On Thursday 22nd June eight 4-ball teams played at Hendon Golf Club for the annual Rooker Roberts Cup. It was a 9 hole Texas Scramble format, with teams consisting of parents, pupils and a teacher or two as well!
The Hendon course was in lovely condition and I think everyone was pleased that the weather wasn’t quite as hot as it had been all week. The fairways were hard and the greens were fast and true – it looked like a good score would be needed for victory…….especially with some of the dubious handicaps being declared (I know, sour grapes!). Anyway, three cheers for the victorious team, the Lewis’s and the Prior’s, well played! The coveted trophy was presented to the winners by previous winner and Old Belmontian Zak Demetriades (below left to right—Mr Jonathan Lewis, Mr Neil Prior, Oscar Prior, Jed Lewis and Zak Demetriades).
A big thank you must go to Mrs Heidi Parfitt for organising such a great event and the lovely supper and prizes – evenings like this only happen via the hard work of our supportive parents. Thank you.
And finally, a thank you to all the children who took part as their behaviour was exemplary throughout and impressed the watching Hendon members.
