THE annual charity golf day organised by members of the Rotary Club of Midhurst and Petworth was another smash hit holing well over £6,000.

This year 33 teams took to the course at Cowdray Park in glorious sunshine.

And Rotary president Nigel Goodenough said he was particularly pleased to be able to present the first prize trophy to Ian Gibb and his team from Yeomans Honda who are the main sponsor and have supported the event for the last 13 years.

He said thanks to the generosity of players and sponsors more than £6000 was raised and the main beneficiaries would be Alzheimer’s Research UK and MacMillan Midhurst.

After being presented with the Chris Crisp Memorial Trophy by Patty Crisp, Ian joked: “It has only taken 13 years to win this trophy and I will have to come back now, next year to defend it,”

Mr Goodenough thanked Cowdray Park Golf Club for providing the venue. He also thanked the clubhouse and greens staff for giving Rotary ‘a perfect setting’.

Other prize winners were the Hindhead Holers who took second place,Three Men & a Boy were third and fourth were Poat’s People. Nearest the pin prizes went to Natalie Hewitt, Ian Cole, Patrick Newman and Michael Ashton.
