Leading into this year’s Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire Golf Challenge it was hoped the clouds would break and bring out the sunshine on the tremendous Melbourne course at Brocket Hall, for another spectacular day of golf in the MercedesTrophy Final pre-qualifier. Mercedes-Benz customers from across Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas, came together to compete on a glorious day for golf in a Stableford competition to qualify for one of the finest prizes in amateur golf, and the start of a journey which saw three Hertfordshire golfers last year go all the way to St Andrews and compete in the UK final. An early start was met with a glorious and superbly prepared course, making for some equally impressive scoring and the group ending the day at the head of the field coming from across the handicap range.
