Lincolnshire Lay Taverners charity gold day in Louth

The Lincolnshire Lady Taverners held the seventh annual charity golf day recently at Kenwick Park Golf Club.

Twenty seven teams took part and thanks to the sponsorship of Bluefin Insurance and Westgate Motors of Grimsby, this event raised more than £4,000.

The Lincolnshire Lady Taveners took the opportunity to ask their honorary Lincolnshire President, Barbara Dickson, to present a minibus to Phil Greenwood of KIDS STRUT of Lincoln.

KIDS STRUT caters for youngsters with both physical and mental difficulties aged eight to 18, in addition to supporting their families.

The team called Besoms and Bosoms, Penny Buckle, Joan Fairbank, Pam Hayward and Dave Borman played really well and won the AM AM competition with a magnificent 98 points.

The Calendar Girls, Maria Brown, Lesley Walmsley, Carol Morrell and Allison Cook came second with 96.

Carl Pickard, Joby Barton, Mick Horner and Ian Dickinson, called the Louth Wick, were third with 92, one point ahead of Pimms No 4 alias Paul and Cheryl Gilliatt playing with Martin and Jean Sizer.

Val Booth, Rob McBain, Jenny Kennedy and John Ashton won the nearest the pin prizes.

The Lady Taverners have just celebrated 25 years of fundraising to support their aim of giving young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance.

Warm October sunshine greeted the men as they played a medal round. Sean Howsam scored an excellent 76 - 9 = 67 to win division one.

A countback on 70 decided Howard Fytche to be the runner-up ahead of Mark Ringland (5), Sam Done (3) and Pete Wilyman (9).

Sam Done (3) with his round of 73 recorded the best gross of the day.

Peter Guiliiatt also had a very good day winning division two with a round of 83 - 16 = 67. John Beverley (13) came second with a net 68 and John Moody (21) was third with a net 70.

The ladies played the senior men in an annual match and were narrowly defeated by a margin of 10½ v 9½. The very enjoyable competition followed by a fish and chips lunch raised £80 for the Captains’ charities.
