HARRY Ayers was fondly remembered at Beccles Golf Club on Saturday when a large field of competitors contested his memorial trophy.

Harry was a popular former long-serving member of the club who sadly died whilst on holiday in Spain several years ago.

The in-form Matthew Baylis Womack won the event for the second time with his score of 76-12-64 having won it for the first time in 2004.

His resultant handicap cut came at a bad time with the Tolly competition imminent. David Wells (78-12-66) was the runner-up despite suffering from a bad back (beware the injured golfer) with Willie White third on 88-20-68.

At the presentation sponsor Mike Garrood, a close friend and past golfing partner of Harry said he would have been proud to see so many members contesting his trophy.

Club captain Alan Ereira congratulated junior Christian Lever on carding two birdies in his round helping him earn a top-10 finish and thanked Linda for the refreshments.

The Wm Clowes Trophy, contested on Sunday, was almost called off after two hours due to heavy snow which thankfully eased. Willie White won the event with 42 points with David Dean Snr (39 pts) second and Terry Squires third (34 pts).Rhona's warming refreshments were appreciated by the cold competitors.

The tee off for the 18-hole competition on Saturday, April 12 is 8.05am (draw 8am).
