Thanks to all those who entered this year’s Photography Competition. Forty entries were submitted, including many excellent photos. The judges, Lu Claridge (Ladies Captain); Ian Lake (Men’s Captain) and Malcolm Hardingham (Club President), were given a link to all the entries – excluding any means of identifying the names of those who submitted them. The judges asked to select three photos each to add to a shortlist. Unsurprisingly, there were some duplicates. In fact the shortlist comprised seven photos.
All the photos, not just those shortlisted, were on display as a ‘slideshow’ in the clubhouse on Saturday 23rd December. The judges were on hand to make their final selection from the shortlist – again without the names of those submitting them. Only when they had made their decision were they given the relevant names.
In third place, was the picture submitted by J.Whichelow of the Second Hole:
In second place, was the picture of golf balls on the sixth green, submitted by Elma Shedden:
The winner of the Swaffham Golf Club Photography Competition for 2017 was this entry submitted by Linda Holland taken on the Seventh Hole:
Thanks once again to all those who took the time to get involved in this competition. Look out for the results appearing in the local press, and for the opportunity to take part in another round of this competition in 2018.
