St Alban’s sunshine smiled upon the 30th anniversary celebrations of the BIGGA National Championship sponsored by Charterhouse and Kubota as Chris Lamb claimed victory at Verulam Golf Club.
Thirty years after BIGGA hosted its first national championship for greenkeepers, the association returned to Verulam, made famous as the ‘Home of the Ryder Cup’ due to Samuel Ryder, who was a member at the club when he came up with the concept of the trans-Atlantic competition.
Overnight leader Chris, of Trump International Golf Scotland, shot a 4-under par total across the 36-hole competition to claim the BIGGA Challenge Trophy.
The +4 handicapper’s round included seven birdies and with four holes to play he sat one shot behind runner-up Tom Workman, of Minchinhamption.
BIGGA Chief Executive Jim Croxton thanked the team at Verulam for inviting the association back to the venue, and for being excellent hosts.
The BIGGA National Championship was made possible once again thanks to the generous sponsorship of Charterhouse and Kubota.
The BIGGA National Championship 2018 will be held at Gullane Golf Club, East Lothian on 8-9 October 2018.
