On Saturday 14th June, Haverhill Golf Club hosted the St Nicholas Hospice Care Charity Golf Day. In all 30 teams took part in the team of 4 events, played off full handicap with the best two scores from 4 to count.

As part of the day there was a Par 3 challenge on all the Par 3s with prizes for a hole in one that included a brand new Vauxhall Corsa, a golf holiday in Portugal, a weekend break and a set of Taylor Made golf clubs.

It was aces high for Haverhill Member Jim Day who scored a hole in one on the par 3, 129 yard  8th hole using a 7 iron, to claim his prize of a set of Taylor Made Golf Clubs. Jim also won another prize for nearest the pin in 2 on the 5th and Bryan Smy won nearest the pin in 2 on the 14th.

In the team event, Paul Chapman Plumbing & Heating -Martin Turner, Len Sanders, Chris Iron and Paul Chapman, were the clear winners with 99pts. In second place with 94pts were ‘The King Edwards’ - Spencer Tatum, Eamonn Bareham, Gerry Scott & Mich Calmet and in 3rd place with 93pts were ‘Nice Drive – Whoooooop!’ Peter McLennan, Mark Firman, Trevor Broomfield and Roger Hartley.

Winning the ‘non competition’ handicap team prize with 89pts were ‘Team June’ - Mike Brooks, Mike Taylor, Roger Springall and Andy Harling. In the putting competition, sponsored by Peasgood & Skeates, Haverhill Member Roger Hartley won a SkyCaddie.

The first prize in the raffle, a 32” Panasonic Smart TV, was donated by Chapman & Son and was won by Paul Chapman, and as he had already won the golf competition, he generously put the television up for auction which was eventually sold to Haverhill Member John Kennedy for £280. MJ Pipe & Sons Ltd also donated an auction item, a GDHA New World Cooker which was sold for £300.
