THE PAST week at Broadway Golf Club began with club captain Warren McDivitt’s annual charity day and, with the weather set fair, members came in their droves to support.

In the morning, a men’s four-ball better ball contest took place and, after a shotgun start, the race was on to achieve the highest Stableford score.

With two different pin positions on holes six and nine and one of those positions being the most difficult on the course, McDivitt had given teams the challenge of making both scores count.

However, victorious father and son pairing Stuart and Ollie Storrer were unfazed as they powered in with a spectacular 47 points to win the captain’s first prize.

Paul Emsley and Kevin Spencer achieved an excellent second position on countback.

The afternoon took the same format but was a mixed competition and players faced the same challenges as the morning teams.

Mother and son pairing June and Steve Griffin found incredible form and took victory with a superb 45 points, leaving Bev and Mark Howard as runners-up on countback.

A raffle took place during the day and a magnificent £896 was added to the captain’s charity fund for the County Air Ambulance.

The ladies were then out in force to compete in their Stableford and Mercia Castle competition which took place over two days.

More than 50 ladies took part and Saturday winner Lin Andrew achieved a superb first place with 38 points and Sue Barker was second with 34.

Tuesday’s winner Hazel Balding came in with an outstanding 42 points and Annabelle Carter was a close second with an excellent 41.

Jenny Buchan and Wendy Hicks scored a commendable 38 points to take third and fourth positions. The best two cards in the Silver and Bronze Divisions will now be sent to Gloucestershire County for consideration for the Mercia Castle Trophy.
