On Friday the 26th July 4 of our members took on the longest day of golf challenge in aid of the Macmillan cancer support charity.
Longest day of golf
Debbie Cooper (our lady captain) along with Sarah Barry, Alan Bell and Warren Dempster pulled on their golf shoes and tee’d off at a rather sleepy 5:30 am to start this long and challenging feat.
The team were thrilled by the encouragement of other members who kindly let them play though as the day progressed. They managed to get 4 rounds completed in a timely fashion – a good job considering Warren was playing in the club championship the following day.
Of course this charity will touch many members of the golf club and their families and friends so our endurance golfers were hugely appreciative of the donations you kindly gave.
On behalf of the 72 challenge team, thank you so much for your support. Throughout the day the amount of encouragement we received kept us going. Apart from a few insect bites and some very tired legs we all felt surprisingly ok!! We’ll let you know ASAP the amount raised for this very worthwhile cause.
