OMGS Brent Knoll Bowl 2023

The OMGS competed in the BKB event at Burnham & Berrow on the 25th-26th March 2023

Team comprised of Melissa McMahon (overleigh)   David Gregory (Etonhurst and Capt), Freddie Turnell (Etonhurst), George Powell (Etonhurst), Stanley Richardson (Day) Phil White (Cookson)

The weather on the Saturday was 50mph winds a huge contrast to the 2022 event, but the weather is the same for everyone, so no exscuse. The pre-tournament raffle saw Millfield sell for £130 again, only being tipped shy of the Royal Air Force Golf Society. Millfield were drawn against local favourites in round one “The buckthorns”.

Millfield won this 2-1 with the first two matches winning comfortably, in for a quick lasagne and round two against “The DUGS” (Dublin university golf society) – at one point the team were on course for another 2-1 win, with the top match winning comfortably and the middle match being 3up through 13 but they somehow lost on the 18th – the Dugs would head into the final eventually losing to the Army.

This meant Millfield had to play the foursome Stapleford on the Sunday, the weather was a lot better and a couple of good scores of 35 and 31 meant Millfield came second in the Stapleford competition.

As always thanks to Burnham and Berrow for their warm hospitality.
