Golf club opening chips in for Macmillan
FUNDRAISING at a golf club is in full swing following its official opening.
The £1.8m South Buckinghamshire Golf Club has raised £6,400 so far for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The opening day celebrations included former England and Tottenham Hotspur player Darren Anderton playing on the 18-hole golf course, in a match between The South Buckinghamshire Golf Club and Farnham Park Golf Club, which the home team won.
Green fees were reduced for the day, with golfers invited to donate to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Vice-captain of The South Buckinghamshire Golf Club, Rishi Sidhu, said: “It was a wonderful event – a fitting launch. It was an enjoyable day and we are pleased so much money was raised for a great cause.”
The club is now gearing up for the South Bucks District Council’s Chairman’s Charity Golf Day on Friday, October 10, in aid of local charities. To enter, email golfenquiries@ southbucks.gov.uk.
