Boatman’s Trophy

Boatman’s Trophy

This honor board event is a Mixed Foursome event held annually. The Boatman Trophy is named after ex-Captain Bruce Auld. Bruce worked in the maritime marine hence the name of the trophy.

Bruce was a very strong person with firm ideas and loved Northbridge. After he passed away his widow Sarah would represent the family at the qualifying round, to award prizes. She would then return on the final day and present the Trophy to the winning couple. Sarah passed away in 2014 but left a generous bequest to the Club to allow the trophy to be perpetual.

Sarah and Bruce had their ashes spread on the 12th hole to continue to have a presence at Northbridge. In 2015 Narelle Moulton, Bruce’s second cousin, traveled from Kempsey to represent the family and present the trophy after the final.
