2019 Bontor Trophy

2018
 
The Bontor Trophy is the annual Men vs. Ladies singles match play event.

The two Captains go head-to-head. The remaining matches are drawn in strict handicap order.  The Captains usually play in the first game and other games go out in any order.

As in regular match play, the higher handicapper receives an allowance of the full difference between the handicaps of the two players. The handicaps shall be adjusted if necessary for any stroke allowances that may be relevant for mixed competitions (click here for details). Any shots are taken against the Men's stroke indices.

The Bontor Trophy is awarded on the day of the event to the winning Captain (Honours Board). No further prizes are awarded, although it has been known for a Wooden Spoon to find its way to the man who loses by the largest margin.

The course and tee time are to be advised.

Match Report
Report by Deborah Potter

Winners:  The Ladies 9˝-6˝

There have been many famous and exciting events that have happened throughout history on 10 August including: Mozart completing “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”, Ecuador declaring independence from Spain, Jack Nicklaus winning the 4th PGA Championship and the Louvre opening.

However, are any more memorable that Saturday 10 August 2019 on Dukes Course in Richmond Park Golf Club, London when on the annual men versus ladies challenge, the ladies successfully won back the Bontor Trophy.

It was an excellent, fun and enjoyable day with 32 players who started out after bacon rolls and coffee to face the windy, mixed conditions and do battle. Captains Nigel Gaymond and Deborah Potter teed off first, there were 16 matches in 8 games. Men in red and ladies in black & white. The conditions felt more like links golf in winter than summer in London. Cake and drinks were well-deserved afterwards as we awaited the results with much anticipation. The final score was 6.5 to the men and 9.5 to the ladies.
