Competition to find Top Dogs at Holme Hall Golf Club
Holme Hall Golf Club held the final of its Top Dog competition in fairly benign conditions.
The five two balls who had beat captain Barry Bradshaw and professional Richard McKiernan in match play over the summer competed to be Top Dogs in a Better Ball Stableford.
And it was Nigel Dent and Mike Burgin who now have the bragging rights for 2012.
They returned a score of 41 points, which was four clear of their nearest rivals.

Fourth place went to Roger Gamwell and Tony Glew with 41 points, again on a count-back, ahead of fifth placed duo Ian Hebblewhite and Mick Ellis.
On Sunday it was the turn of both the ladies and men in a mixed Am/Am Stableford – one lady and one man to count at each hole, with all four counting at the ninth and 18th.
