A charity golf day organised by Maidenhead Rotary Club has raised an estimated £5,500 for good causes.
The event, held at Maidenhead Golf Club in Shoppenhangers Road, on Wednesday last week (September 13), saw 17 teams of four battling it out for three team prizes, plus competition holes for nearest the pin and a putting competition.
The overall winning team was The Mavericks captained by Eric Rolfe, with Jan Robinson, and Dale and Vaughan Mizon, who scored 96 points.
Half-way around the course competitors stopped for refreshments provided by Rotarians and other friends of the club.
The day of golf on the course was followed by dinner in the evening at the clubhouse attended by 97 people during which a ‘heads and tails' competition raised £410 and an auction of prizes which raised another £1,551.
The event was organised by a committee made up of Eileen Clarke, Janet Perry, Julia Foulds and Sue Dutton.
Committee chairman Eddie Clarke said: “We have been running the Golf Day since 2007 and with 68 golfers in 17 teams this was the largest field we have had.
"The weather was kind and all had a great day. We are delighted with an overall total of £5,500, which is a fantastic amount to have raised.”
The organisers would also like to thank Shanly Foundation for sponsoring the event.
