MARJORIE COULSON TROPHY – Ramsdale Park (Review)
On Thursday 22nd August 2013, 13 golfers competed for the MARJORIE COLSON TROPHY. Jackie Colson kindly said a few words about why this Trophy would be so pleasing to her Mother Marjorie who was a keen sportswoman who lost sight in one eye. The Colson Osborne family donated three stunning medals as a keepsake of the day. Peter Colson Osborne says it all really “Well what a day today at Ramsdale Park GC. Thanks to Sue and Graeme for organising the day. Jackie Colson-Osborne presented the Marjorie Colson Trophy to Brian ‘Barmy’ Parsons as well as a Gold Medal, sleeve of Titleist Pro V1 balls and BGL pin marker. She felt very honoured to present her Mothers trophy to Barmy and the medals to the others. Well done all today and thank you Lesley for making my day so much fun. As I have said at previous DGA events ‘another day one did not want to end”.
We welcomed Lindsay Carruthers from Nottingham to her first DGA event – we met at Mottram Hall recently in an ISPS Handa event. In addition two juniors joined Sue out on BGL’s Academy Course at Ramsdale Park Golf Centre, and Callum Owen (aged 15) was presented with some balls as a prize in recognition of beating Sue out on the course with ice creams enjoyed before getting in some putting practice while we waited for the main competition to complete.
A game of two halves. The front 9 was enjoyable and fairly straightforward but the back 9 much more testing and all the players were in as the rain deluge arrived at the 19th. We were superbly looked after by Shaun and Ben in terms of catering and Ash Dilks from BGL was an absolute star. The results of this BGL Race to Burhill competition, in 4th place just missing out on qualification but in reserve was Tex Williamson (32points); and the qualifiers were 3rd place Stephen Wardale (33points); 2nd place Pete Hardy (35points); and the winner of course Brian ‘Barmy’ Parsons with 40 points.

Look out for the lovely par-3 6th hole, which requires you to navigate your way across a natural water hazard, devilishly positioned to punish badly hit shots. Opened 1992, this par 71 layout is an exceptional parkland design which makes perfect use of the natural landscape, utilised to create many of the course’s golfing challenges.
