A Glorious Day on The Greens
On Thursday 1st September at West End Golf Club, the Rotary Club of Halifax held its 20th Charity Golf Day.
More than thirty teams enjoyed pleasant weather on an immaculate course, albeit the north-west breeze provided a challenge on occasions!
The main sponsor for the competition was DD Porter Construction, and Keywood Olley and Charlesworth Estates were associate sponsors.
The Keywood Olley team came first with 87 points, beating ‘Waite’s Winos’ on a countback, with James Chambers Timber Merchants in third and KT Hydraulics fourth
Eastwood & Partners Ltd sponsored a hole in one challenge, with valuable prizes for anyone scoring an ‘ace’ on any of the par-threes. There was great excitement when Alan Benn-Landale, one of the Keywood Olley & Associates Ltd team, did just that on 13th! As a result he will shortly be the proud owner of a fine set of irons.
Thanks were extended by President David Roper of the Rotary Club of Halifax not only to the sponsors and all teams that entered, but to Inner Wheelers who provided on-course refreshments, to West End Golf Club, and the many Rotarian Club members who beavered away on the day. The Club anticipates that around £8,000 was made by the event, which will be distributed in the coming weeks to local charities and good causes.
