Colin Wilkins and John Lovick took the ‘Champion Club’ honours for Swaffham Golf Club at the SSAFA (Armed Forces charity) Norfolk Seniors Golf Tournament Finals, by the narrowest of margins.
Playing over their home course, with a cumulative score of 64 stableford points, they won on a tie count from Brian Hannan and Ian Kidger, of Links Country Park Golf Club.
John Perry and Terry Lees of Richmond Park were in third place, after a tie count with Mundesley Golf Club.
Hannan enjoyed compensation for the narrow defeat, when he took the ‘Individual Trophy’ with his personal score of 37 points.
This gave him a two stroke margin of victory from Robert Peaker of Mundesley GC, while Bob Wyllie of Hunstanton Golf Club was a further stroke behind, in third place on 34 points.
With the Swaffham course superbly presented for tournament conditions, the scores were a considerable achievement by these players, to lead the way in a field of 21 club pairings from across the county.
Other local clubs represented included Ryston Park, Middleton Hall, Feltwell, RAF Marham and Heacham Manor.
This was the 12th season for the SSAFA Norfolk Seniors Golf Tournament.
This year, the generosity of the participating clubs resulted in raising £3,250 towards funding for the charitable support of Armed Forces veterans and their families.
