Golfers’ coastal challenge

GOLFERS clubbed together to raise £5,000 for the children’s charity of rugby after heading to the coast to take part in a thrilling golfers coastal challenge tournament.

No fewer than 18 teams took to the fairways of Blackpool North Shore Golf Club for the competition, which was organised by Wooden Spoon Lancashire.

Although the course itself was in excellent shape, players had to do battle with the elements as strong seaside winds made for some challenging conditions.

The keenly-contested tournament was eventually won by a team from Worcester Bosch Group, which returned home with the Wooden Spoon Trophy.

Wooden Spoon Lancashire Chairman Martin Long praised everyone involved in the “successful event” and extended special thanks to the competition’s sponsors Hargreave Hale.
