Christmas Scramble Open pulls in the punters

Evesham Editorial 6th Dec, 2016   0

IT WAS a crisp and frosty morning as Broadway Golf Club opened its doors to host the annual Christmas Scramble Open competition.

Thirty teams of four, representing 25 clubs from across the region, arrived to play and all were looking forward to enjoying their full breakfast whilst waiting to hear their allocated tee for their 10.30am shotgun start.

With winter greens in operation, it was difficult to see who would take the greatest advantage of the conditions and it was the visiting teams who soon showed top form as the first two positions went to players from Bewdley Pines Golf Club.

Andy Instone, Paul Birch, Mark Churns and Andrew Beaman scored an outstanding 60.2 to take first place ahead of runners-up Stuart Harris, Terry and John Hill and Mark Davis with 61.2.

Third were Kenilworth’s Charles Leggitt, Lesley Chester, Mark Newbold and Sam Mannion with 61.5, leaving home players Dereck Buttler and Jeff Doran and their team-mates John Hall (Cirencester) and Mike Jordan (Lilley Brook) to take fourth with 62.3.

All won fabulous hampers packed with festive treats for the Christmas season.
