20 teams – 80 players – shotgun start


A big thank you to everyone for supporting this year’s Charity Day event. The warm friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse was really pleasing and suggested that everyone had enjoyed the day as much as I did myself.

Each Charity Day is special, but this one was extra special as it was the first “mass gathering event” that we have been permitted to hold since the pandemic started in March last year.

We were blessed with a hot sunny day with no more than a gentle breeze. The course was in excellent condition.

Well done to all the winners, and a big thank you to all those that sponsored the prizes. BGL for the team prizes and Paul Felstead, Derek Housam & Pat Linnington for the Nearest The Pin prizes.

…. and thank you to our Special Guests. Danny Harkin (Club President), John Hilton (Club Captain), Malcom Voce (Seniors Captain), Will Davies (Head Professional) and Theresa Plimmer (General Manager).

We are currently hard at work checking all the finances from the day and crunching all the numbers, and are anticipating that this event has raised circa £600 towards this year’s charity fund. A further £290 was raised through the sale of Main Club Charity raffle tickets (which will be drawn on 14th August). A truly successful day, thank you to everyone.
