Derbyshire: Nett Team Championship

Drabble Cup success for Bakewell GC

DERBYSHIRE: Wednesday May 26th

Bakewell’s Peter Freeman led his club to glory at the Derbyshire Team Handicap Championships (Drabble Cup) at a blustery Burton on Trent GC.

Peter’s nett 70 meant he finished three strokes clear of a trio of entrants and his score made all the difference with Pastures GC also three back and third-placed Alfreton a further shot adrift in third.

One of the players three back from the Bakewell winner was home club star James Weeks (-1). He posted the best gross score – a one over par 72.

The Burton-on-Trent golfer will be hoping to take that form into this Sunday’s 36-hole Derbyshire County Championship at Mickleover.
