in their respective regional events, the gentlemen played a very tough course. Frilford held the qualifying school for the tour professional last week, so the greens were very fast and hard to put on.
The RPGC team played fantastically on the day winning the event by 2 shots with a score of 86 points (14 under par). This is a great result not only for the team but also for Rothley Park Golf Club as we are now the National Champions.
