What’s better than spending your day at a golf tournament under the sun with some friends? We’ll tell you: a golf tournament under the sun with some friends while also raising money that would be dedicated to a good cause. On Friday, September 4th, UK-based Willow Wood Hospice hosted a golf tournament at the Ashton Under Lyne Golf Club which, founded in 1913, Is one of the most picturesque golf courses in the area.
There were 17 teams of 4 golfers participating in the fundraising. The day kicked off with golfers enjoying refreshments to prepare themselves for the tournament ahead, and the many competitions along the length of the day. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, dinner didn’t take place after the event as usual and the winners were notified after the event, but participants still could enjoy lovely golf day for a good cause. Some lucky participants were the winners of some luxury-themed golf prizes that were given away as part of a raffle. Participants only had to pay £300 to enter, proceeds from which were donated to Willow Wood, which is still dedicated to helping the people of Tameside and Glossop. £3000 were fundraised during the event for Willow Wood Hospice which provides free services for patients and their families.
