THE Rotary Club of Midhurst and Petworth is once again putting funds to a great cause.

Dozens of Rotarians got together for their 15th annual charity golf day, which took place at the Cowdray Park Golf Club.

Once again generously sponsored by Towers Watson, Yeomans Honda and Kerrytype, some 33 teams took part in glorious conditions, enjoying Cowdray Park Golf Club at its very best.

After checking of some very close results, the Chris Crisp Trophy for first place was won by ‘The Good, Bad and Ugly’.

Their team captain, Ian Leithead, is an assistant governor of Rotary District 1250.

Close behind this team were the Hindhead Holers, Kerrytype Fore and BUPA.

Other challenges included a ‘single ball’ won by ‘Good Golly I’m Molly’, and Mike Baudry won the putting competition.

Four ‘nearest the pin holes’ were won by Andrew Balchin, Mandy Lucking, Jim Hilson and Gary Baker.

The final money raised is expected to be more than £6,000.

This year, the main charity to benefit is Prostate Cancer Research UK.

Prostate cancer kills one man every hour, with one in eight men being affected in their lifetime.

Since the Midhurst and Petworth Rotary Club started the charity golf day, more than £86,000 has been raised for local and national charities.
