Gill Magrath and Janice White represented the club in the South West Area Finals of the Australian Spoons competition at Cumberwell Park playing against 42 clubs from St Mellion to Axecliff, from Torquay to Cricket St. Thomas.

Somerset Junior League

June 25 2018

 Wells hosted the fourth leg of the Somerset Junior League with a selection of the finest Junior golfers from Enmore, Worlebury, Taunton & Pickeridge, Oake Manor, Mendip Spring and Wells in attendance.

On what was a glorious afternoon, the scoring proved difficult with the low handicappers struggling to find a rhythm on the tricky track. The individual competition was won by Eve Brimfield of Mendip Spring with a superb 41 points and Enmore secured victory in the team competition for the second week running.

The Wells team of Freddie Lovell (Junior Captain), George Barrow-Stacey, Tom Roberts, Edward Higgs and Alfie Lovell finished a solid third and certainly secured the 'fashion stakes' in their St Andrews Press sponsored Pink shirts and golf balls, Bubba Watson watch this space !


Thank Lisa for all your hard work running it.

125 Celebrations

June 4 2018

A fun filled weekend was organised to celebrate 125 years for Wells Golf Club. Greenstaff had worked hard on the layout of the old course, which caused the golfers to think. Alan and his team had planned hog roasts and barbecues for the evenings and the stage was set for everyone to enjoy themselves.

The first day’s competition was a bowmaker with Tony Blunden, Geoff Dyer and M Edgar winning with an amazing 88 points followed by G Ramsell, Ron Davey and Ian Mills 86 points on countback. The highlight of the day was Nick Wilson playing a hole in one, expertly rolling the ball down the slope and onto the green on the signature 10th hole. The best Ladies/Mixed team was Janette Norris, Linda Wright and Chris Gee.

The second day was a fourball better ball with B Marcham and R Gould first with 45 pts on countback and G Spinks/Ken Scadden in second place. In fact, 7 teams had 45 points! The first Ladies/Mixed team were Peter and Diane Ramsay.

John Chillington, President, thanked everyone for making it a celebration to remember, including the starters, ladies in the green room, the pro-shop, the caterers and the members.
