On the 4th September, a few days after the official end of Summer, the sun beamed down on the resplendent and beautifully prepared golfing amphitheatre of The Berkshire. The construction golfing gladiators mustered and talked of great golfing victories as they prepared to do battle for the prestigious Founders Cup and the Construction Trophy.
The BLUE course was chosen for the competition round and after some spectacular golf the winners were announced at the legendary Berkshire Carvery Lunch.
The Founders Cup: This magnificent trophy is awarded to the team with the best 2 player stableford points. One of the Celtic Energy were the outright winners of the trophy after increasing their chances of winning by bringing 3 teams! Jelmac previous winners of the trophy fought gallantly to regain their title but their opposition melted away after some magnificent golf from the Welsh invasion.

The Construction Trophy: This prize is awarded to the individual with the best stableford score. Again this had an exciting conclusion. There were some exceptional low handicap golfers in the competition and some higher handicap players that were clearly having a “good day at the office” However, in the end there was one man that vanquished all. So hearty congratulations went to James Devenald, winner of the Construction Cup 2018.
