Golf Day

September 2019

 

Shaftesbury Rotary Club, led by Richard Shean, delivered yet another hugely successful Golf Day at Rushmore. This year we were blessed with sunshine and supported by 18 local sponsoring teams.

 

All 18 teams started together with a Shotgun Start, this allowed to complete their rounds together and enjoy lunch and the 19th hole! Whilst the weather was enjoyed by all, the strong wind made for an interesting game. The Par 3, 14 players were hitting into the wind, with only two players managing to make it to the green and walk away with a prize!

 

The main beneficiary to the Golf Day is Shaftesbury Charity Hope which is a charity specializing to provide drop-in mental health services and out-of-hours assistance as part of a partnership with two other Dorset social enterprises.

 

Thank you to Richard as always and to the Ladies, Dawn, Pamela and Sonia, who used their charming skills in selling raffle tickets which alone raised over £450.
We would also like to thank The Wessex Group the main sponsors for the day, together with all the companies that participated in the day.

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus, the 2020 Golf Day has been cancelled.
