FORMER Lyme Regis Golf Club captain Lee Caddy was surprised with a classic golf day tournament to celebrate his 60th birthday.
Organised by partner Lynnette Ravenscroft and his golfing buddies, the event saw and family and friends turn out to watch Lee tee off at the start of a fun packed day.
The winner of the Stableford competion was Colin Baker with 42 points. He picked up a £60 golf voucher, Champagne and the Caddy Classic Trophy.
Lee came third and his good friend Graham Paterson presented him with his prize.
Also in the running was Bob Taylor in second place, Matt Brotherton for longest drive and Dave Clark for nearest the hole.
Lots of other fun prizes were awarded as well as a free raffle as a small thank you for all the charity raffles the golfers, family and friends had supported during Lee’s year as club captain; they couldn’t have been more generous, helping Lee raise more than £20,000 for the Fortuneswell Cancer Unit at Dorchester Hospital.
The highlight to the day, along with the glorious weather and barbecue, was Lee’s first hug in 18 months with his son Jonathan.
Lynnette commented: “It was just lovely to have a near normal day after the last year of lockdowns. Lee would just like to say a big thank to everyone for making his 60th so special.”
