23 teams compete in Brean Golf Club's annual charity fundraiser

Brean Golf Club has hosted its annual Pro Celebrity Am day this week for the 24th time.

The main benefactor was again the Injured Jockeys Fund, a charity chosen by the House family who own Brean Leisure Park.

Many familiar faces took part in the event, enjoying a day's golf with some new faces sampling the sport for the first time.

23 teams took part and enjoyed a course in an excellent condition despite the club having a battle with the elements in the days leading up to the event.

Brean Golf Club Captain Paul Jones is no stranger to success in the event and he again had that winning feeling in 2014 as he led home the golf club team.

He was joined by Steve Bateman, Graham Foy and Steven Eley as they racked up a formidable 85 point score that wouldn’t be beaten.

In the end they won by five from another Jones, Paul’s Uncle Eric, who led the Jones Bros Builders team made up of Eric, Phil Hodgson, Simon Baunton and Wayne Barrett.

Their 80 point score was matched by the Heineken sponsored team of Mark Short, Andy Horsborough, Paul Coumis and Ron Ganfield but the former had the better back nine score.

Rounding off the prizewinners was another Brean quartet in the shape of the Ladies team alongside Brean PGA Director of Golf Andrew March. Ladies Captain Annie Williams, her Captain Elect Suzanne Hatfield and last year’s Captain Sheila Rouse handed in 77 points to edge out the Brean Seniors team in another countback.

"The day was expertly organised by Kelly Davison and Deidre Wheadon at the Leisure Park and the competitors enjoyed a superb meal ahead of the prizegiving which all took place in the Tavern. Next year when it celebrates its Silver Jubilee it is hoped for an even bigger turn out for the popular event," said the club's Andrew March.
