The Mixed Pairs Greensomes event was planned to help raise monies for both Senior Captain Bill Bond’s charity, Somerset Mind, and Lady Captain Sarah Uzzell’s charity, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
The conditions were very challenging with heavy rain for most of the morning. Quite a few players came off the course early but 19 out of the 34 pairs completed the competition, regardless of the very soggy conditions.
Despite the weather there were some good scores:
1st Caroline Hunter & Joe Jowett - 36pts
2nd John Woodhouse & Lesley Hawkins - 34pts
3rd John Thomas & Connie Stolworthy - 33pts
Nearest the pins were won by Robin Ewbank, Keith Lancey, Caroline Hunter and Cheryl Stacey
Representatives from both charities, Debbie Birtwisle from Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and David Fields, from Somerset Mind, attended the lunch and gave interesting talks outlining the focus of their charities. They thanked all at Long Sutton Golf Club who helped raise funds to raise awareness of the work they do.
Both Captains thanked the players for their generous support and the management team for facilitating the event. Proceeds from the day, which totalled £761, will be shared between the two charities.
