A series of competitions and social events brought Middleton Hall Golf Club’s Silver Jubilee celebrations to an end.
A nine-hole Stableford competition was followed by a Celebration Waltz competition for teams of four players. The competition was made keener as Thurlow Nunn sponsored the par three holes with prizes ranging from a new Vauxhall car, golf breaks and sets of golf clubs for anyone who managed a hole in one. But after a recent spate of aces, no one managed to record one this time.
Club president Malcolm Garrod presented prizes to stableford winner Danny Overton (24 points) and waltz winners Matt Phillips, Ben Burrows, Perry O’Conner and Ant Hawkins who scored 98 points.
Kieran Jeavons won a par five competition on countback to complete a weekend of action.
Meanwhile, the club seniors saw teams of three compete for the Dugmore Trophy. John O’Neil, Ian Woodward and Pam Ballinger were winners on 115 points, ahead of Mike Freedman, Deric Prior and Mike Anstey 111 and Tony Read, Bob Gamble and Jim Hudson 110.
λ Heacham Manor Golf Club staged their first Ladies Invitational tournament with each member of the team inviting two guests to play, with 51 players taking part.
Angela Bissett (Heacham Manor) and partners Jan Nixon (Searles) and Patricia Nixon (Ely City) were the eventual winners on 87 points, ahead of Joan Gill (Heacham Manor), Marie Long (Middleton) and Jane Purdy (King’s Lynn), also with 87 points, with Anne Wells (Heacham Manor), Judith O’Brien (Middleton) and Johanne Pywell (Searles) third on 85 points.
Ladies captain Rachel Hodgkinson said: “It was fantastic to see so many ladies playing in our first invitational day at Heacham Manor.”
