  Brean Golf Club becomes signatory on Women in Golf Charter  

OVER the past few months Brean Golf Club have been working towards producing their Women in Golf Charter commitments and they are pleased to announce that they are now approved as a signatory of the Charter.

The Charter is a joint initiative by all the leading governing bodies in the game to as the golf industry seeks to safeguard the sport for the future by creating the conditions to attract more women and girls into the game.

In the next 12 months the club will be working on various initiatives to help them deliver the commitments to the Charter and they will be calling on existing club members to assist them with this in various ways. Club PGA Professional and Director of Golf Andrew March has assumed the role of Charter Champion for the club and will be assisted in delivering this by Lady Captain Linda Edmondson and the Ladies section members.

This will involve running Club Open Day’s and various coaching schemes for Ladies and Juniors to try to introduce new golfers to the game and hopefully from that new members to the club. It is hoped that with restrictions allowing that these can get underway in the Spring.

The full Charter will soon be appearing on the club website on their Club Policies page alongside Safeguarding Policies and Equality and Diversity policy that have recently been adopted as well.

On the course over the past week the activity was limited due to the wet weather. A couple of midweek events beat the rain with the Seniors playing a Blind Pairs Stableford on Tuesday over 18 holes. The damp conditions restricted numbers and Barrie Yearsley and Ken Ponter were drawn out of the hat to amass the winning total. Yearsley had the best of the day with 33 and when Ponter's score was added to it it gave them a winning margin of 3 points over Mike Allen and Barrie Tucker.

After another wet day on Wednesday only 9 holes were open for play on Thursday but still a hardy few ventured out. Kevin Davies took the honours with 22 points over the shortened round and finished three clear of his playing partners of Tony Higgins and Mats Mattsson. Mattsson was awarded 2nd spot on countback ahead of Higgins with new member Tony Aimson 4th on 17.

The annual Christmas Running Stableford competition got underway over just 9 holes on the weekend. This year to prevent unnecessary travel it is restricted to club members with the winners announced on New Years Eve. Subject to the weather/course conditions allowing both a nine hole and 18 hole event will run simultaneously for the rest of the year.

Everyone at Brean Golf Club would like to wish al the members and the many visitors we have welcomed in 2020 and very happy and safe Christmas this year and we hope to see you all at the golf club again very soon.
