Winner Ludlow Stewart (left)This year’s annual Founders Day event was held at Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club in Kidderminster.

It was a small field of 28 players that turned up for the challenge. This event is not one of the majors and the smaller than usual field may be the reason for this. Also, the format for this event is medal rather than the normal Stableford format.

With that in mind we all knew every stroke counted.

Cleobury Mortimer is a course that consists of three loops of nine which are the Badgers Sett, Deer Park & Foxes Run. On the day we played the Deer Park & Badgers Sett

As with the previous event at the Welcombe the course had suffered from a lot of rain over the preceding week and the course was not at its best with the Deer Park being quite muddy under foot. The Badgers Sett was slightly better but the greens throughout having previously being hollow tined were very poor.

Despite the conditions though there were some good scores that came in.

The results were as follows

1st place and winning his first CGS event went to Ludlow Stewart with an excellent nett 69.

2nd place Captain Eddie Wedderburn with a nett 71

3rd place Mick Taylor with a nett 72

Longest Drive was won by one of our guests Emerys Karemo

Nearest the pin also won by our other guest Howard Browne
