St Ives Golf Day 2023

The annual St Ives Town Golf Day took place on Friday 12 May.

The event was held at Lakeside Lodge Golf Course near Huntingdon and attracted over twenty teams. This year all teams taking part were playing for the Carl Circus Trophy, which was named after a supporter of St Ives Town who sadly passed away earlier in the season. The club welcomed his widow, Carol to the presentation ceremony held at the Quattro-Tech Westwood Road after the event.

The competition was won by St Ives based accountants, Thomas Quinn. The victory sees them win the Golf Day on three successive occasions after wins in 2019 and 2022. The competition was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Mark MacDonald, who was part of the Thomas Quinn team said “We are delighted to win. It is always a fantastic event to take part in and extremely well organised. It is also great to see Carol Circus here. Many of us know her well and it is a fitting tribute to Carl that we competed for a trophy in his memory.”

Vic Moseley, who organised the event for the football club said “It was a fantastic day, and despite the weather I would like to thank everyone who participated in the testing conditions.  Golf is at its best in sunny weather, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case on Friday.  I would like to thank Thomas Quinn for their continued sponsorship of the event and everyone who helped out especially Maureen Clarke and Marina Howlett for the superb buffet, Phil Moore and Gareth Chapman for co-ordinating the raffle and Andy Dunn for his work as MC and auctioneer”.
