It was a pleasure coming to Stowmarket, finally, following two postponed attempts and it felt very fitting to conclude the 2021 series at the venue, it was great to once again meet you, Adrian, Kenton and the rest of the team.

The support and organisation prior and during the event were much appreciated and helped ensure these competitions ran smoothly for England Golf, in what were times with some Covid measures and restrictions still in place, and others very recently removed.

Equally, I recognise the outstanding work of the greenkeeping team in preparing a well presented gold course for these back-to-back events, in what has been a very challenging year for golf course maintenance due to various lockdowns and then filled tee sheets which we have experienced. I personally thought the course looked fantastic and it has received numerous compliments from those that played since the tournaments.

As mentioned above, I think all the Championship team at England Gold were very pleased to eventually visit Stowmarket after Covid related postponements, and I hope that many of those who played in either of the big fields over the two tournament days will consider visiting Stowmarket again sometime soon.
