Saunders wins stableford

Liam Moakes 19th Jun, 2018

FORTY-SIX Broadway Golf Club ladies competed in the England Golf Trust stableford in which Christine Saunders scored an outstanding 40 points to win the Silver Division.

Elaine Hickin achieved second place with 39 points ahead of Barbara Bate in third with 35.

Ladies vice-captain Irene Hawkes took the Bronze Division by storm to top the pile with 39 points, with Esther Pettitt a deserved second with 38 and Trish Gould third with 37.

One of the highlights of the golfing year at Broadway is the Martyn Freeman Trophy – a competition introduced in 2016 in memory of the club’s wonderful professional who had sadly passed away the previous year.

The individual stableford competition was played at the weekend and Martyn would have been delighted to see the tremendous turnout of 110 members from all playing sections.

It had been a damp start to the day but as the breeze picked up the course quickly dried and provided superb playing conditions for some impressive scoring.

Steve Griffin won the prestigious trophy with an excellent 41 points and Charlie Nettell and Ben Ross battled it out for the next two positions with 40 points, with Nettell second on countback.

Irene Hawkes became the ladies’ winner with a fabulous 34 points, ahead of Francis Friend in second with 33 and Barb Buggin third with 32.

Max Carter sealed victory in the junior event with an outstanding 50 points, leaving Ambrose Eaves second with an admirable 46 and Jackson Wohahn-Parker third with 41.

As well as being ladies’ winner on the day, Hawkes is also chair of Campden Area Home Nursing which is the charity the Freeman family had chosen to benefit from all proceeds.

Donations are still coming in and a grand total will be announced shortly.
