The best ladies team was the Ladies Vice Squad which scored 107 points.

There were other competitions taking place on the day for the longest drive on the 12th, nearest the pin, nearest the pin in two and individual par 3s with eleven points.

The total amount of money raised was £3,900.

The event was sponsored by Jeremy’s Restaurant, Orange Square, Mansell McTaggart, PS Homes, Gould and Company, Excel Financial Solutions and George Niblett.

Thirteen other businesses advertised in the program which also contributed to the final total raised.

A spokesperson for the rotary thanked the golfers who took part and said the support of the businesses, entry fees and the proceeds from a grand raffle all contributed to a ‘magnificent effort’ to raise money for those who are less fortunate.
