Taunton Rotary Golf Charity Day at Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club
Thursday 15th September was a nice sunny day , we had 32 teams so 128 players who were all able to enjoy a round of golf starting at 9.00am and the last one going out at 14.30 . After the rain two days before , the course was in excellent condition and the green staff had prepared it very well .
Following the game everybody enjoyed a two course meal and there was a raffle with some excellent prizes , the first being a 42" TV provided by Taunton Rotary Club . This was won by Ray Anstice of Nailsea & Backwell Rotary Club who every year enter 3 teams into our Golf Day .
The team prize winners for the day were :
1st " Coomber Fire & Security " whose team included the Mens Captain at T & P John Snell with 92 points .
2nd " Zorro & Friends " led by Jack Matthews with 90 points
3rd " The Very Mixed Optimists " lead by Bob Lyon with 88 points ( 3rd on countback )
First prize were vouchers to the value of £75 per player , £50 for 2nd , £25 for 3rd to be spent in the Pro Shop and this stayed open after the event .
All in all a day enjoyed by everyone and a good result for the charities that we supported . The exact amount raised should be nearly £6K .
