Fifty-six people took part in a charity golf day at Henley Golf Club. Fourteen teams of four competed in the seventh annual event in aid of the Chiltern Centre for disabled children, off Greys Road, Henley.
The day kicked off with a “shotgun start” in which every team teed off at the same time from a different hole. It finished on the putting green, where obstacle courses were marked out with tape in the style of crazy golf. The players then sat down for a two-course lunch with fund-raising games and a raffle.
Prizes were donated by local businesses including the Spice Merchant, Hotel du Vin, Hobbs of Henley, Badgemore Park Golf Club and Dorata, all of Henley, as well as Hennerton Golf Club in Wargrave and the Maltsters Arms in Rotherfield Greys. Organiser
Emma Lerche-Thomsen said: “It was a really lovely day. The players were keen and I think this will be one of our big success stories.” Since it started, the event has raised about £19,000.
