Trophy proceeds go to a fine cause

REPRESENTATIVES from Campden Home Nursing visited Broadway Golf Club to receive funds raised from the recent Martyn Freeman Trophy competition.

The charity, which offers hospice care at home, was chosen by the Freeman family to benefit from the Broadway GC event held in memory of the club’s dear professional who passed away in 2015.

Charity treasurer Vanessa Christie-Brown was delighted to receive a cheque for £430 as a contribution towards the wonderful hospice care provided on a daily basis.

Trophy winners Steve Griffin and Irene Hawkes, who is also chairman of Campden Home Nursing, are pictured alongside club captain Bernard Donoghue and ladies’ captain Maggie McDivitt, who presented the cheque on behalf of the club.

THIRTY-FOUR Broadway ladies competed in their Golf Foundation Stableford which began on a cloudy note but, as the morning progressed, the sun burnt through to provide sweltering conditions.

Enjoying the heat, Sheila Lawson headed up the Silver Division with an outstanding 39 points to win the esteemed Golf Foundation Brooch.

Ladies’ captain McDivitt earned a close second with an excellent 38 points ahead of Sonia Ward who achieved third with 32.

Barb Buggin carded a fine 39 points to clinch top place in Bronze Division, leaving Barbara Crew to take a creditable second with 37 points and ladies’ vice-captain Irene Hawkes third with 36.

JUNIORS were busy competing in their Swain & Spoofers Cup at the weekend. The competition is a combination of the Mark Swain Cup, donated to the junior section by Ted Swain in 1983 in memory of his son Mark who had been one of Broadway’s talented junior members and the Spoofers Cup donated in 1990 by members of the Friday afternoon ‘spoofers fiddle’.

The Mark Swain Cup, a gross event, was won by Scott Davis with a tremendous 78 and the Spoofers Cup for the best nett was won by James Sutherland playing off 48 handicap with a superb nett score of 69.

Kyle Wright took a deserved second, also with 69 but edged out on countback, leaving Louis Rickett and Jackson Wojahn-Parker to take the next two positions with 70.
