Tony Daniels Sat 14th Sep 2019
The Tony Daniels Memorial Trophy is a pairs competition which alternates between the clubs each year. This year it was held at Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club on Saturday the 14th September.
The winners were the GY & Caister captain Blair Ainslie and Simon Clark with a great 44 points.
It was a really great day with 40 players. Unfortunately no one from Rookery Park or Bungay entered but it proved to be a very competitive day with great weather and the golf course in superb condition.
Also a great moment when the winners of the Tony Daniels in 1979, the Sperrins, were sitting by the trophy waiting for the players to come in. We got a photo, 40 years on!

Millennium Cup Latest
The final was played on the 15th August at Caldecott Hall. Bungay beat the Rookery Rebels 3-2 to win the Millennium Cup for the 1st time since 2003. Well done Bungay and commiserations to Rookery who just failed to win. It was a great night for friendship. Many thanks to Peter Bunn and to Jim Barber for their continued efforts over the years for the Thursday league. Jim is off to Lincolnshire and Peter is stepping down from the captaincy.
Rookery Trawlermen win the league a week early. - Well done.
The Trawlermen drew their last match at Caldecott but still won the league by 9 points. A very dominant season for them. Conversely the Cavaliers were well short of the rest by 9 points. After some tight games in the last week the Caister NTB's clinched the runners up spot. See the results and table here for the final week - click here
Norfolk and Suffolk Golf League - the 'Thursday League'
Four golf clubs, Bungay and Waveney, Caldecott Hall (2 teams), Gt Yarmouth and Caister (2 teams) and Rookery Park (2 teams) play against each other in a league every Thursday between the last Thursday in April and the last Thursday in July, tee off time starting at 16.30.
The matches are played alternately home and away, so four matches each Thursday.
The format is foursomes matchplay, with a maximum handicap of 21 and an younger age limit of 16, with five pairs per team.
The original idea was to have a friendly set of matches between like minded golfers and for the most part the games are played in a great spirit, playing golf being the number one requirement with winning coming second. The matches always end up with dinner and drinks so a great time for all.
The league points are derived from the number of games won and drawn in each match.
At the end of the season the winners are awarded trophies.
