Formby Golf Club have successfully defended the National Team Championship at Scarcroft, Yorkshire, sponsored by PowaKaddy.

PowaKaddy sponsored the 2011 English Champion Club tournament as part of its support of the English Golf Union.

The event welcomed champions from 32 English counties to Scarcroft Golf Club in Yorkshire, for the 36-hole scratch shootout that would decide the coveted Champion Club 2011. It was defending champions Formby that eventually took home the title for the second successive year, following a count-back over the teams from Dartford and Wike Ridge.

Tied for first with an aggregate of 424 (two-under par) in the all scores to count, three-man event, Lancashire representatives Formby were declared champions thanks to their superior second round tally of 210 against Dartford’s 212 and Wike Ridge’s 215.

Despite beginning the day in fifth place, five strokes behind Wike Ridge, Formby came powering through thanks to a classy course record-equalling 64 from James Bolton. In the process, they became just the third club to successfully defend the prestigious Champion Club title.
