County 7's Finals Day 2018

After winning 5 previous rounds, our Men's Team went to the County 7's Final Day on Sunday 23rd September at Barton on Sea GC.

We were drawn against Test Valley GC in the Semi-Final & after an early 8am start, the first few groups out only managed a couple of holes before torrential rain flooded both the greens & fairways and play was suspended. When play resumed 2 hours later, it was Rowlands who managed the conditions better running out comfortable 6-1 winners.

We would play the very strong team from Royal Jersey in the final with it proving to be an exciting finish!

The first 3 matches of Simon Ostrom, James Hawley & Glynn Catterall all went in our favour before the unbeaten Mark Ostrom narrowly lost on 17. With 3 matches still on the course we needed a single point to win the trophy.

With Jamie Turnbull & Paul Whiteaway both having to play extra holes to decide their matches, (which they both eventually ended up winning) it was left to Philip Hodgson to calmly roll in a 12 foot par putt to seal his match on the 18th green and ensured the Cup came home to RCGC!

At the presentation ceremony, it was announced that Rowlands Castle created a piece of Hampshire golfing history becoming the only team to have ever won the prestigious trophy on 6 separate occasions.

The team were supported on the day by Club Captain Pete Dore, Vice Captain Mark Willcox and future superstar Billy McKenzie.
