Fourteen Old Penwithians teed off in the 2009 Old Penwithian Association Golf Championship held at West Cornwall Golf Club in June. The competition, the brain child of association secretary Andrew Coak, was open to all old boys of the former Penzance County/Humphry Davy Grammar School. The competition was played using the Stableford format and old boys representing school years from as early as 1946 turned out. The winner was Mike Hicks with an excellent score of 39 points. In second place was Frank Blewett on 35 on countback from Andrew Coak – Chris Roach came fourth, Colin Kelynack the most senior old boy present was not in the prizes, not even the booby prize which he won last year, which this year went to Clive Rowe. The best House went once again to Treneere. The competition was generously sponsored by Roger Dugdale of  ‘Penwithian Wholesalers’.

All who participated agreed that the competition should continue next year and the secretary hoped that next year’s championship would attract even more old boy golfers and was planning to hold them once again in early June 2010. Details would be announced in the association’s annual newsletter the New Penwithian which is distributed to all life members every December.
