PETER Rulton’s Captain’s Day at Herefordshire GC in aid of St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford was a well supported event with more than 130 members taking part in the Texas Scramble format.

The total raised was £907.

A real highlight was the “Charity Chip” where the competition was strong to hit the winning shot from the edge of the putting green to the flag down below.

This alone raised £155, with Stuart Gwynne and Ross Moore donating a large amount of this in their quest for the perfect chip.

Results: Men’s Winning Team - Chris Bamford, Martin Lovelock, Aaron Price and Jack Cannan 55.1, 2 Dave Falconer, Colin Farr, Paul Fisher and Emyr Saer 55.2, 3 Mark Bloxham, Rob Morgan, John Devereux and James Millin 57.3; Mixed/Ladies Winning Team - Andrew Simpson, Peter Allman, Janie Allman and Shaw Kendall 55.5, Nearest the Pin 5th - Karen Darby; nearest the pin 15th - Emyr Saer; nearest the pin in 2, 18th - John the hole.

Peter would like to extend his thanks to all those that helped on the day.

He had several volunteers and special thanks go to John von Anrep and Simon Swancott who helped set-up the marquee, Neil Walters and his team on the BBQ and Dorothy Johnson who handed out and compiled the scores from start to finish.

Special mention also goes to one particular fourball, namely Roy Allen, Brian Matthews, Bobby Goodfellow and Brian Welling who, with a combined age of 335, played on the day and were the last group to come in.
