KELSO CUP FINAL
Guildford v Reigate Heath
Played at The Drift 3rd November 2019
The format for this competition is handicapped Four ball Better Ball knock out.
With a high number of Clubs putting pairs into this competition it is split into the East and West sections with the winners of each section Final then playing in the Grand Final.
Representing Guildford 1 in the West section were Graham Gosling & Steve Lampard, who had played five rounds to get to their section Final where they overcame Hoebridge 2. Likewise, Karl Edwards and Tony Brooks for Reigate Heath who beat Coombe Wood 2 in the East section Final.
With the pairs closely match this was a tightly fought Final, both pairs gave their all for 18 hole final and although Guildford were 2up at one time it was all square or one up either way throughout the game. In the end, it went to the 18th with Reigate Heath 1up on the tee, so a half was enough to secure the title and they did just that.
Our thanks to The Drift for hosting the Final and looking after everyone so well.
Congratulations to Karl Edwards and Tony Brooks the 2019 Surrey County Golf Kelso Hamilton Champions.
