Moor Allerton won the top prize at the Seniors Trophy at Dyrham Park Country Club.

The Leeds club claimed the Coombe Hill Trophy after edging out Bonnyton by one shot.

Moor Allerton finished with a gross aggregate of four out of six scores, with the count totalling 327.

Lol Green won the Hartsbourne Trophy for best individual gross score. The Abridge member went round in 79, beating Seymour Borlant of Moor Allerton on a count back.

The Dyrham Park Trophy for the best individual net score was won by Tom Trafford of Lee Park with a score of 70.

Organised by the Association of Jewish Golf Clubs & Societies, the competition is open to all affiliated clubs and societies entering teams of six male golfers who have reached the age of 55.

In these times of vigorous discussion surrounding the strength of Jewish golf, the association welcomed Wessex Jewish Golf Society to the competition.

Dyrham presented the course in excellent condition with many of the competitors struggling with the speed of the greens, and the relatively high scores reflected the difficulty.

David Harris, secretary of the Association of Jewish Golf Clubs & Societies, said: "The competitive atmosphere afforded the opportunity for friendships forged over decades competing in Jewish golf tournaments to be renewed and strengthened."
