The weekend involved a medal round for both ladies and men at Swaffham Golf Club on the Saturday followed by a “sixes” fun competition on the Sunday.

There were some good scores in the medal with Steph Ashton winning the ladies competition with a nett 72 followed by Amanda Bloomfield with a 73 and Julie Waters with a 76.

Pride of place went to Ann Ewer winning the scratch category with a gross 86.

The men’s results saw Jamie Eggleton winning with a nett 66 closely followed by club president Bill Neill with 67 and Jay Penfold on the same score but losing on count back.

The Men’s scratch prize went to Nic Cains with an excellent gross score of 68 – and he also impressed all with his sartorial elegance.

The weather on Sunday threatened rain. However, it proved to be a reasonable day although a brisk wind presented the golfers with some tricky problems.

A variety of people won prizes for nearest the pin, straightest and longest drives for men and women but there was strong competition for the sixes team prizes.

In the event the mixed/ladies team winners were Julie Proctor, Brenda Neill, Bill Neill and Brian Gordon with a score of 113.

At one stage it looked like the captain might win some of his own money, but it was not to be and the men’s team prize went to Trevor Barnard, Brian Pealing, Bob Martin and Alan Brough with a very creditable score of 124.

At the end all retired to the clubhouse for sustenance and the prize giving.

The men’s captain, Gordon Halewood, presented the prizes and took the opportunity to present a cheque for £2,222 to Mike Taylor the CEO and founder of The Bridge For Heroes. This money was raised on the Men’s Captain’s Charity Day.
