BOXING Day saw several members of Beccles Golf Club up early to blow away the cobwebs for a nine-hole stableford.

A large field braved the cold to support ladies' captain Sam Cooper who gave up a lay-in to run the competition and feed the competitors after the event with hot chilli and bolognaise.

Competition fees were waived for the day and those participating were asked to make a contribution to the lady captain's charity which raised £50 for her 2009 fund for the Air Ambulance and the Tom Fisher ASBAH fund.

In first place Pat Gill won the “packet of shortbread,” second-placed George Savill won “the tape measure” and the third place was worth a “Christmas cracker” to Jim Redpath.
