Winners Sitwell Park GC
MacKenzie Medallion 2023 – Morecambe GC
Celebrating 100 years of moving to the location the 2023 Medallion was held at Morecambe Golf Club on Sunday 3 rd September. All eyes were on the returning 3 players from Hadley Wood to see if they could complete a hat-trick of wins but it was not to be, albeit a fighting effort saw them finish in 3 rd place with 62 points.
Runners up were the team from Horsforth also with 62, but well ahead were competition debutants Sitwell Park with an impressive 66 points. Captain Glenn Charlton gave a most gracious speech and expressed thanks to the Society for the invitation to play.
On a tricky course on which scoring proved difficult the best Gents individual score was 34 points by Allan Boswell from Bramall Park, with runner up William Bracha, Junior Captain at Sitwell Park, on 33. The result for Ladies was an all Morecambe affair, with runner up Club President Rosemary Rogers on 30 points and winning was Lady Captain Jane Brooks on 32.
Morecambe were superb hosts, and organisation and warm welcome were greatly appreciated by all who attended.
Bolton Old Links Golf Club will host the 2024 Medallion on Sunday, September 8th .
The MacKenzie Society returned to Horsforth GC in Leeds on 12th June and were welcomed with a course presented in excellent condition by Course Manager, Kyran Lilley.
Weather conditions were excellent, too, if a little hot. The golf wasn’t quite so hot, but the steak pie following the game was delicious and fully made up for the generally, average golf. But, the golf is purely secondary – the team at Horsforth GC did us all proud on the day and we look forward to returning there again soon.
