Now to the championships with the club champion for 2019 being Jamie Andrews with a gross score of 232, 3 strokes in front of Phil Bowden, who apparently had a fantastic front 9 to put the pressure on Emu, however he prevailed and took the win, well done Emu. B grade went to Matt Groves with 283 gross with Tom Dare a further 5 strokes behind, it was a battle of who could outlast the other. C grade went to Rick Paff with 301 gross from Bert Newman on 319, Rick played to consistently to allow anyone else a look in winning by the biggest margin of 18 strokes.
