Big scramble for prizes in Broadway event

BROADWAY Golf Club opened its doors to members and visitors from across the county for its annual Christmas Scramble.

Some 120 eager competitors representing 21 clubs embarked upon their 18-hole challenge. All took their drives and then selected the best of the four shots to play forward.

The person whose drive was chosen then dropped out for the next shot, with the format repeated until the ball was down the hole.

John Nixon, Richard Frost, Simon Tully and Kevin Connor from Glen Gorse GC in Leicestershire made the most of the superb course conditions to bring in a remarkable 58 nett and achieve a clear first place.

Three of Broadway’s teams were among the prize-winners including runners-up Phil Bennett, Neville Jelfs and father and son Bernie and Duncan Beale who scored an impressive 64.4.

Mark Dufty, Paul Miller, Phil Adey and Malcolm Pratt were third with a nett 64.5, ahead of fourth-placed Bernard and Debbie Donoghue and team-mates Jan and Jim Titley (64.7).
