There was a very successful golf day in aid of the Trust on the red course at The Berkshire on Thursday 9 October with teams on every hole. There was no auction to speak of or a raffle this year but the Trust still made a considerable amount of money with mulligans for sale, beat the pro on the 7th and a draw in respect of a four ball at Royal Cinque Ports in Deal and a Masters jumper. Michael Robinson did auction a four ball at Royal St George’s, Sandwich, and a Ryder Cup 2016 shirt during lunch.
The event was won, at last according to the young men!, by the team comprising Michael, Nick Pritchard, Ollie Tunnicliffe & Tim Bates. James Lofthouse, Charlie Heap, Will Gay & William Barroll-Brown were second and, much to their surprise, Cara Robinson & Penny Sheehan were third. The other two members of their team forgot (!!) so Cara and Penny played two balls each the whole way round to make up for the fact that they were 2 instead of 4.
Nearest the pin was won by Wanda Lloyd for the Ladies and Michael Hedges for the men. Nearest the line was won by Janet Templeman for the Ladies and Michael Robinson for the men. The Masters jumper was won by Eva Lamaison and the RCPGC four ball by Caroline Sweerts.
Special mention must be made of Savills, who sponsored the refreshment buggy and entered a team. We are very grateful to them for their support.
Well done to everyone who took part and the staff at The Berkshire who were very helpful both beforehand and on the day itself.
