Tradition has it that there is a 12 hole Foursomes competition on Boxing Day where each player “enters” by bringing a wrapped present ( to a value of under £5) which is placed on the prize table and the winners get first pick of the prizes. Choosing a prize can be hazardous but if you want a bottle they are not too hard to recognise!
The event has increased in popularity in recent years and a bumper 19 teams entered in what were really very passable weather conditions. It was all a very close run thing with first and second only being decided on a last 3 holes count back. They were;-
1st Martin & David Biddle 24pts
2nd John Pease & Jayne Brenton 24 pts
It was noticeable how many of the participants stayed after the prizegiving and enjoyed good festive season company.
