the 59TH berkhamsted trophy
PRESENTED BY THE LATE HAROLD RANCE
In conjunction with:
A 72 Hole Men's Scratch Stroke Play Competition open to amateur golfers.
PLAYED ON THE 5TH,6TH & 7TH APRIL 2018.
The Berkhamsted Trophy, sponsored by Clere Golf – was won by Matt Wilcox from North Hants Golf Club with a 72-hole total of 279, five shots under par.
Wilcox, who sat three behind the leaders ahead of the three-day tournament’s final day (7 April), saw off strong challenges most notably from 15-year-old Berkhamsted member Ben Pierleoni.
Ben was leading the tournament during the final round but had to settle for tied second place, alongside Thomas Spreadborough (from Farnham Golf Club) and Arron Edwards-Hill (from Chelmsford).
Ben Pierleoni’s final score of 283 made him the best-placed of four Berkhamsted golfers in the 99-strong field. For full results, click here.
The Berkhamsted Trophy is somewhat unique in elite amateur golf circles in that it is run entirely by the club and its members, who flocked to spectate and help with the organisation.
The event was promoted on Twitter by Berkhamsted member, Ian Hall. Check out @BerkhamstedGolf and/or search #BerkhamstedTrophy for more information.
