Brookmans Park Golf Club has paid tribute to one of its senior members and former club captains.

Trevor Goodman joined the Golf Club Road Outfit in 2004 and was the club captain during the 2017/18 season.

He was active in many areas of the club, especially when playing against other clubs in Hertfordshire.

A spokesman said: “He was known and respected throughout the club and his death leaves a great sadness among his many close friends.

“He has fought disease long and hard over the past few years, and his determination to keep fighting regardless of the adversity has been a real inspiration to everyone at Brookmans Park.

“The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the club go with his wife and family.”

The news dampened the hard work on the square itself, where the second part of the club’s major drainage project was quickly and successfully completed.

Earlier this year, the club installed over 13,000 meters of high-tech drainage on the fairways to make them future proof against warnings of wetter winters in the future.

The same specialist drainage company returned in early August to install its unique drainage system for golf greens on the six greens that the club believed were most at risk from heavier and more frequent rainfall.

Each green was completed in a day and, as at the beginning of the year, there was a willing pool of members who helped with the work to ensure that the budgeted time frame and cost were met.

Meanwhile, current Welwyn Garden City superstar Tom Lewis has taken a giant step towards saving his PGA tour map in Idaho.

At the Albertsons Boise Open, part of the Korn Ferry Tour, and one of three tournaments that determine whether he will stay on the tour, he came in 16th.

He must finish in the top 25 after the three events and after rounds 68, 65 and 68 he carded a 70 to finish 13 under par.

The second of the three competitions is the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship this weekend, which will be played on the Scarlet Course at Ohio State University.
