What a great year for Honeybrook Golf Club and Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP) Team Match competition!
Two of our three teams went undefeated and the third - while not scoring as well - fought galliantly against some great private club players. Two more GAP Team Match plaques will be hanging above the bar soon.
Our first team, Honeybrook 1, dominated its Division B foes, Woodstone, Silver Creek and West Chester, during the three week competition and finds itself in a playoff match this Saturday, May 10, against the Links Golf Club of Marlton, NJ. HB1 garnered the most points out of 64 Division B teams, earning the Top Seed for the Challenge match. Six of Honeybrook's best golfers head to the Garden State Saturday day as six Links players come to Honeybrook for the playoff match. The prize? the honor of moving up to the coveted GAP Team Match Division A for next year. Thank you to Team Captain Chris Terebesi for leading HB1 to victory!
Honeybrook 2 won its bracket as well - Division D section 9 - winning all three weeks against Llanerch, Hartefeld and Whitford. Team Captain Travis Good remarked on the great individual performances over the past three weeks, but said "the sum of the parts is better than the individual components" and pointed to a 27.5–26.5 squeaker win over Llanerch Country Club in week 2 as an example. HB2 now moves up to Division C for 2015
HB3, led by Lynn Stoltzfus, had a tougher year. After beating Coatesville in week 1, the Honeybrook team went up against the talented B teams of Conestoga Country Club and the Country Club of York. Although its nice to win, our players enjoyed the camaraderie and friendly competition from our adversaries, which makes the game of golf so precious to us all.
Congratulations to all the Honeybrook competitors!
