Dagenham reign supreme as return with 10th consecutive British Pitch and Putt Association Inter-Club title.
Dagenham pitch and putt team made it ten straight British Pitch & Putt Inter-Club wins in a row on Sunday morning on home soil at Central Park after the team came first in the last competition of the year.
Dagenham, who needed just a hand full of points from the last meeting to take the shield, stormed home 99 shots in front of Centenary with a total of 537 to Centenary’s 636 who finished second after two Snodhurst Bottom players failed to return their cards.
Dagenham’s John Deeble took best Gross score with two under-par rounds of 51 and a five under par second round of 49 for a combined score of 100.
Best net score went to Noel Geddis of Snodhurst who shot a net 104 for his two rounds.
Nearest to pin on the tricky 14th went to Betty Cody from Ireland, while the last two qualifying places for the BPPA Match Play went to Dean Row and Kevin Obrien both from Snodhurst.
The first round also incorporated the Bob Lovell Trophy for the Dagenham Club, which ended with last week’s Captains Day winner Darren Collins holding his form to go into a six-hole play-off to be played on Sunday with Steve Deeble and Ron Cope after all three players returned with one over par rounds of 55 on the first round. Bill Leach won nearest to pin on the 18th.
The junior section was won by new member Jeff Floyd after the youngster shot two impressive rounds of 77 and 77 for a combined 154 total on the day.
Next week the Dagenham players return to club business with the start of the pair’s match play.
