Going a “fair-way” to enjoying a fundraising day of sport were competitors during the Isle of Axholme Lions 21st annual charity golf day.

Spokesman Terry Condliff said: “During what was a poor week weather wise we were delighted to find that Friday June 24 was bright and sunny offering the prospect of a good day’s golf at Hirst Priory, Crowle. It also provided a break from all the goings on with the European election results.

“The players were delighted not only at the weather but the superb playing conditions at Hirst Priory and congratulations must go to Alan York and his team for their hard work in achieving that.

“Once again the Lions are grateful to all our sponsors who year after year support us to enable us to put on this event.

“We were delighted to see that over 40 players entered the competition and we were able to make a considerable boost to our charity funds from which we disperse help near and far to needy causes.

“We used the Stableford system of scoring with a maximum of 28 for the men and 36 for the ladies. It was a hard fought contest.”

The results were as follows: Ladies - 1st Rima Levers 28, 2nd Jill Hallgate 25, 3rd Pat Terry 21, longest drive Pat Terry: Men - 1st Rob Little, 2nd Richard Bostock 39 (best back nine score), 3rd Rick Fuller 39, longest drive Steve Green.
