Although the Seve Trophy is important in itself as one of the 4 individual major events, its main aim is to support a charity. That first year raised 4,500€, and last year over 3,200€ so every year a great effort from all concerned.

Since its inception in 2012 when it was inaugurated in response to the death of Seve Ballesteros (changed to the Lorca disaster fund in the same week) the charity has been chosen in response to situations that have involved a member of the society. This year it is in aid of a local cancer charity in Alhama (Asociacion Espanola contra el canceras) – a result of Maria’s battle with the disease.

Well done to Jim Laird who went clear of the pack with a great score of 43 points! All the chasing pack included the form players – Tony Andrews, Shaun Cairney, Peter Reeves and Pat Whitty.

A special mention to Mark Ambridge, who’s handicap is higher than just about everyone, but he aced the par 3 7th hole – well done Mark!

It looks like the final total raised for the charity will be over 4500 euros, so thanks to everyone concerned for a fantastic effort!

The prizes were reduced to just the divisional winners (and no nearest pins etc.) so more funds could go to the charity. Thanks to the golfers whose entry fees went straight into the pot, hole sponsors, raffle donors and everyone who parted with their money (not to forget all those who put many hours of their own time into organise and running the charity day).

Some even parted with their hair and their money – here Clover owner Chris is getting shorn by Nicky Rollett for the charity!

Next week is a 4 person team event, 2 scores on the par 3’s, 3 on the par 4’s, and all to count on the par 5’s.
