Derby triumph gets men’s B team off to a superb start

Evesham Editorial 4th Apr, 2018 Updated: 4th Apr, 2018   0

BROADWAY Golf Club’s men’s 2018 B team fixtures began with victory against local rivals Stratford.

Each team presented 16 players which included both clubs’ captains and professionals. The weather was mostly fine but, after torrential rain earlier, it was a little wet underfoot.

Playing away from home, the Broadway boys rose to the challenge with each of the Betterball Matchplay contests being hard-fought.

B team captain Andy Basford was thrilled with the support he was given by his team-mates and the impressive 4.5-3.5 victory was the perfect start to his season.

ON THE same day, Broadway Golf Club’s ladies took to the course to complete the final round of their Winter League competition, with each team having their sights set on the top spot of the 2017/18 league table.

There was a cool breeze to contend with and the threat of showers in the mix too but ladies battled on regardless, determined to put in their best performance in the 16-hole Betterball contest.

The results were close on the day with ladies’ vice-captain Irene Hawkes and her partner Louise Folkes sealing lead position with a superb 34 points, ahead of Angela Sollis and Diana Chambers who were a worthy second with 33.

Dawn Cannon and Debbie Donoghue recorded a healthy 30 points to secure third, leaving Pat Righton and Andi Stedman fourth on countback.

Ladies now eagerly await the final positioning in the league table as final scores are calculated, with the ultimate victors being presented with their awards at the ladies spring dinner later this month.
