Every year Leasowe Golf Club host the Mockbegger Competition. The format comprises of both individual and team competitions, and teams from the Society of Liverpool Golf Clubs are invited to take part. The first Mockbegger took place in 1991 to celebrate the Leasowe’s centenary year, it has since become an extremely competitive and well supported competition.
This year 16 teams took part, each team comprising of four players; a Captain or past Captain, a player with a handicap of 11 or under, a player with a handicap of 12 or over, and a Junior or Intermediate aged up to 30 years.
Gathurst’s team this year was Alex Priestley (Junior Captain 2021), Doug Pickering (Junior Organiser), Ben Johnson (Captain 2021), and Ian Thompson (Chair of Greens).
Although we have had some success in the individual categories in the past, this is the first time a team from Gathurst has won the main trophy!
We would like to extend our thanks to Leasowe Golf Club for a fantastic day, we look forward to defending the trophy next year.
