Sue said: “My thanks go again to Styal Golf Club for host­ing the event and to all those who helped in so many ways both on and off the course.

“There were nu­mer­ous com­pli­ments for the new holes at the club and the re­vised lay out of the course and we hope to raise in the re­gion of £2,600 on the day through en­try fees, raf­fles etc and we were lucky to have good weather for the event.
