Charity Golf Days at BGC
Bedford Hospital Charity Golf Day - 7th June
BGC hosted the Bedford Hospital Charity golf day for the 17th time last week, with a strong representation from members. The course was in magnificent condition, and the Chairman of the charity, Debbie Inskip, thanked the club and all whom attended in order to support the event.
As to the results, all teams were under par for the day, and only 3 points separated the top 5 teams.
Last year's winners, comprising of Clive Haywood, John Simpson, Peter Wilson and Neil Tabraham (aka The Defenders) came a very close 3rd; having scored 86 points, they were only beaten on a countback of the last 6 holes.
Pipping them to second place were the team 'All Roads lead to Sintra', comprising Richard Caunt, Kevin Dunbar, Gary Watson and Nigel Milford.
However, continuing a trend whereby the incumbent Captain steers home the winning side, the 'Prosecco Four' of Jim & Frances Godfrey with John & Sue Cribb, took top honours and the trophy with a magnificent 89 points. This captaincy thing clearly doesn't weigh too heavily on Jim's shoulders!
And the individual spot prizes also saw BGC Members showing their skills as:
Longest Drive at the 8th was by David Owen
Nearest the Line at 12 was by Neil Tabraham
and Nearest the Pin at 15 was by Peter Wilson
All the participants enjoyed a two course meal afterwards in the Biddenham Suite, and Nick Willis even came along to run the auction - all in aid of the Bedford Hospital Charity.
