The Welsh members of Bromborough Golf Club had revenge for the recent Six Nations Rugby defeat at the hands of the English by retaining the Home International golf trophy they won for the first time last year.

Defeating the English by a narrow margin made the victory even sweeter. The competition, an increasingly popular fixture at Bromborough, involved a total of 68 players representing the four UK nations.
The English were comforted by having the player with the best card on the day, Ray Young with a staggering 47 points. Ray Newnes, 42 points for Wales, got the silver medal and Mike McLoughlin, (Ireland), the bronze with 40 points.
Located in a mature part of the Leverhulme Estate at the heart of the Wirral Peninsula, Bromborough is renowned as a hidden gem of a Golf Course; "Wirral's Parkland Jewel ® ". For over 100 years golfers have been tackling the distinctive 18 holes that play between 6300 and 6600 yards depending on the tees used. Its quality can be evidenced by its selection to host the English Amateur Matchplay Championship in 2005, English Men's Seniors Championship 2003 and the Cheshire Matchplay in 2010.
