Memorial golf day is big boost for Brunswick
THE Michael Marshall Memorial Golf Day, in aid of The Brunswick Youth & Community Centre, Bootle, enjoyed its 17th successful visit to Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
Offering one of the few opportunities to play the famous Hoylake links for non-members, the 17th running of the event since its inauguration in 2002, saw teams play the famous course that has hosted the world’s best golfers on 12 occasions at the Open Championship.
With warm but windy conditions, the Royal Liverpool course provided a stiff test for the teams.
The field was drawn from the business and private community throughout the North and all enjoyed an excellent day’s golf.
The competition was won by a team representing Arthur J Gallagher.
The contest was followed by a gala prize-giving dinner in the famous clubhouse, where Siobhan McCormick from the Brunswick Youth and Community Centre presented the prizes.
Rick Taylor, chair of the Brunswick, said: “Once again we had an excellent day on the Hoylake links and an excellent evening in the historic clubhouse.
“This is the 17th year we have held the Michael Marshall Memorial Golf Day at Hoylake and I would like to thank all the companies who took part and supported the event and the Brunswick.
“Each year the event has raised valuable funds to help the Brunswick achieve its aims of helping the under privileged children of Bootle and the surrounding area, and the wider community.”
Teams are already looking forward to next year’s event, which is scheduled for Friday, September 20, 2019, again at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
