CAPTAINS CUP

The Cypriot Golf Society held their fourth event of the year, the Captains Cup, on Thursday 13th June 2024 at Durham park Golf Club. An impressive 65 members and 3 guests participated, once again showing the popularity of this event and this year’s Captain Steve Chrysostomou.

 Dyrham Park Golf Club is one of the best local golf courses in North London, and this was the 10th consecutive year that the Captains Cup has been held there. The format of the competition was 36 holes stableford, with lunch in-between the 2 rounds, followed by dinner in the evening. Buggies were provided for 1 round only for each 4 ball, with the golfers walking one of the rounds, providing a bit more exercise for this 36-hole event than in previous years.

The weather conditions made scoring more challenging than usual, cloudy and cool in the morning, and windy with some rain in the later afternoon.

Winner of the morning round with an impressive score of 40 points, was George Polycarpou, leading Peter Sandamas on 35 points by 5 points! George was able to hold his afternoon round together shooting 31 points and a total winning score of 71 points, beating Evo Evagora on 69 points by 2 shots.
