Diary Event

The Hudson Trophy is a 36 hole foursome stroke play inter club competition held every year at South Herts Golf Club. This was its 60th year with twenty clubs competing. It is an invitational where the four clubs with the highest score drop out for the following years competition. The team for each club consists of one professional and three amateurs.

The competition has a rich history closely aligned to the Ryder Cup, it originated when the American team were invited to practice at South Herts just after the war. One of their sponsors was Robert A Hudson a successful business man from Oregon who became a friend of the club. In 1959 he presented them with a silver casket to be played for by invited clubs.

Thorpe Hall pride themselves in having won it on three previous occasions. On two of those occasions their teams included a Southgate, the first was Ian followed many years later by Matt who wrote an article reminiscing about his experience and was published in this year’s programme.

This weekend Thorpe Hall were represented by Club Assistant pro Mark Talbot playing with Pat Bridge and Dan Capps playing with Peter Alabaster.

After the morning round Thorpe Hall were leading by two shots but were overtaken in the afternoon by the team from Old Fold Manor who won by three shots from Thorpe. It was an exciting afternoon because Thorpe were matched with Old Ford Manor so spectators could watch the competition for first and second place unfold.
