Golf - Edmondson gives masterclass

More than 50 accountants turned out for Home Counties regional final at the gruelling Brocket Hall course on 30 June

The penultimate regional final of the Accountancy Age Masters 1999 turned out to be the best attended of this year’s competition, sponsored by the corporate finance specialist NMB-Heller, as 51 golfers competed for places in the final.

Hosted at Hertfordshire’s Brocket Hall Golf Club, famous for its namesake and previous owner Lord Brocket who was imprisoned for fraud, the Home Counties final featured spectacular holes and fairways that made excellent use of the natural landscape in the stately home’s grounds. No fewer than four holes required competitors to play over the lake that bisects the club’s Melbourne Course.

The notorious 18th proved toughest of all. The green can only be reached by taking a trip on the Brocket Hall ferry and the hole deceived many of the competitors. Players not only dropped shots but lost their balls completely in the deep water, tempted by an inviting hole layout to attempt to carry the water with their second shot. Not many managed it.

Eventual winner Richard Edmondson took the top prize with a stableford score of 37. He was followed closely by Colin Howe, who scored 36 points including an impressive 19 on the tough back nine. Third place was taken by Arun Ganatra who also scored 36 but with 17 on the back nine.

Alex Guberman won the prize for getting nearest the pin on the ninth hole, while Bill Holmes blasted the ball furthest to take the prize for the longest drive of the day on the 11th hole.
