Flamborough Head’s father-and-son pairing Jon and Dan Artley claimed victory in the Marshall Shoes Trophy event at Bridlington Golf Club.

The club hosted the fifth annual Marshall Shoes-sponsored event, which is a junior/ adult fourball betterball stableford, and once again the day was a resounding success.

The weather was very pleasant and all the competitors thoroughly enjoyed the format of the day, which pairs up a junior player with an adult.

In total 22 pairs competed for the trophy and there was some excellent scores returned.

The eventual winners were the Artleys from Flamborough Head Golf Club, who won with an exceptional score of 52 points.

The event was the idea of Bridlington shoe shop owner David Marshall and was aimed to encourage junior golfers.

David played with his son Bradley and they nearly got their hands on their own trophy, finishing runners-up with 50 points.

The inaugural event was restricted to Bridlington Golf Club members, but it has since been opened up to a encourage golfers from other local courses, Flamborough Head Golf Club boosting the figures this year and there were also pairs from Scarborough North Cliff Golf Club.

The hope is the event will continue to grow in popularity.

During the day the Marshall family kindly hosted the halfway house during the event, feeding everyone on the way round.

At the prize presentation Anthony Howarth (Director of Golf at Bridlington Golf Club) thanked David, Dawn, Adele and Bradley Marshall for their generosity during the day.

Bradley Marshall was invited to present all the prizes to the winners.

The raffle during the day raised an amazing amount of over £900. This will be donated to Kids N Cancer.
