Matt Mulooly, Wayne Adams, Aaron Smith, Craig Balchin, Sam     Preston, Richard Bond and Jamie Griffiths. CHAMPIONS OF THE MAIL ON   SUNDAY   UK NATIONAL COMPETITION

The Mail on Sunday National Golf Competition is an annual event which is played throughout the year. 3,200 teams entered in a knockout format with the victorious last four teams going forward to the competition finals held at El Rompido Golf Resort, Andalucia, Spain.


Brynhill ( Barry ) Golf Club entered the competition and after nine knockout rounds qualified, together with three other teams from across the UK. Brynhill was the only team from Wales to qualify.


On the 22nd November the team members together with supporters flew from Cardiff Airport to El Rompido.


The Brynhill team – Wayne Adams, Matt Mullooly, Richard Bond, Aaron Smith, Jamie Griffiths, Sam Preston and Craig Balchin –  tee’d off early and played their semi-final match against Normanby Hall Golf Club from Lincolnshire.  Brynhill won 3-2 with a nail biting playoff brilliantly won by Aaron on the 19th hole.


The final match, dubbed a Celtic final, saw Brynhill playing against Muthill Golf Club, from Scotland. It was a hard fought match with Brynhill having to give away many shots to their opposition. Richard secured the win on the 18th green.


This was a fantastic achievement for Team Brynhill and they celebrated in true Welsh style.


The team would like to express their thanks to fellow Club members, sponsors and families for their generosity and support. They would also like to thank the Mail on Sunday for the way in which the whole event was organised from the first match of the year through to the finals played in sunny Spain. The gala dinner on finals night was a fitting celebration to conclude

the competition.


Well done Team Brynhill, the way you have played golf this year has been outstanding and you deserve all the accolades bestowed upon you. The Committee and Club members of Brynhill are very proud of you.
