Beaumond House benefited handsomely at the Seniors-organised hole-in-one day in early October. Over 70 Members paid a tenner each to enter the competition, which featured a new Kia Stonic as the special prize for an ace at the 15th (not won) - courtesy of Grantham dealer Victor Wood.
Adding raffle takings and other money previously collected at the Club to the day’s proceeds pushed the final figure over £2600. Former Seniors’ Captain and Secretary Peter Smith once more played a pivotal role in the day’s success.
The cheque was presented by Seniors’ Captain Keith Martin. He also handed a cheque for £1050 to the Newark-based Childrens’ Bereavement Centre, his personal charity for the year. Seniors have been contributing to this fund since the start of the year, not least via fines for losing in inter-Club matches!
The benign conditions led to good scoring, with countback needed to determine the first four prizes. The winner, with 39 points, was Peter Trafford. Second, also on 39, was Paul Ackroyd. Third went to Howard Wibberley on 38pts, with Pat Roche in fourth, also on 38. Nearest-the-pin prizes went to James Gilmour, Micky Paton and Pat Roche.
