ORDER OF MERIT - NEW SPONSOR

The Union are delighted to announce that

Heacham Manor Hotel has agreed to

sponsor the NCGU Order of Merit events

until the end of 2018.  

The partnership will see the County strip displaying the iconic Heacham Manor Hotel 'Mulberry Tree Leaves' on the players sleeves.  The traditional Match Play Championships (the culmination of the Order of Merit programme)  will be held at Heacham Manor on Saturday and Sunday the 14th and 15th of October to further cement the partnership. A splendid venue for such a prestigious tournament.

The latest OOM event at Eaton was the first in the series for our new sponsors and what a start !

All players teed up seeking points to bring them to the Match Play Championships to be held at the end of the season at Heacham Manor with the top 13 in each category (Scratch & Handicap) being offered places.

The determination was apparent for all to see.  Sub-par rounds were the order of the day to achieve points towards the end of season championships and the players responded well. 

For the scratch category: Tom Carding of Great Yarmouth & Caister returned a gross 69 and with it the victory of the day. This was closely followed by County Captain Kevin Webb of Costessey Park with a splendid 71 pipping James Hazel of Sprowston Manor also with a 71 on countback.

The honours for the Handicap category went to County Captain Kevin Webb of Costessey Park posting a nett 67 with Ben Thompson of Bawburgh 2nd on nett 69 and Matthew Strudwick of Dereham completing the podium with a nett 70

The Junior Order of Merit run in conjunction with this event saw for the Scratch category,  Josh Emery of Royal Norwich with a gross 75 taking the win, closely followed by Liam Cossey of Royal Norwich with a gross 76 and Jack Cullington of Bawburgh on a gross 78. In the Handicap category Alfie Edgson of Heacham Manor took the blue ribbon with a nett 70.
