New trophy in memory of golf club campaigner

Tuesday, 23rd March 2010.

Haverhill Golf Club's annual presentation evening was held on Saturday, March 13, where all the winners from the 2009/2010 season gathered to collect their prizes.

On this occasion a new trophy, the Bob Hutchinson Cup, was donated by Trisha Hutchinson and her mother Eileen, who were special guests for the evening.

The new trophy was in memory of Eileen's husband, Bob, who was the first headmaster of Chalkstone Middle School in Haverhill.

Although Bob and Eileen were members at Saffron Walden for over 35 years, Bob campaigned for a golf course in Haverhill.

Together with Mr Johnson, a local surveyor, he sat in on the first planning applications for Haverhill Golf Course.

As his daughter commented: "My father would have been filled with pride and admiration today for what Haverhill has achieved.

"More especially he would be immensely honoured to congratulate and applaud another golfer’s success through the presentation of the Bob Hutchinson Cup."

The trophy was awarded to Haverhill junior Harvey Bavester, as the midweek medal final winner.

The ladies section had their presentation evening on Thursday, March 18, hosted by past lady captain Doreen Darbey and lady captain Sally Price.

It was a great night of celebration for the 2009/2010 season, with Catie Heathfield winning lady golfer of the year. Details of all the winners and runners up for both events can be found on the golf club's website www.club-noticeboard.co.uk/haverhill.
