Trophies handed out at Gala celebration

WELLS Golf Club members and guests celebrated New Year’s Eve with a Dinner Dance & Gala, including a review of 2022, the presentation of the main trophies, and welcoming in the 2023 season.

A fabulous three-course meal ensured the proceedings began with a flying start, the presentations were interspersed between the courses, and live music was provided by Max Hutton until the early hours of the morning, ensuring it would be quieter than usual on the golf course in the morning.

Top honours went to Toby Cole, who not only won the Club Championship but also the Scratch Cup, a rare feat indeed.

The club have selected The Orchard Vale Trust as the Captain’s Charity for 2023, and various fundraising activities will be taking place throughout the year to raise monies for specialised equipment.

The Trust provide both residential and home-based care and specialist services for some 100 young adults with learning difficulties, who are all local to Wells. The philosophy of the Trust is that they exist to serve these young adults, in order that they can achieve their full potential.

The main residential home is at East Court, near Wookey, Wells, with others in Shepton Mallet and Cheddar.
