The Foxes & Rabbits Pairs Medal Competition, a popular New Year holiday event at Gosfield Lake Golf Club, was won by club captain Geoff Powdrill and his daughter Sarah.

The competition is played on the Meadows Course at Gosfield and is open to members and members’ guests.

The fox in the team has to play the hole tee to green and the rabbit then has to putt out to complete the hole.

In cold, bright weather, the competition began with a shotgun start.

The result was close when the event finished and the winning team by one stroke were captain Powdrill and his daughter.

In second place, after count back, was Andy Matthews playing with Nick Thorogood, and in third place Ralph Rowe with wife Maggy.

The lowest number of putts was won by Linda Eley, Ethan Richards and George Hewings.
