A successful mixed open was held at Long Ashton Golf Club, with 132 players taking part.

A fantastic day was had by all 132 players in the Long Ashton Golf Club mixed open.

The conditions were challenging as the ball ran long and at times, bounced into the most unwelcome of places. Some couples, playing a greensomes format, still managed some impressive scores, with the top prize of 82 gross (on countback) going to Tim Worrell and Carolyn Park of The Bristol, beating Tracey and Martin Austin of Woodlake Park on countback.

John Yuill of Newmarket did well, being the only player who managed to drive to within 125cm of the 13th, as well as taking the best visiting Stableford prize with his partner Jane Readman.

Long Ashton was well represented taking prizes in the best nett and the best Stableford sections, including a second place for ladies’ and seniors’ captains Sue and David Whitaker.

The best visitors’ team Stableford went to Susan Reid and Sid Pratt of Costwold Edge with 36 points and best visitors’ team gross to Martin Caulfield (Long Ashton) and Nicola Hawkes of Shirehampton.

Lots of fun was had at the halfway house with special 125th anniversary cupcakes on offer as well as a special free prize draw for a meal for two provided by Ben Hiles Wealth Management, who sponsored the day.

The catering team provided a lovely roast for the hungry players and club manager Nick Jones created a warm and welcoming ambiance in the clubhouse.

As always, many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped to ensure this day was such a great success and especially to Annette Murfin for running the registration desk, Bob Brooke for doing all the scoring and most importantly, Carole Brooke who organised the whole event.

There are just a few spaces left in the ladies’ bowmaker on September 13 for those who fancy giving Long Ashton a try. Details on our website https://www.longashtongolfclub.co.uk/events/opens
