A fundraising competition was held at Clevedon Golf Club with Billy Blackall emerging as the winner.

Clevedon Golf Club played their annual fundraising competition in support of the town’s hospital, with Billy Blackall coming out on top with a good score of 42 Stableford points.

This also took him to the top of Division 2, but it was a much more closely contested affair in the top division where three players all finished on a total of 39.

Michael Crook emerged as the winner on countback from Mike Sach and Tom Hayden. Josh Loveridge enjoyed a four-point margin of victory over Alan Wild in the third division, also with a score of 39.

The ladies’ section played for the Stevenson Shield where Sandra Hill took top spot. This is a rarely played form of golf, where the players take on the course by recording a score against the par of each hole to win or lose.

Sandra scored better than par on four occasions, recording a score of four up to win Division 2. Other divisional winners were Sally Anderson (two up) and Evelyn Childs (all square)

The performance of the week came in the midweek Stableford competition as Terry Wynne ran away from the field with a score of 43 points.

In last week’s report it was stated that Sue Tasker went through to represent the club in the Grass Toots competition, but in fact it was Juliet Hagley who qualified.

Results - Hospital Cup - Division 1: Michael Crook 39 pts (countback); Mike Sach 39; Tom Hayden 39. Division 2: Billy Blackall 42; Paul Madge 39; Chris Patterson 38. Division 3: Josh Loveridge 39; Alan Wild 35; Alfie Hocking 33.
