Congratulations to Mark Parsons, who produced another exceptional performance at Crane Valley yesterday. As a member of the Little Gems team who made the journey up the B3081 for the traditional season ending Challenge Shield.
On a day when 60 golfers from Somerley, Flight Refuelling, Parley, Ferndown Forest and Sturminster struggled with some blustery conditions on a challenging golf course with firm and fast greens, Mark produced a stunning total of 40 points to take the overall first prize. And keeping it in the family, Aaron Parsons took home the nearest the pin prize!
As if that wasn’t enough, their scores, ably supported by the rest of the team, brought home the Challenge Shield for the fourth consecutive year!
Well played to all who took part. Let’s hope that next year we will be able to once again defend the league title, which we were unable to play this year. Thanks to John Rushworth for organising the Little Gems for us (and for a not insignificant 37 points himself yesterday).
