Club Captain hits the ground running!!!

Congratulations to Graham Popple who has set the record for a round of golf at Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club.  As part of his celebration of his birthday, Graham raced around the Martello course in 66 mins & 27 seconds with a score of 88.  He was aided by caddie Charlie Snelgrove who also ran the course, Course Marshal Chris Pearson, and James Douglas-Hamilton acting as time keeper.  Graham has really set the example for rapid play and ready golf – well done Graham.  The event has raised over £100 for the Captain’s Charity.

Club Captain, Graham Popple, preparing for his rapid round.

 

Faithful caddie, Charlie Snelgrove – dressed for the part!!!

Inaugural Bill Bannister Trophy

On a warm, sunny morning Richard Bannister took to the tee to fire off the first shot in the inaugural running of the Bill Bannister Trophy. Although, interrupted by a thunder storm the event was a great success with 80 players taking part in the Greensome Stableford competition.

Bill was a constant figure around the club for many years and was well known around the town through his Estate Agency business. It was a pleasure seeing his wife Sue, son Richard and grandson at the Club.

The Mens event was won by David Bloom and Peter Howarth with a very good score of 42 points and the Ladies event was won by Rose Stollery and Pat Sharp with 39 points.
