Golf Day 2018

Blue skies and sunshine greeted the 13 teams that took part in the Golf Day last Thursday 13th September. Each team consisted of 4 players with prizes for team and individual high scores, nearest the pin on the 12th hole, nearest the pin in two shots on the 4th hole and longest drive on the 17th.

The day started at 10 in the morning with a full English breakfast in the clubhouse at The Martello Course at Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club and ended back at The Goldstar Ground around 5 o’clock for presentations and buffet.

On the course itself, most people walked round but one or two people did use the trolley cart. We’ll keep it top secret as to who that was!

The event brought in a little short of £1,000 to the club and thanks have to go to Mark Herron and Chris Daynes for all the work they put into organizing the event.

Listed below you will see all 13 teams but the trophy winners were as follows: (no prizes dear readers for explaining where one team got their name from!) 

Team Winners 1st place: Clip and Climb


Team Winners 2nd place: GMA

Team Winners 3rd place: CockWombles

Individual Winner: Sam Reed


Nearest the Pin on the 12th: Ash Pickles

Nearest the pin in 2 shots on the 4th: John O'Leary


Longest Drive: Mel Pipe

There was no prize for best-dressed team but an unofficial award must go to Team Jim Sheridan.

Let’s hope we get the same great level of support again next year and a big thanks to everyone who took part in a thoroughly enjoyable out on a fabulous golf course in beautiful Felixstowe.
