Memo­rial golf day is big boost for Brunswick

Midweek Visiter - - News -

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.

Those in­ter­ested in tak­ing part or sup­port­ing the event should con­tact Brian Roberts at bra@bt­con­nect.com or on 07887 678160.
