The recent Light Fund Charity Golf Day raised over £5,000 for the industry charity, with golfers and non golfers taking on some pretty damp weather to challenge for various prizes.
Held on May 8th at the Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, the event saw an array of execs of varying golfing abilities take to the course.
The Kings course was made more difficult by overnight rain, although conditions did ease during the day’s play. Prizes were awarded to the winning team and individual winner, while there were also prizes for nearest the pin, longest drive and beat the pro.
Each player was supplied with golf balls donated by Srixon.
As well as the overall winners and runners up, special mention should also go to some of the single handicap players – Phil Webster played off -6 scoring 34 points, returning the best score in this group.
