Park House crowned Kent Golf Challenge champions

PARK House FC claimed the county bragging rights as the team scooped Wooden Spoon Kent’s Rugby Club Golf Challenge and helped to raise £8,200 for the children’s charity of rugby.

Golfers from the Bromley-based club joined a total of 30 four-ball teams for the competition, which was held at Knole Park Golf Club in Sevenoaks, and secured a first-place finish after recording 101 points.

Dartfordians RFC pushed Park House all the way as they finished second with 100 points, while Sidcup RFC (94 points) were third and Tunbridge Wells RFC II fourth with a score of 91.

The day’s golf was followed by a lunch and auction, which was presided over by Adger Brown and helped to generate the four-figure sum for Wooden Spoon.

The competition’s top four teams qualified for the Wooden Spoon Rugby Club Golf Challenge National Final, which will be held at Henley Golf Club on Wednesday 20th September and hosted by Graham Horner of our Oxford region.

As neither Sidcup or Tunbridge Wells could make the date, Lordswood RFC and Sittingbourne RUFC – who both finished with 91 points – will represent Kent in the final.
