Charity Day is a great success

On Saturday Matlock Golf Club held its annual Captain’s Charity Day.

Tuesday, 24th September 2013, 8:53 pm

Members raised in excess of £1,600 towards this season’s captain’s nominated charities of Chesterfield Cardiac Rehabilitation and Myeloma UK.

An Am-Am competition was held on the day with Graham Jones, Jack Greatorex, Barry Dring and Malc Morley winning with 91 points. The best mixed team was lady captain Louise Jones, Carol and Rae Gladwyn and Veda Kay with 80 points, while best ladies team was Pam Hedley, Sadie Clayton, Jill Smith and Raile Turk with 76 points.

On the prestigious finals day the weather was kinder than expected but still conditions were somewhat wet and windy making play difficult.
