Captains' Drive-in 2017

January 13 2017

Sunday 8th January


New Club Captain, Stuart Mann, got his year off to a flying start with his drive-in which was not only fully subscribed, but had a waiting list. Mann was delighted and even more so due to the number of new members who participated. The four captains for the year, Club Captain Mann, Captain of the ladies Tina Davies, Captain of the seniors Glyn Hallett and Captain of the juniors Tom Roberts all drove well which is always pleasing as this is the symbolic start to the Captain's year.

 

Defibrilator installed at Wells GC

December 6 2016

Wells Golf Club has installed a potentially life-saving piece of equipment after a successful fund-raising campaign that received a boost from an unexpected source.

The campaign raised enough to buy a top-of-the-range defibrillator, a device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart of someone in cardiac arrest. If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, survival chances increase from 6 per cent to 74 per cent.

The club's director of health and safety, Bob Lench, originally recommended purchasing one four years ago, but prices at that time were prohibitive and the club decided against it.
However, Mr Lench revisted the idea following the death of a player on the course, and this time the club agreed.
