The Second Annual Battle of the Brits Charity Fundraiser Golf Tournament took place on the immaculate grounds of the Jersey Meadow Golf Course on June 8. Both sides were tuned up for this event; being the Second Annual, the tournament this year was the foundation of a tradition of links warfare between the LBC car clubs of Houston. The event was organized by the very capable Vernon Jones.
Fifteen participants took place in this year’s tournament. The competition was highlighted by a rare hole-in-one on the 169 yard long 11th hole by the organizer, Vernon Jones. The Texas scramble format of the tournament ensured everyone was competitive and that all participants had a great time on the links.
In the end, it was the team from Abingdon that prevailed for the second year in a row. The MG-B team came up with the lowest score. In addition to his hole-in-one, Vernon Jones also collected the trophy for closest to the pin. The tournament collected $200 to be donated to the HMGCC charity of choice, Isaiah 117 House of Montgomery & Walker Counties.
Until next year, the coveted Claret Mug will remain with the Marque of Friendship, MG. And make sure you don’t miss this event the next time The Tradition Continues!
