Seniors Rider Cup Competition

For the third successive year the Nottinghamshire team has won the ‘Rider’ Cup. This three day competition, held over 2 weeks in November is between two 16 man teams of Alfreton Golf Club senior players. This is the sixth year of the annually played team event.

Matches consisted of foursomes, fourballs and a final day of singles. This year the Notts team went into the third day with a commanding 7 point lead only for the Derbyshire team to attempt the miracle at Medinah and fall just one point short.

Nottingham eventually won 24.5 to 23.5.

The event, always played in great spirit, is part of the active social side of the Golf Club’s seniors section.
