Midland Region Golf Management Trophy Competitions 2002

The Midland Region Golf Management Trophy Competitions 2002, sponsored by Scotts UK Professional were held at Hartsbourne Country Club, Bushey Heath on August 7 and Beeston Fields Golf Club, Nottingham on 14 August.

Club teams comprising of Head Greenkeeper, Secretary, Captain and Chairman of Green competed in a 4-ball stableford format for £200.00p worth of Scotts products and individual prizes for team members in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The weather was superb for both days as was the welcome, co-operation and catering at both clubs. The courses were in excellent condition, and our thanks are extended to David Stenton and his staff at Hartsbourne and David Bellamy and staff at Beeston Fields for providing wonderful playing conditions.
