2016 Semi Final 2

Crondon Park v Colchester                               Three Rivers v Bentley GC

The Committee commiserates with Three Rivers and Colchester Golf Club who both put up valiant efforts in the Semi Finals, but ultimately lost out to Crondon Park and The Bentley. Also, significant kudos and Jubilee Cup spirit merits to the winner of the League phase who informed us of an accidental Rules infringement which resulted in them ceding the League and change at Semi Final position to Colchester. Absolutely the spirit we engender in the competition – a fierce, but friendly and honourable, competitive spirit.

Full details of both Semi Finals are on the website and shown below for completeness, with Crondon chalking up an 8 & 1 victory over Colchester, and Bentley defeating Three Rivers 5.5 & 3.5.

Very much worth noting that whether the high level score looks tight or not, it could very much have been a different result on the date. As spectators and officials on the day, what we saw was nominal dominance of early points gains, but both matches saw opponent swings during their rounds.

The “Road to the Final is below, and by the time of publication of Essex Golfer, the results of the actual Final Match will also be  up on the website – so please check at and specifically click into the Final match hosted at  

The teams showed excellent spirit as always, and some of the individuals were cpmpeting for places in the running for the Order of Merit.

The Jubilee Cup comprises clubs who would like to enter a team of 6 singles players and 3 pairs of 4BBB competitors (please check our competition entry rules: ) who will play initially four guaranteed League matches, before progressing to then knock-out qualifiers to become the Champion.  

Please send your entry form (can be found here  ) as per its instructions to me by end of October please.

Looking forward to seeing you all in 2017, and Good Luck to the two Finalists

Jubilee Cup

The Jubilee Cup Final was played at The Brentwood Golf Club on Sunday 25th September – and the end results was Crondon Park 7 points versus The Bentley’s 2. The Committee commiserates with Keith Clissold and his 2015 winners Bentley who could not secure a second running year as champions. Congratulations go to Andy Simmond’s Crondon team, long time runners in the play-offs these past few years, and at least they win to pole position.

The following text comes from the winning captain’s pen, Andy Simmonds:

On Sunday 25th September, 24 very nervous golfers teed  up for the 2016 Jubilee Cup Final held at Brentwood GC. The format is 6 singles matches for players of 11.5 and above played off scratch and 3 pairs matches for players between 16.5 and 24 playing 4 Ball Better Ball off 90% handicap difference. The pairs started from the 1st tee and the singles from the 10th tee.  

The match started tentatively for Crondon with all the matches very tight through the opening holes, in fact after 9 holes the overall match score was very evenly balanced.  

As the games got into their back 9 the match started to turn in Crondon’s favour with the singles matches leading the charge. The spectators started to congregate around the 7th green for the end of the singles matches giving them a view of what was happening on the 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th greens, although in the end no games made the 9th (last hole for the singles).

First to score a point was Tony Efreme winning 4 & 2 on the 7th, next in was Dean Allen calmly strolling down the 7th fairway with a 4 & 3 win in the bag. Attention then turned to the 5th green with Brian English, who looks so serious even when he is winning. Two balls were on the green and the last we had heard Brian was 1 up, but a couple of putts later they shook hands and we had another point, 3 points in the bag now. The last 2 singles were a way behind so attention turned to the pairs - taking the buggy to the other side of the course we found the first pair of Lewis Wootton and Chris Collen on the 16th tee 2 up and our second pair of Dennis (Grandad) Murphy and Ian Rattray going dormie 3 after 15 holes. Chris and Lewis soon followed suit by winning the 16th and were now dormie 2.

Calculators were now out and with 3 points secured and the pairs having a minimum of 1 point we needed another win to bring the trophy home. Again we congregated around the 5th Green to wait for Peter Ballard who was playing the Order of Merit leader from Bentley, the grin on his face said it all as he halved the hole for a 3 & 2 win and the Jubilee Cup was Crondons!

Back to the pairs and we saw Lewis, Chris, Dennis and Ian all walking in, with 2&1 and 3&2 wins respectively. That only left 2 singles and 1 pairs match on the course. Dave Cox was all square on his last hole and in pole position to win it but he sportingly shook hands with his opponent for an agreed half. Peter Green was on his 16th hole and also all square, once again they shook hands for an agreed half. With the score now at 7 - 1 we unfortunately suffered a defeat in the last pairs match, with Andy Heelis and Phil Rees going down 3&2 leaving the final score CRONDON PARK 7 BENTLEY 2.  

What a fantastic day for Crondon Park after being losing Semi Finalists for the previous 3 years it was finally their turn to bring home the Jubilee Cup.

To conclude, Andy also wishes to go on once again with thanks to the Committee of the competition for organising such a great competition! The spirit and sportsmanship from all teams Crondon have played has been fantastic, thanks also to runner up Keith and his team for a great final and we wish them all the best for next year.  This spirit is shown throughout the competition, and we regularly hear feedback from Jubilee captains and their players lauding the format and the competition overall.

Jubilee Cup 2016 Order of Merit Results

The teams showed excellent spirit as always, and some of the individuals were competing for final places in the competition Order of Merit.

Full list of all singles OOM is here  Hotly in contention at the final with a number of both Crondon and Bentley players competing to become the singles headliner. Second place in the singles OOM was purely down to hole difference, with both players having 5 winning points since the competition begin. However, Crondon’s Peter Ballard was pipped (by a 2 point hole difference) by Bentley’s John Bantick for runner-up place.  The winner was Crondon’s Brian English with a fully clean sheet in this year’s competition – 6 wins out of 6 matches.

Things were not quite so even for the Pairs player OOM standings:

Even getting through to the final Bentley’s Dave Murphy was not good enough for this prize, with four Crondon players above him in the table. And with some good scoring from Dennis Murphy and Ian Rattray, it was still six winning points out of six matches that provided the eventual OOM winner and runner up from Crondon Park.  Congratulations to Chris Collen who becomes the pairs runner up, and who was only beaten by four hole difference points by his team mate Lewis Wootton. Well done guys.

Looking forward to 2017 competition, by the time you read this we will have our full entrants for next year, and will be heading towards the Annual General Meeting and draw at Chelmsford Golf Club on Wednesday 23rd November. As you may know, the Jubilee Cup is open to ALL Essex clubs, and we seek to make the competition bigger and better every year – I am pleased to see some great new clubs entering the competition, such as Braintree Golf Club who has entered for the first time in 2017.  Sad news must be flagged in that we have also had a withdrawal from a great supporter of ours, Channels Golf Club, due to the circumstances at the club.

Our next update in Essex Golfer may just include the Drawn of the 2017 Leagues, so keep an eye out! Looking forward to seeing you all in 2017.

All the best
