The Enmore Park Golf Club Poppy Appeal Stableford last weekend played over a shortened course was won by Andrew Criddle with 21 points, writes Richard Walsh.

John Alderton claimed second with 20 points, but countback had to be used to separate the next two places, after which it was Craig Wright who was third just ahead of Ian Lane after both returned to the clubhouse with 19.

With the festive season not too far away on Wednesday the Ladies Section played the first of their Turkey Trot Stableford competitions, the results of which will be announced at the Ladies Christmas Dinner. 

When the Ladies first played their Turkey Trot competitions the winners really did win a turkey and the runners up won meat prizes. However these were then replaced by gift vouchers and then bottles of Christmas drinks.

At one stage there used to be a number of boxes and there would be a different prize in each one and as a winner’s name was drawn out, they could choose which box to pick and could end up with a tin of dog food or a turkey or joint of beef!

Talking of roast beef Enmore Park’s Sunday Carvery is second to none and served every weekend (on Sunday) in the Quantock Lounge in the clubhouse. Available to all, members and non members alike this is a great place to bring family and friends to enjoy a fantastic dining experience.

Served from 12.30pm to book or for further information please call 01278 672100 (option 5)
