After taking a break last year from the original concept of the Wyvern Trophy, we changed the event to become our Chairman's Invitation Day Each of the Owners or Chairman of our affiliated Club were invited to enter a team of four to compete in a Team Bowmaker competition, and we were so grateful to the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club for allowing us to run a Shotgun Start on the day, The response was fantastic as 23 teams took part. With all of the tees taken we needed to allocate more than one team on some of the holes.
The day was supported by two of our sponsors, Butcombe Brewery provided hospitality at the Half Way House, with Brittany Ferries supplying prizes for Nearest the Pin competitions on all of the Par 3 holes.
There was something very special on offer on the 9th a Hole in One would win a team prize of complimentary entry into the annual Brittany Golf Tour in October - a total prize value of nearly £800.
It is not too late to take advantage of the offer by booking your favourite 4 ball onto the trip. Full details are shown on the link for the Hole in One Prize, or by clicking on the Brittany Ferries logo.
We also managed to raise some funds to support Special Projects in the County by offering 4 ball vouchers generously donated by some of our Clubs, with support also coming from Cumberwell Park, The Point at Polzeath and East Devon. Thanks to the generosity of the players, we were able to raise over £700 on the day.
The day was very much enjoyed by all who took part, and we hope that the support shown will continue in the future.
