The 2011 Fairhaven Trophies

The annual Fairhaven Trophies and Fairhaven Nations Cup, a 72-hole Open International
Scratch Championship, for boys and girls aged 18 or under, to be held at Fairhaven Golf
Club on 29th April to 1st May 2011, has attracted a high class field.
The quality of players entered this year is a testament to the prestige the championship is
now held within the world of junior golf since it was inaugurated in 2007. The draw for this
years championship was balloted at 0.6, and includes over 100 players with a scratch or
better handicap.
Among the list of the many international players who are playing is Nathan Kimsey, 17yrs,
form Woodhall Spa GC, who last week won the Peter McEvoy Trophy, and Greg Payne,
17yrs, Chobham GC, who finished runner up. The draw includes most of the England
under ‘18’ and ‘16’ boys teams, who will ‘tee-up’ alongside national players from Finland,
Scotland, Wales, Switzerland and Germany.
Among the favourites for the girls championship, will be Lancashire players, Brogan
Townend, 16yrs, Pleasington Golf Club who recently won the Leveret Trophy at Formby
Ladies in great style by 5 shots, and Bethany Garton, 17yrs, Royal Lytham & St Annes
Golf Club.
Club Secretary, Bob Thompson, commented “I am again thankful to the English Golf
Union and the English Women’s Golf Association for their continued support, which
sees the country’s top junior players playing. This year I am delighted to have the
support of the Scottish Golf Union and German Golf Federation who have entered
their top national junior players. We will see the elite juniors from the Europe
competing this year’s championship”
“The championship will provide an excellent opportunity for players to gain top class
competitive experience, as well as developing their course management skills and
testament to that is last years winner, Rhys Pugh, Vale of Glamorgan, and 3rd in last
weeks Peter McEvoy Trophy, who this year will be playing in the Lytham Trophy”
He further commented “With the championship being played on the same date and in
the same format as the Lytham Trophy, at neighbouring Royal Lytham & St Annes
GC, it creates a festival of world class amateur golf in Lytham St Annes, giving
competitors, spectators, selectors and national team managers the opportunity to see
the elite of amateur golf”
