Charity was the winner at Bourne Rotary’s golf day
Travelling from as far away as Keighley, Dewsbury, Mablethorpe, Louth and Leicester, 56 players took part in the event at the Toft Hotel golf course.
A total of £1,800 was raised for charity allowing Bourne Rotary to donate £1,350 to LIVES/First Responders which is its chosen charity. The remainder will be distributed to local charities supported by the club.
Organiser Barry Streets told us: “It was a very successful and worthwhile event which we hope to be able to continue in future years. We do acknowledge the importance of the support which we receive from local sponsors such as The Larkfleet Group, without whom the charitable work which we in Rotary carry out would not be possible”.
The golf day format was a four ball Betterball Stableford (full handicap) for gents, ladies or mixed pairs, with prizes for first, second and third places. There were also prizes for nearest the pin and longest drive on selected holes.
First prize went to Andy Briggs and John Ogden on 49 points who each won a £50 voucher.
Lew West and Stuart Booker took second spot on 47 points and a scooped £30 voucher each while Sally Burton and our own Dick Robinson took third place on 46 points (count back) and took away a £20 voucher each.
The best visiting pair was David Brailsford (Sandilands) and Jim Needley (Louth).
Nearest the pin were Louise Bradley on the 3rd hole and for the gents Max Baker on the 10th. Helen Roscoe hit the longest drive for the ladies on the 12th hole. Robert Grogan achieved the longest yardage for the gents from the tee on the 17th hole.
Congratulations on a great day and we hope you can do it all again next year.
