Golfers club together to fight Motor Neurone Disease!

On Friday 23rd August 2019, over eighty keen golfers took part in Leatherhead Rotary Club’s 28th Annual Charity Golf Day at Effingham Golf Club in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The Early Risers, winners of Leatherhead Rotary Club’s 28th Annual Charity Golf Day held at Effingham Golf Club on Friday 23rd August 2019

Teeing off with a sandwich lunch, the 21 teams of four then headed out on to the course for a full 18-hole round of golf, returning to the clubhouse around five hours later for a two-course supper and the presentation of prizes. After a very closely fought competition, The Early Risers emerged triumphant at the top of the leaderboard with a Stableford score of 123 points, narrowly beating Samandco into second place, with a score of 120 points. Three teams, The Motley Crew, HP Dorks and Hope, finished joint third, each with a still very commendable score of 114 points.

The John Lawrence Memorial Shield for the highest individual score of the day was awarded to Chris Greenaway, with a very impressive score of 42 points.

Following on from the golf competition presentations, Rotarian Adrian O’Loughlin auctioned off two rounds of golf for four people, at Effingham Golf Club and the RAC Golf Club, which, together with various other fundraising activities throughout the day, including a tombola and £50 note raffle, helped to raise over £4,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, the club’s main charity for the year.

Leatherhead Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who so generously supported this year’s event, by way of team entries, sponsorship, programme advertising and donation of tombola prizes, and also Kall Kwik in Leatherhead for very kindly printing the Golf Day programmes.

Leatherhead Rotary Club meets at 7pm most Wednesday evenings at the Police Federation Headquarters in Highbury Drive, Leatherhead.
