Two Clevedon Golf Club members have been selected for a county assessment day at Bath.

TWO of Clevedon Golf Clubs most talented players, Andy Ferris and Jamie Tompkins, have been selected to take part in the county assessment day on March 18 at Bath Golf Club.

Andy was a stalwart of the county second team in 2014, and will be hoping to press his claim for advancement into the first team squad. Jamie is making a step up from the junior ranks, having represented the Under-18s last year.

Missing on the day will be Clevedons’ Ali Balcombe, currently on a golfing scholarship in America. The county selectors are monitoring his results from the States and he remains very much in their plans for the coming season.

A damp and misty start to the day did not deter the Clevedon members in their bowmaker competition.

Among the early starters, the team of Louis Doe, Nick Giggs, Paul Haslett and Andy Robbins posted a challenging score of 97 points. As the day progressed, the conditions, and the scoring improved and they were eventually overhauled.

Martyn Denham, Dene Ferris Jack Harris and Rick Smith came out on top with a score of 99 points. Just behind on 98 were Julian Beale, Andy Dixey, Howard Jones and Dave Sansum.

Sally Anderson, who has only recently joined the club, stormed to overall victory in the ladies’ Stableford competition. Playing off a handicap of 17 in difficult conditions, she carded an impressive 38 points, four clear of her nearest rivals.

Divisional results - Division 1: Sally Anderson 38 pts; Sandra Jones 34. Division 2: Sarah Martin 34; Sue Liddeatt 31. Division 3: Hilda Shields 34; Liz Jarvis 29.
