v.d. Noort Trophy 2014

Dear Members,

Thirty players turned up for the v.d. Noort Trophy which was played on
Saturday 19 July 2014. This ladies championship with, the rather difficult,
strokeplay format (with hcp adjustment) had some fantastic scores. It was
especially a hard battle for everybody, as it we had tropical temperatures of
around 30 degrees or more. It was most unfortunate that due to the heat 3 ladies
had to stop in the second round.

The defending champion, Mary Gillies, set out to play her handicap and
which she did. With this great result she became again the winner of the v.d
Noort Trophy with a Nett 57. It was a pleasure to see two CAT II ladies playing
also a remarkable game. The runner up was Ann Wong with a great score of 59 Nett
and in third place Helma Nollen with a Nett 60. Congratulations and very well
done ladies.

Sixteen gentlemen turned up in support of the v.d. Noort Trophy. They
played in parallel a separate stableford competition. Again also here fantastic
scores were made. It seamed also here, that the heat did not bother the winner
Reno Harboe Sorensen, as he came in with a stunning 41 stbf. In second place
came Jos Hoogeveen with 35 stbf and in third place Flemming Pedersen with 34
stbf. Also here congratulations to the winners and very well done

Also on behalf on Cees v.d. Noort, our sponsor and friend, thank you all
for supporting this long standing ladies championship the v.d. Noort
