The 2020 South East Open at The Berkshire was reduced to a select but competitive few to comply with the Covid-19 protocols.
Eight teams gathered at what is considered one of the UK’s top courses in glorious early Autumn sunshine and azure blue skies. The course was in magnificent condition with the fairways like a quality pile carpet and the greens like billiard tables. The conditions for could not have been better for what turned out to be an extremely tightly fought competition.
In the end only 6 points separated the teams playing in the morning competition round on the BLUE course. After rechecking the scorecards the winners this year on 88 Stableford points were the team from Phoenix Consulting pinching the trophy from the defending champions Jelmac Property Group on 87 points.
There was no individual competition this year so the trophy remains with last year’s winner , Paul Champ of Scott Parnell.
It was not anticipated that this year would be a fundraising event but as it turned out a number of the teams turned up with donation cheques and it was heart warming to know that our charity is so well supported by such generous organisations.
The Berkshire looked after us well and kept us safe and Covid Compliant and the afternoon session was enjoyed by all on the RED course as the glorious weather continued into the early evening.
