TEAMS from all over the south competed for the Chris Crisp Memorial trophy at the Midhurst and Petworth Rotary Club’s 14th annual Golf Charity Day.

In third place were the Sciatic Swingers from Worthing Golf Club, second were Proclean and the winners were the KerryType Fore, captained by Darren Clarke, managing director of KerryType, a local business who have helped to sponsor the charity event for many years.

The day was, as always, well supported by main sponsor Towers Watson and Yeomans Honda who once again exhibited their cars. Other sponsors included BUPA Pendean, Rolls Brothers Window’s, Seven Fish and MacDonald Oates.

This year the main beneficiary was Marie Curie Cancer Care.

With 148 Golfers taking part and buying tickets for a fantastic array of raffle prizes, plus accepting the Cowdray challenge on the third hole to bet that their ball would stay on the green, together with a putting competition, the Rotary Club of Midhurst and Petworth made a little more than £7,000 profit on the day.

The organising committee of Rotarians John Barrett, Rob Doney and Roger Poat would like to say a huge thank you to Cowdray Park Golf Club, all the Sponsors, the golfers and helpers that made the day a fantastic success.

Now just put next year’s Rotary Charity golf day in your diaries – August 2014!
