With a halfway table groaning with drinks, fresh fruit and chocolate to boost the players’ energy and manned by Colin above the 10th green, he was a welcome sight for competitors, however well they were playing.

At the evening presentation, prizes were awarded to: third place men’s team of David Cowler and Sam Searle on 54 stableford points, and runners-up Doug Goodall and Tony Stoyle on 55.

The winning team, with an excellent seven over par 57 points, were Bob Welsman and Stuart Coles, who dovetailed well. Nice to see Bob in the winner’s enclosure again if only to hear his winner’s speech!

Winners of the ladies’ team prize were ladies’ captain Sheila Faulkner and playing partner Marie Timms on an equally impressive 57 points.

Runners-up were mother and daughter Sally Fox and Sue Billinghurst on 54.

More funds were collected for the captain’s charity when the MC for the evening, David Pepperell, hosted a mini auction of four ball golf vouchers and golfing memorabilia, raising several hundred pounds.

Well done, to him and all the winners on what was a great day of golf.
