Golfers putt £3,800 into charity funds at seniors day
ALMOST £4,000 was raised for charity at the Oakland Park Golf Club Seniors’ Captain’s Day at Oakland Park Golf Club last Thursday.
Sponsors, raffles, auctions and donations on the day raised £3,800 for the Pepper Foundation, which provides hospice-at-home care for lifelimited children.
On the course, Bob Steel won the stableford tournament with 42 points, followed by Steven James with 39, Richard Nightingale with 38 and Richard Cranston with 36.
Event sponsors Ssang Yong even provided a Tivoli car as a prize to any senior hitting a hole in one on the day, but nobody was able to manage the feat.
