THE 12th annual charity golf day organised joining by the Rotary Clubs of Axminster and Lyme Regis was deemed a resounding success.
The event was held on Wednesday, May 10 at Lyme Regis Golf Club, with 100 competitors from all over Dorset, Devon and Somerset taking part.
The president of the Rotary Club of Lyme Regis, Les Baker, commented: “Thanks to our sponsors this event maintains its appeal. Without them it would not have been the success it is.
“This year we are donating half of the proceeds to two splendid charities, namely the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and the Devon Air Ambulance. The remainder will be distributed to other Lyme Regis and Axminster local charities and organisations.
“We sincerely appreciate the support of our main sponsor Axminster Recycling Shop and of the host of other companies, local organisations and people whose support through sponsorship, raffle prizes or silent auction prizes helped make this event the success it is.”
The format was Stableford, with 23 teams each of four golfers and excellent prizes awarded to those with the highest joint scores.
A team headed up by Lyme Regis Rotary stalwart Jim Moseley with Douglas Moseley, Neil and Sarah Hampton-Rumbold took first prize with 91 points.
Mr Baker added: “The Rotary Clubs of Lyme Regis and Axminster would like to thank the Lyme Regis Golf Club for the huge assistance they gave us in running the event on their excellent golf course.
“As usual they did a great job for us, many of those who played have come year after year and remarked, yet again, on how well the course was prepared and what a great reception they had been given.”
