Brasteds Breeze to Victory as Norwich Businesses Raise Money for The Big C
Following on from the success of last year, Cleverdicks Hair Salon and Coffee shop in Norwich returned to Costessey Park Golf Club for their 2012 Charity Golf Day, raising money for The Big C Charity. Organised by Golf Days UK, the emphasis was on having fun for all standards of golfers in a relaxed environment. Businesses from Norwich entered teams and battled it out throughout the afternoon. Despite the wet conditions, players remained upbeat and enjoyed the Texas Scramble format which allowed everyone to contribute, whatever their golfing experience.
In the end Team Brasteds were crowned champions with an exceptional score of 56, 14 shots under par. Runners up were The Dawn Doggers with a score of 61 and in third place but still in the prizes was Radleys Raiders with a score of 63, which was still 7 shots under Par. There were also individual prizes on the day with Marcel Arrend from Team Brasteds taking the longest drive award with his impressive tee shot down the Par 5, 5th hole. There were two Nearest The Pin competitions. One on the 3rd hole, won by John Green from The Dawn Doggers and the other on the 14th hole, won by Rick Cheal from The Radley Raiders. A putting competition sponsored by Golf Days UK was tied between Sam Lambert and Marcel Arrend with scores of 10 putts each over six holes. This led to a play off putt in the bar afterwards which was won by Sam Lambert who claimed a brand new putter as his prize.
The golfers all enjoyed a BBQ in the bar afterwards and were able watch the highlights of the day caught on camera by Golf Days UK. A raffle organised by Chris Ketley, owner of Cleverdicks Hair Salon and Coffee Shop was well received with great prizes donated by generous local businesses, raised further funds for charity.
