Kenilworth: Course open.
Tuesday 11th September 2018
Kenilworth Golf Club were proud to host the 10th Charity golf Day for our Town Mayor. This year Mayor Kate Dickson has two charities she is supporting, firstly Birth & Babies, the new midwifery led unit at Warwick hospital (she herself is a midwife), and secondly youth activities at The Kenilworth Centre. Kate's husband Richard worked for the charity CORD who were Pat Ryan's charity when he was Mayor for the first golf day - quite a coincidence. £2897 was raised for The Mayors charities - a splendid result.
Sadly the weather was not the kindest, but after coffee & bacon rolls the 13 teams headed to the course for a shotgun start and battled their way around through rain, wind, sun and even a spot of hail.
Pictured below is the Mayor with our Captains Chis & Maggie along with Liz Brown & Jon Higgitt before they set off from the 1st tee.
A well earned 3 course dinner was enjoyed by all prior to the results, a raffle and an auction.
The winning team from Charles Peters are pictured here with the Mayor and also contained the player with the highest individual sore, Phil Jordan. Congratulations to them all.
As it was our 10th anniversary a cake was created and donated by Janice Eyre to be auctioned. It showcased the Mayor as a midwife, the town council crest as well as the KGC crest and the Mayors Day trophy - a real work of art...
