The 30th annual County Cup took place over the weekend with the Greens Folly team retaining the trophy for the 11th consecutive year with a 36.5-35.5 score. The Saturday and Sunday event was played at Greens Folly Golf Course and Halifax Country Club.

Each squad used its home course to its advantage with Greens Folly building a 21.5 to 14.5 lead on Saturday.

David Graham and Jimmy Clay, along with David Day posted the highest total number of points at three for Greens Folly on Saturday. Five Folly teams went on to post 2.5 points.

When competition began Sunday, Halifax Country Club — comfortable on its own greens — started to rally. D. Lewis and Kelly Chappell with Peter Gasperini and R. Harrell led the HCC team on Sunday logging the highest point totals at three each.

Though HCC would close the score by six points from Saturday, Greens Folly played well enough to hold on for the one-point victory.

HCC and Greens Folly would tie in the senior division with HCC keeping the title at their club. Tournament guidelines say if there is a tie the trophy remains with the previous year’s winner. HCC has held the senior division title for seven straight years.
