It was a big day for the four golfers; Clifford Norton, Matt Cody, Bob Forbes and Julian Caplan, who completed the two courses, Melbourne and Palmerston, at the hall.
Mr Norton said: “We completed all four rounds and completed 33 miles while having a little competition between us. If you look at many of the other teams and courses you will see the two courses at Brocket, the Palmerston and Tthe Melbourne, are quite a bit longer, hence our 33 miles compared to most other teams doing around 25 miles.”
Nationally the team ranked 4th out of the 459 teams that entered throughout the UK.
