Clevedon Golf Club’s Captain’s Charity event was hit by thunder and lightning last week.

Early starters avoided the worst of the conditions, before a storm forced players from the course and saw the competition reduced to 15 holes.

Linda and Paul Reynolds won, supported by Katie Burchfield and Mike Hanley, with 85 points.

And Sue Bamford won several of the Ladies Spot prizes, with money raised on the day going to the Penny Brohn Trust.

The seniors' open bowmaker was also suspended due to lightning, but the Ladies Walker Treen Stableford was won by Debbie Quinn-Hall with 43 points, well ahead of Marian Crewe.

Joe Swift dominated the Midweek competition with 40 points, as Louie Doe pipped Tom Hayden to second place on countback.
