Clevedon Golf Club held a fundraising day for Clevedon Cottage Hospital.

The sun shone as Clevedon Golf Club members played in the annual fundraiser for the Clevedon Cottage Hospital.

The winner of the trophy was Mark Seabroook, who put in a consistent performance to amass a total of 40 points. Barry Osborne scored 23 points on the front nine, but tailed off to finish runner-up on countback.

George Cawse, returning from his role as Ali Balcombe’s caddie at the Open at St Andrews, took the honours in Division 1, with Jamie Osment topping Division 3. The club will be presenting a cheque to the League of Friends of the Hospital once the total is calculated.

Results - Division 1: George Cawse 39 pts (countback); Steve Buckland 39 (countback); Ben Scammell 39. Division 2: Mark Seabrook 40 (countback); Barry Osbourne 40; Dave Sansum 39 points (countback). Division 3: Jamie Osment 39 pts; Steve Goss 38; Chris Lawton 38.

Merriel Horlers’ season of success continued with a win in the Stevenson Shield, rewarded by a two-shot reduction in her handicap.

The players compete against the scorecard to win or lose holes, and Merriel ended beating the course by five holes. Ladies’ captain Elaine Morgan was runner-up with a score of +3.

Results - Division 1: Merriel Horler +5; Debbie Quinn-Hall +1 (countback); Sarah Martin +1. Division 2: Elaine Morgan +3; Sandra Sharp -1; Caroline Fairhurst -3. Division 3: Tracy Buckland -1; Vicki Sach -2; Liz Jarvis -3.

There was a tight finish to the midweek competition, with three players tied for the lead with a nett score of 69. They had to be separated by countback over the back nine holes, and Gareth Watkins beat Stephen McNulty into second place by just one shot. Two shots back was Daniel Hayward in third place.

Results: Gareth Watkins 69; Stephen McNulty 69; Daniel Hayward 69.

Clevedon’s senior members invited guests to compete in the annual invitation day pairs competition, and Alan Wignall with partner Ivor Monelle from the Isle of Wedmore claimed the Colin Maskell Cup.

They just managed to hold off a challenge from Jack Harris and his guest from Tall Pines Roger Scarrett, with a better score on the back nine holes.

Results: Alan Wignall and Ivor Monelle 45 pts; Jack Harris and Roger Scarrett 45; Will Rowlinson and Richard Boulding 44.
