THE Links Country Park Golf Club hosted the inaugural match of the Norfolk Four Club Challenge Trophy last Thursday.

The four clubs involved were Middleton Hall, Wensum Valley, Yarmouth and Caister and the Links Country Park.

The event was conceived at last year's Costessey Cup as an alternative idea for an interclub friendly. Malcolm Munday undertook to flesh out the concept and organise this first event.

Eight players from each club played the course with only four clubs in their bag, with a player from each golf club making up each four ball, making it truly a four club challenge.

From the start great excitement and anticipation gripped the contest with no one knowing how well the concept would work.

Within a very short time of the team captains teeing off, it was clear that it was going to be a success. The atmosphere was friendly with the matches played in good spirit.

A presentation dinner followed which further cemented the relationships formed on the course and saw club captain Malcolm Munday receive the trophy on behalf of The Links Country Park. The team of Malcolm Munday, Roger Frost, Bob Davies, Charlie Webster, Phil Suffolk, John Seaward, Kevin Bonnett and Peter Hicks won the event with a combined score of 201 points.
