Raising their clubs to raise hospice funds

A charity golf day in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice raised thousands of pounds - and lots of smiles on the day.

The event at South Cliff Golf Club was blessed with glorious weather, with 30 teams enjoying a round of golf in the blazing sunshine.

The annual event sees players take part from Scarborough and beyond, with some entrants this year coming from Sheffield and Beverley.

Each team pays an entry fee to take part and in return has bacon buttie on arrival, a game of golf and a meal at the end.

There were two “nearest the pin” prizes given out, along with prizes for first, second, third and fourth place.

Organiser Penny Campbell said: “It’s been a fabulous event and the weather has been fantastic.

“People have come from all over for the event and it has raised in the region of £2,000.

“This is the fifth year we’ve done it and we’re very grateful for the support we’ve received. We get lots of people coming back year after year and meeting up with old friends.” Penny thanked the club and the pro for all their help with the event.
