The Hawksworth Trophy

The Hawksworth Trophy is one of the major regional competitions throughout the season which, together, constitute the Yorkshire Order of Merit. It attracts a top class field and has been a prominent feature in The Bradford Golf Club calendar for 40 years. 

The prestigious Hawksworth Trophy, a 36-hole strokeplay competition for the leading amateur golfers throughout the north of England, was held at The Bradford Golf Club on Saturday 27th April

Following a narrow defeat in the sudden death play off in the 2012 Hawksworth Trophy, Nick Marsh of Huddersfield Golf Club returned to Bradford to claim the title in 2013.

Played under testing conditions Marsh shot 70, 68 for a four under total 138 to win the Trophy by three shots. In second place was last years winner Nigel Colbeck now representing Cleckheaton with 70, 71 for 141. In third place was Bradley Hudson from Cookridge Hall on 143, with Matthew Atter from Woodhall Hills in fourth also on 143. In fifth place was Martin Brown from Pike Hills on 144.

The prize for best morning round went to J. D. Hussain from Hollins Hall with a brilliant 68, while the prize for the best gross in the afternoon went to Bradford's own Ben Mountain after shooting 69. As a reflection of how the conditions played their part CSS for round 1 was 74 while in the afternoon it was 73.

As usual there was excellent support and assistance offered by Bradford's own members and many excellent comments were received regarding the quality of the course, the clubhouse facilities and house staff.

Well done to everyone who participated and many thanks to all the members and staff who helped the day be the success it was.

The Club Head Professional Andrew Hall commented "The Hawksworth Trophy proved once again to be a challenging competition for the region's top players and we very much look forward to hosting the event again in 2014"
