In near perfect weather conditions and a golf course to match, the annual Medics v Teachers fundraiser was held on Bank Holiday Monday. Around 80 golfers turned out to compete in a Betterball Stableford format. Some excellent golf was witnessed on the receptive greens, followed by exceptional putting from a number of golfers.
The opening four were Club Captain Dr John Harvey with Dr Doug Skehan who took on Club Professional Tony Westwood and Haydn Snow. The Medics held off a back 9 charge to win 40 pts to 38 pts.
However, the overall result of the day went to the Teachers, who came out eventual winners for the third year in a row, by 11 matches to 9, with a cumulative score of 757 pts to 748 pts. The outstanding performance of the day was 49 pts from Bob Thompson playing for the Medics, witnessd by playing partner Adie Grant.
A huge thank you must go to the organisers Steve Middleton and Haydn Snow who helped raise an amazing £415 towards course improvements.
