HARWICH and Dovercourt Golf Club held the Plonkers Cup - an annual competition to raise funds for Cancer Research.

The contest sees high-handicap players paired with low-handicap players.

It is a greensomes event where each player tees off, selects the best tee shot and then they play alternate shots.

At 1pm, the starting signal for the shotgun start sounded and the golf got underway.

Colin Wallace and Terry Woodward, with a combined halved handicap of 16, were crowned champions with a very good score of 44 points.

Although numbers were slightly down on previous years, all the entrants enjoyed the day.

As well as the golf, there was also a raffle, with prizes donated by club members, bar staff and catering staff.

There was also the guess the amount in the charity bottle and the winner was Peter Cole, who was closest with £525.

At the end of the day, all the money was counted and the grand total raised was over £800.

This was a great effort by all concerned and congratulations go to organisers Lee Rodger and Sue Hayes.

Meanwhile, Harwich's past captains entertained their counterparts from Braintree.

Six four balls took part in the competition.

This took the form of four ball better ball match play, with Hambro scoring.

Afterwards it was confirmed that Harwich had won by 13 holes.
