Long wins Heacham green jacket

Have your say

Heacham Manor members competed for their very own green jacket on Sunday, August 2.

Donated by member Rob Dicks last year, the jacket is competed for annually with the winner’s names embodied on it every year.

The weather was sunny with a light wind, and with the course in excellent condition, good scores were expected in the stableford format competition.

As the 34-strong field returned, the first 14 players all shot 36 stableford points or better. The eventual top four were very close with a countback for third and fourth on 40 points.

The winner who was presented with the green jacket was Ricky Long (pictured) on 42 points.

Other results after countback: 4th place, Paul Cribb; 3rd, last year’s winner and mens captain Aaron Daly; 2nd with 41 points Jordan Cribb.
