Charity Golf Day Back In The Swing

Another successful Charity Golf Day held by Tameside Rotary and Werneth Low Golf Club in aid of Willow Wood Hospice on Wednesday 19th August attracted a record number of 21 teams!

Golfers obviously keen to get out and what an ideal event during this covid 19 pandemic when evidence shows it is much safer outside. Outside events are obviously the new ideal (and it didn’t rain THAT MUCH!), so this was the perfect fund-raising event that is hosted every year.

This event has a very unique team scoring system with the winners this year from Malbern Windows with a record 105 points and runners up, entering for the first time Alcker’s Army with 97 points. Nearest the Pin Frazer Armitage and Nearest the White Line Colin Rosbottom.

Maria Bailey, President of Tameside Rotary thanked everyone at Werneth Low Golf Club for the warm welcome and fantastic support received and is looking forward to next year’s event.

Elaine McConnell, on behalf of Willow Wood explained what a difficult year fund raising has been for the Hospice and it was really appreciated that this Annual Golf Day had been such a success. 

Just over £2000 was raised, for Willow Wood Hospice, which beats all expectations. Andy Williams, founder President of Tameside Rotary and the main organiser thanked all sponsors, helpers and players for their generosity in making sure this event ‘Went with a Swing’.
