Blacknest Golf Club Section members, families and friends joined together for their Club Charity Day on 3rd June 2017. The weather was ideal as 18 teams of 4 participated in an Alliance Stableford with an additional yellow ball competition. There were also individual nearest the pin, nearest the line and most birdies competitions.
We were one of 29 local companies, plus members, who sponsored the day. This, along with donations for a silent auction and raffle, enabled a splendid total of £3,285 to be raised. An excellent result which will be split between three charities - Surrey Young Carers, Oracle Cancer Trust and the On Course Foundation.
The winning team was Lesley Barton, Matt Evans, Tim Winkworth, and Paul Blackwell and they won a 4-ball at Old Thorns Golf Course plus a bottle of wine and a sleeve of Titleist balls each. The digital watch, donated by us, was won by Matt Franklin for scoring the most (3) birdies by a gentleman.
Blacknest Golf Club members would like to extend a huge thank you to all the companies and individuals who supported this annual event through sponsorship or donation of a prize. You can follow Blacknest on Facebook here and see more photos of the event!
