In-house Ryder Cup for Southwell’s keen golfers raises £250 for NHS Charities Together
Although this year’s Ryder Cup was cancelled due to covid-19, the spirit of the tournament continued at Southwell Golf Club as it hosted its own version of the event.
More than 50 members, playing for either the captain’s or vice-captain’s teams took part in Pairs’ Betterball matches on Saturday, which was followed by singles matches on Sunday.
At the end of day one, the captain’s team held a commanding lead but the vice-captain’s players rallied on Sunday and almost snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
However, the captain’s team, led by Iain McFadyen (club captain) Chris Gibson (lady captain) and John Bentley (seniors’ captain) secured a narrow victory.
The club donated more than £250 of its entry fees to NHS Charities Together.
McFadyen said he was delighted with the response of members.
