City Glass Menís Foursomes Final at Houldsworth Golf Club

Dukinfield complete their hat-trick in style

HOULDSWORTH Golf Club were excellent hosts as they staged the final of one of the top Inter Club competitions in the country with a course in fine condition backed by good off-course facilities and service.

The club, as the winners of the MDGA City Glass Menís Foursomes in 2017 were the hosts for the day as Dukinfield, twice previous winners of the coveted trophy, and Bramall Park battled it out in a final that had over 90 clubs in the original entry for the competition.

Dukinfield, who were backed with great support from their club on and off the course, quickly established their intent with wins from John Harrop and Colin McWiggan, Anthony and Ian Child and Graham Barrett and Mark Turner.

The trophies to both teams were presented by Alliance Vice President Ian Brooks who congratulated both teams on reaching the final and representatives from both clubs paid tribute to the Alliance organisation and excellent hosting by Houldsworth.

As trophy holder Dukinfield will host the 2019 final.
