Winners of the Pairs Better Ball Stableford

Usually played in May but postponed due to Covid-19, playing conditions at Brean were ideal. The course and the weather were perfect although it may have been too hot for one or two. All the players managed to achieve scores in the 30’s whilst the two winning pairs were able to achieve scores of 44 and 41.
Congratulations to Beryl Richards and Linda Edmondson the home team. They achieved the top score of 44. Diane achieved pars on seven holes and a birdie on the 10th whilst Linda played three pars, two of those being the par 5’s. It must have been quite intimidating for the pair playing alongside them.
Well done to Diane Ramsay and Linda Wright from Wells coming in second with 41 points. They achieved 3 pars between them on the back nine.
There was a tussle for third. Jill Paul and Marlene Ewens from Taunton and Pickeridge, and Fay Galley alongside Lesley Roebuck from Bath both coming in with 39 points. Jill and Marlene just tipped the balance in their favour by scoring 2 more points on the last three holes. Well done to both pairs.
Interesting that Jill and Marlene played alongside the winners and Fay and Lesley alongside the pair that came second!
The course was tricky, with quite a few potential water hazards but all commented on the excellent condition of the course.
The Clubhouse itself is very impressive and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful.
Trevor, the Club Chairman, acted as starter. Ben and his assistant provided a welcoming cup of tea or coffee and ensured the smooth running of the catering at the end of play in the Kingfisher Suite which overlooks most of the course.
Beverley, one of the Brean Senior Ladies, ran the Golf Ball Raffle achieving a splendid £69. She later walked with Yvette and myself around the course so we were able to see for ourselves what beautiful condition the course was in and enjoy the views.
Josh in the Pro Shop checked out the score cards as the players came in, kept the leader board updated and provided a printout of the results at the end.
Andrew March ably assisted by his team provided us with a well organised and enjoyable day. Thank you to all of them.
Brean is definitely a venue to consider for future events.
