42 YEAR WAIT OVER FOR ALEXANDRA GC
The Brasch Cup was played over the month of September this year, with 22 clubs from around Otago competing for the cup.
Waitoa Park were the early leaders from week one with the help of Anthony Wilson and Les Weir playing under their handicaps.
Alexandra GC played the second Saturday in the month and with Dave Fraser, Brian Bruce, Brent Wilson and Dai Johns all playing under their handicaps this helped the Alexandra Men take the lead with two weekends left to play.
Maniototo were the next to post some good scores with Tony Carson and Matt Weir both playing under, but the Maniototo Men could not take the lead away from Alexandra.
With the weather not playing its part on the final Saturday through parts of Otago it was the Alexandra team of Dave, Brian, Brent, Dai, Malcolm Moore and Keith Mackie taking the Silverware winning the Brasch Cup for only the second time (1977) in the 84 year history of the Cup. Maniototo finished second and Waitoa Park Third.
The Country Day Cup for the leading Individual was also on the line for the month. Cromwell GC member Brendon Scott ran hot the first weekend but only winning in the end by the slimmest of margins from Lawrence’s Trevor Duncan with Twelve Oaks Dave Romeril in third.
