A very wet West Kent Golf Day raises more than £6,000
THE Wooden Spoon Kent West Kent Golf Day went ahead on Friday 4 June at Redlibbets Golf Club with social distancing measures in place. Despite the weather, it was a successful day, raising a fantastic amount of more than £6,200 which will go to local projects.
Review by regional volunteer, Peter Johnston
What an awful day we had weather-wise, virtually rained all day. So unfair when the weather beforehand was so good and has been ever since!
Regardless, virtually all 31 4–ball teams completed their rounds with those going out early and later in the day scoring best.
It was a 4–ball Stableford competition with full handicap allowance and the best two scores to count on each hole.
Results as follows:- 1st place with 91 points White Hart Hopefuls, 2nd with 89 Libbets Misfits Plus One, 3rd with 86 Cawston Specialist Roofing. There were three teams with 85 points. 4th on countback The Ramblers, 5th South East Swingers & 6th 4B4.
Despite the miserable day everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and liked the course. Because everyone was so cold and wet nobody stayed long so the silent auction was a little disappointing, but to be expected in the circumstances. Even so, it looks like we’ll have raised just over £6,200.00 which is a fantastic result.
Big thanks must go to Adger Brown our usual MC/Auctioneer who along with our chairman Richard Russ made sure that all teams started at the allocated tee time. Big thanks too for Joan Wells our photographer for taking all the great photos in the terrible conditions.
Next year we plan to be back at Redlibbets Golf Club on Friday 10th June.
