Golf members celebrate at Presentation Evening
Over 90 people gathered in the Kestrel Suite of Brean Country Club on Friday evening to celebrate the success of the Brean Golf Club members during 2019. The event also saw the culmination of the 2019 Captain's Charity fundraising and a presentation of a cheque for the final amount to the British Skin Foundation to specifically aid research in Skin Cancer. Everyone enjoyed the superb two course meal that was served up before settling back to watch the Presentations hosted by Brean's Director of Golf and PGA Professional Andrew March. March was ably assisted at various points of the night by Club Captain Trevor Pitt, Lady Captain Lyn Bird and Brean Country Club ambassador Peter Trego to hand the awards to the winners.
With almost 100 Trophies and awards to hand out it was a busy night with much reminiscing over events of the past 12 months. A few special awards were handed out and Barry Fellows was awarded the Golfer of the Year accolade by the club committee after entering the winners enclosure over 10 times during the calendar year! Pitt himself was honoured as he won the Clubperson of the Year cup in recognition of his fabulous fundraising efforts and seamlessly taking on the Club Chairman's role mid season as well.
The final three Trophies given out were to the Club Champions of the three sections of the club. Barry Fellows was the Seniors Champion whilst Lyn Bird completed her hat trick of wins in the Ladies event. Phil Hodgson received the Club Championship trophy for the first time and delivered an excellent speech to the room to close the award ceremony. Pitt then took centre stage as he explained how the final total had been compiled and thanked every one who had contributed in any shape or form. He called upon Kelly Taylor, who attended the event from the British Skin Foundation, to receive the cheque which was a massive sum of £10,101.77. Taylor then thanked the membership of the golf club for their amazing effort and explained how this money would be put to great use. The Charity was chosen as club members had unfortunately been diagnosed with Skin cancer in recent times and Taylor urged all present to protect themselves against skin cancer when on the golf course and not to hesitate in taking a trip to the Doctor should they need to get anything checked out.
