Chiltern Forest Golf Club have beaten local rivals Ellesborough in the Mail On Sunday Classic Foursomes.

The match was played on Saturday in summer-like conditions that warmed the hearts of Chiltern’s 2014 captain Paul Graves and his team.

Three of the matches were decided on the last hole, but Ellesborough’s Jim Stephenson, who had an excellent round, was blown away by Chiltern’s in-form five-handicapper Grant Cornock, who finished up three under par in a thrilling five and four win.

Chiltern’s vice captain Tom Wright was delighted by the club’s 4-1 victory even though he was the only Forest player not to win a match!

Tom’s day improved in the bar afterwards when he welcomed a VIP guest to Chiltern – the new PGA European Tour chairman, David Williams.

It was David’s second visit to the club, a course that he finds ‘challenging and rewarding, so long as you keep the ball in play!’
