Once Again Andy has organised a Golf Day in aid of the EWBG. This year was the same format as last year with local business professionals taking Andy and Martyn (his guide) on over 18 holes stableford. The weather held up great and the course was in stunning condition with some evil pin positions worked out by Andy, the Normanton Club Pro and Head Greenkeeper!!!!

Andy once again played well scoring 34 points off the white tees, managing to beat almost 80 of the 100 business professionals taking him on. Everyone he beat had to pay a £10 fine for the pleasure of losing!!!! This was a relief as Andy had only 2 points after 3 holes

The day had just about everything with the eventual winner Adrian Allen who plays off a 3 Handicap shooting an amazing Gross 69 for 42 stableford points. What is even more amazing is his round consisted of:

A chip in Eagle 2 at the 5th Hole

Hit a Tree when heading OOB on the 7th which deflected his ball into the fairway for him to achieve a par

Hit a railway sleeper in a ditch on the 8th which rebounded to the centre of the fairway where he made birdie AND…………………….

A HOLE IN ONE on the 10th!!!!!!!!!

It was just like playing against Billy I had no chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best news is with Barclays matching funding of £3k then EWBG have benefited from an amazing £11265 even before allowing for extra funds via Gift Aid
