92 members of Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club set off in pursuit of the Royal British Legion’s Commemorative Golf Medal on Remembrance Sunday (14th November).

At 11:00 club members gathered in the car park to observe the 2-minute silence to honour the fallen. At 11:15, the claxon sounded and, from a shot-gun start, the Am-Am competition began – in teams of 4.

The winners of the RBL Commemorative Golf Medal were Nick Clemens, Roger Clemens, James Clemens and Jason Hawkes.

On Tuesday (16th November), under the watchful eye of Lady Captain Connie Huntington, the ladies of Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club took to the course for a 13 hole Am-Am Stableford competition in aid of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

After the competition, the ladies found the bring and buy table more than a little tempting with a vast array of books, plants, cakes and produce for sale.

The winners of the competition were Debbie Berry, Jan Hill, Christine O’Brien and Hazel Smith with 70 points. Placed second were Lucy Burke, Sarah Dana, Anna Garriock and Brenda Keyte with 67 points and Lillian Bushby, Ronnie Hirst, Bev Lowrie and Pearl Robertson came third with 65 points.
