Axminster and Lyme Rotarians go clubbing

Golfers get in the swing to help support the air ambulances

AXMINSTER and Lyme Regis Rotary Clubs are on course to raise around �4,500 from their annual golf tournament.

The charity event attracted 36 teams of four who were treated to a bacon butty and coffee on arrival.

The stableford format meant the best two scores counted and the winning total of 94 points reflected the excellent weather.

Axminster Power Tools, one of the event sponsors, took the trophy. Lead by Bernie Styles, the team consisted of Alan Jones, Michael Trimble and Barrie Castle.

“David Everett and his ground staff also prepared an immaculate course that was enjoyed by all who took part even if their golf did not always do it justice.”
