Charity golf day raises more than £7,000

By Chris Derrick in Charity

THE 25th Kingsbridge Estuary Rotary Club charity golf day was held at Thurlestone Golf Club on Thursday, June 2.

The format of the day was a ‘full handicap Stableford’ made up of ladies, gentlemen and mixed teams. Stableford is a scoring system that awards points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole - the winners being the team with the highest score at the end of the round.

The Coast and Country Cottages team won the event with 90 Stableford points, beating their nearest revivals by five points.

The event was played in glorious weather, with the golf course looking and playing beautifully. The aim of the day, as well as giving the players the opportunity for an enjoyable round of golf, was to raise money for the club’s chosen charities.

The event raised more than £7,000 for two charities - the Ataxia-Telangiectasia Society which supports families and sufferers of this severely disabling condition. And the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust – a local charity supporting young people with disabilities.

A spokesperson for the club said: ‘The support that the rotary club receives each year is truly wonderful and once again we must thank all those that have given their support, the players, local businesses and our main sponsors Brewin Dolphin.’
