BRANSTON’S ANNUAL TWO-DAY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS PROVE TO BE A HUGE SUCCESS

Winners included a ladies hat-trick and a gents under par winner.

Ninety-one MEN AND twenty-one lady golfers competed at the annual Branston Golf & Country Club two-day club championships, proof that the competition continues to thrive.

The course is well known for its water hazards and being a generally challenging layout for golfers of all abilities.

The recent two-day, two-round competition determined the new ladies’ and gent’s club champions.

The winner of the Ladies Club Championship for the third year running was 30-year-old Emma Watson.

She currently works for Lorien Engineering Services and started playing golf at the age of 13 and plays off of a handicap of eight.

“I was shocked to hear that I’d won having been behind on the first day so just went out on the Sunday to play well and have fun,” said Watson, who only joined Branston Golf & Country Club three years ago but has now won the championship three years in a row.

“Getting the hat-trick of three wins in a row is especially pleasing after the hard work I’ve put in with professional Jon Watts at Branston Academy last winter – now I want to get my handicap down to six.”

Meanwhile, the Branstongents champion was also a multiple winner of the championship, 21-year-old James Wilkinson.

He plays off two and recorded an impressive score of 143 for the two rounds.

This also resulted in him being the first club champion for over a decade to record a score under par, and in the process he won his third club championship since joining Branston.

Wilkinson joined the club as a junior and works for Tutbury based developers AH Group, and he has steadily improved his game over the years.

“My golf has dropped back a bit recently, so I’m delighted to have come in under par to win this year’s club championship,” he said.

Branston Golf & Country Club’s club championship awards for 2019 were hosted by club president Alan Jinks, and prizes were presented by club captains Paul Allen, Lynne Woolley and managing director, Ben Laing in front of a packed out clubhouse.

Other prizes that were handed out at the event included the Ladies net winner Jo Hardie, Gents net winner Max Atkin, Ladies runner-up Issy Bryon and Gents runner-up James Bailey.
