BJGT Oundle Classic

What a wonderful, friendly venue Oundle Golf Club is, and one we will look forward to returning to. We would thoroughly recommend visiting to those of you that could not make it here on the day.

Our thanks go to Nes, Chris and the whole Oundle team for their support and incredible help on the day, from car park helpers to starters, marshals to bar staff, it made for a fantastic day.
The course provided a stern test, where placement was key for every division.  It was also fantastic to see the sun on a perfect day for golf.
The 6&Under Division saw Louie Goh (43) claim another victory in a very fast start to the season for him, while Emilio Hawkins claimed the runner-up trophy after his rounds of 52.
The 7-8 Division was again an immensely close affair with Zachary Blayney (40) making a habit of just having the edge, as he took another set of maximum points ahead of Brody MacIver in second, just one-shot behind. Noah Norman (42) grabbed third place after a countback decision over Hamza Marfleet.
Aditya Sawhney claimed a decisive win in the Boys 9-10 Division, as his 43 gave him a 4-shot margin over Harrison Barnett and Michael Egan.  Harrison and Michael needed a countback to separate them, with Harrison getting the nod over the last 6 holes.
Maybel Brooks secured the girls winners trophy, as she also carded a round of 47 that impressively placed her third overall.
The Boys 9-12 Junior Open Gross Division was topped by Alexander Dunmall (78) as he secured another victory ahead of a tie between Brendan Riff and Jake Jeff-Johnston.  Brendan and Jake fired matching 82’s but Brendan had the better back 9.
Kavin Yogalingam had his first win of the season in the Net Division, as his round of 60 deservedly took top spot.  Kavin was five clear of Charlie Hodgson who took home his first BJGT trophy of the season, with Alexander adding third place Net to his Gross victory.
The Girls Junior Open Gross Division saw Amelia McGinty (94) make it two wins on the bounce ahead of Sapphire Boyce (95), as she continues her comeback from injury.
The Net Division saw Elizabeth Foster (81) take the honours, with Amelia adding a runner-up trophy to her haul.
The Boys Junior Open Gross Division saw a tight finish as Maximus Maddocks secured another victory after a fine round of 75, which gave him a single shot margin over Will Hunt (2nd) and Oliver Godwin (3rd).  They were separated by the countback over the back 9.
Will (70) added the Net Division title to his Gross second place. Oliver then lost out on another countback, this time to Oliver Cheuk for second place, after the boys had matching 71’s.

The BJGT now heads down to Chesfield Downs in HItchin for the next Classic in 7 days time.
