It was a fantastic turn out and a day to remember. Luckily we managed to escape the wrath of the hurricane too.“We are looking to make this golf day an annual event, to bring local businesses together and to raise money for their chosen charities.”Before the day had started, Â£800 had already been raised, with an extra Â£600 being donated during the course of the day.A total of 17 teams, each with four players took part for 18 holes of golf, with each team given four chances to win some fantastic prizes for ‘nearest to the pin’ and the ‘longest drive.’
