Taskers Trophy - Supporting Junior Golf

The 2019 Final was played at Beeston Fields Golf Club on Sunday 29 September. It was a very rainy day with some finer weather at times. In the final of the ladies’ Taskers event, the Ian Bartoft Trophy, Beauchief A beat Little Aston A 5½ to 1½. The men’s Taskers Final and Plate were also played and Hillsborough A beat Mapperley F 5 to 2 in the Taskers Final and Ormonde Fields B beat Uttoxeter A in the Taskers Plate. NCLGA received a donation commensurate to the number of ladies’ teams entered; 15 ladies teams entered and this resulted in NCLGA receiving a donation of £750.

I would like to encourage all Clubs to enter as many ladies’ teams as they can. It is a great event to play in because teams have the opportunity and pleasure of playing other teams from other courses in this County and the surrounding Counties. It’s a win, win situation and. if more ladies’ teams enter from Nottinghamshire, more money will be received by our County Junior Girls at the end of the year.

Before the Presentation all the teams, their supporters and County Officials were treated to an excellent roast beef dinner with all the trimmings, sticky toffee pudding, ice cream and coffee. After the prize-giving the County Presidents received the donation to their County Juniors and said a few words of thanks to the Crawfords for their sponsorship and excellent organisation of the event. Beeston Fields were to be congratulated on providing a great venue and keeping the course playable in spite of heavy rain at times.
