BRYNHILL Golf Club finally staged its Covid and weather-delayed Captains Prize over the weekend when the golfing gods blessed us with perfect golfing weather and with the magnificent beast of a course being set up in a very friendly manner, good scores were the order of the weekend.

Top boy over the 36 holes was Andy Anstee with a 10 under handicap total of 134.

Andy is possibly the slowest golfer in Western Europe and getting stuck behind him on the course is like following a tractor down five-mile lane, indeed personally I’d rather go to Debenhams clothes shopping with the wife because the time passes quicker.

However that takes nothing away from the ponderous plodders performance over the 36 holes, a great score and a well-deserved win.

Best of the real golfers was IPC and current club champion Jamie Griffiths, who continued his rich vein of form to grab the best two-day gross prize with a sizzling 143.

Best Net on Saturday was cheap firework Lewis Millar with the gross going to Scotty Bowman.

While Sunday’s gross was claimed by Lee Price with Kevin (he was decent when he was younger) Perry taking the best net.

Saturday sees the Barry Club stage the prestigious Glamorganshire County Championship, when the cream of the county’s golfing talent will test their skill over two rounds on the rolling fairways, the course had suffered with the recent wet weather but the green keeping staff have worked hard to get it back to tournament standard and a great day of competitive golf is anticipated.

Sunday sees us return to club comps with the start of the four-week eclectic Barry and District Cup, a time when the handicap bandits suddenly see a surge in their popularity and a demand for their company on the course.

Irrespective of results at Brynhill, golf is always the real winner.
