Charity golf event in support of Bendrigg Trust

‘The ultimate judge of your swing is the flight of the ball’

Following the success and enjoyment of last year’s Playdale charity golf event, we decided to do it again! Teams made up of Playdale staff and local keen golfers spent a happy afternoon in the sun last Friday,  putting, pitching and driving to raise funds for the amazing Bendrigg Trust charity.

To date, a fantastic £537 has been raised! Bendrigg is once again one of Playdale’s chosen good causes for 2018; based in Old Hutton near Kendal they are industry leading experts for outdoor and physical activities for people with disabilities.

The Playdale Charity Golf day took place at Grange Fell Golf Club at Grange-over-Sands and once again the glorious Cumbrian sun shone down on our golfers.

Eleven teams of four played a ‘Texas Scramble’ format in fabulous weather conditions and the course was in great shape thanks to the efforts of Michael Hudson the Greenkeeper. This ensured lots of good scoring. The winning team of Paul Wilkinson (Playdale welder) and three other Ulverston Golf Club Members; G Wild, P Morson and M Sutter finished on 52.5 points ahead of two teams; one mainly from Grange Fell Golf Club K Pearson, D Robb, S Watts and F Foster and the team of S Wilson, R Davies (Carus Green), M Taylor and M Hudson.

The firm fairways meant the longest drive competition was closely fought with Paul Wilkinson again scooping the prize! The nearest pin was a tough one on such firm greens and Fred Foster’s effort at 350mm from the hole was a worthy winner!

The tournament played out well, with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves. We were lucky enough to have some generous sponsorship for the event with a host of fantastic donated prizes. Huge thank you to all our supportive sponsors!

Afterwards, it was into the clubhouse for gourmet pie & peas supplied by The Bakehouse at Greenodd, the raffle and some golfing reflection over a celebratory drink! (Celebrating a successful, enjoyable event)
