Men’s: A. Reynolds def. D. Wright 3/1.
Ladies: N. Bingham def. G. Downey
The Reynolds Trophy, formally the C.A. Reynolds Memorial Trophy, was donated by the Reynolds family in memory of Mr Clem Reynolds, father of Jim and Bill Reynolds. The handicap match play event follows a 16-player single-elimination format played over three weeks, and has been held continuously since 1955 (men, 1960 ladies). The Reynolds Trophy continues to be one of PGC’s most prestigious events.
The men’s final between Andrew Reynolds and Denis Wright was played in cold but adequate golfing conditions, with the course in good condition for the game. With a large group of members in tow, the match proved to be a close contest with Andrew managing to close the door by winning the 17th hole for his second victory in two years.
The ladies final between Nina Bingham and Gill Downey was played mid-week in cold, wet and windy conditions, with Nina being crowned winner. Credit to both ladies for toughing the conditions for a hard fought match.
