Oaklands Park Captain’s Day raises £6k for charity
MORE than £6,000 was collected for charity at Oaklands Park Golf Club’s Men’s Captain’s Day on Saturday.
Around 130 members and guests took to the course before enjoying an evening celebration, raising an impressive sum for the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust.
Unfortunately, nobody took home the brand new Honda Jazz offered up by Johnsons Honda of Beaconsfield for anyone managing a hole in one.
There were plenty of fine performances on the green, however, not least by Mark Taylor, who saw off the challenges of 95 other men to win the men’s stableford with 39 points.
In what was a tight finish, it took a count back to separate the next three, who all finished on 38 points, which determined Steve Gammage finished in second place, Jeff Rowlands in third and Richard Cranston in fourth.
The ladies’ nine hole competition, meanwhile, saw Sue Tame emerge victorious from a field of 33, finishing on 20 points.
Mirroring the men’s competition, it took a count back to separate Diana Douglas in second, Christine Haigh in third and Pauline Priest in fourth after they all tied on 19.
