GOLF: Local golf star Alfie Edgson claims top prize at Norfolk County Golf Union Handicap Order of Merit
A Wisbech Grammar School pupil is celebrating after winning a top local golf prize.
Alfie Edgson, who is a member of the Heacham Manor Golf Club, took the blue ribbon in the Norfolk County Golf Union Handicap Order of Merit.
He hit at net 70 at Eaton, net 69 at King’s Lynn and net 63 at Royal Norwich to claim the crown.
In the men’s handicap section of the Order of Merit, he came third with an impressive 210 points and in August the youngster also won the Norfolk County Golf Union Boys U12 Scratch Champion at Wensum Valley. He’ll go on to play in the Norfolk Men’s Handicap Match Play Championship next month.
His successes cap a fine season which also saw him get his handicap down to 17 from 26.
PGA professional, Ray Stocker, who has coached Alfie for the last eight years, said: “Alfie has not only become a very good golfer but is turning into a very nice young man.”
