Horsham Golf Club autumn tournament makes successful return

HORSHAM Golf Club's autumn tournament made a successful return at the weekend, with strong entry numbers over three days of competition.

Golfers from more than 12 clubs competed in ladies and men's four-ball best-ball tournaments on Friday, ladies and men's 27-hole stroke competitions on Saturday and a four-ball best-ball stableford competition yesterday.

The club received 68 entries on Friday, 80 on Saturday and 50 yesterday.

Men's captain John Priestley said the tournament was revived by the club after a 15-year hiatus.

He said club members used to struggle to get a place in the traditional September tournament, so they created another tournament early in the year.

"Things changed and the September tournament started to drop off a little bit in terms of visitors and the local started to get a game in September and this one fell by the wayside a little bit," he said.

"This year the committee felt it's too good a time of year for the course not to be used.

"We thought we'd give it a try again ."
