Stephen Schindler holed an albatross on the 12th

Abridge swept the board in the Men's team competitions at the AJGCS's Metropolitan Tournament at Dyrham Park Country Club.

The Essex club secured the Lawrence Fisher trophy for the combined ladies/men's net scores.

The highlight of the day was provided by Stephen Schindler of Dyrham Park. He holed his second shot on the par 5 12th, thus achieving the rare feat of an albatross on his way to a gross 75 which secured his second place for best men's gross. Abridge's Barry Green edged home with a score of 74.

Dyrham Park enjoyed a clean sweep in the ladies team trophies, with Laura Rael Brook producing the best gross score with a fine 81, beating Anna Suh of Coombe Hill into second place.

Dyrham Park were also victorious in the Sonny Feldman Trophy for the combined ladies/men's gross scores.

Mixed teams of eight men and four ladies from Abridge Golf Society, Dyrham Park, Potters Bar, Coombe Hill and Hartsbourne Golf Club competed in an event organised by the Association of Jewish Golf Clubs and Societies. In addition, Sussex Jewish Golf Society and WAGOS Jewish Golf Society competed for the men's trophies only.

The newly renovated course was praised by all the participants which, despite the perfect conditions, proved an exceptionally tough test, which was reflected in the generally high returns.

The Northern Metropolitan, which was scheduled to take play at Dunham Forest on June 9, was cancelled due to heavy rain.
