Our Annual Charity Golf Day
There have been nearly 20 Charity Golf Days promoted by Brigantes, 17 of which have been held at Oakdale Golf Club. There will be 24 teams from local businesses, private groups and other Rotary Clubs with four players in each team. The match is a Stableford off full handicap with a cut-off at 24 - the best two scores on each hole count. (Shotgun Start!)
The main prize for the highest overall score, is the Thompson Trophy.
There were also two on-course prizes: nearest the pin on hole 9 ) and the straightest drive on hole 18 ). A new challenge, 'Beat the Pro' (Tom Hesketh) on Hole 9 (Par3)will take place.
It has always been an enjoyable day for golfers with refreshments provided and a post match Awards Dinner in the Golf-house : most teams come back year after year.
The Golf Days are a very successful fundraiser making in the region of £5000, with the proceeds are going to Local Charities. Interested to know how the funds are raised on different elements of the day: significant monetary sponsorship from seven organisations (£3000), adverts in the programme (£1125); team entries (£4000); tombola prizes and a silent auction run in the bar during the day (£1000); and an auction of some of the best items donated at the Awards Dinner (£1000).
