Charity Golf Day for Parkinson’s raises over £1,000

 Published on: 22nd May 2019   |   By: Charlie Reynolds   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Chorleywood Golf Club raised £1,400 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust at the Charity Golf day earlier this year. 

12 teams teed off at the club on March 29 with players coming from Chorleywood, Moor Park, Sandy Lodge and other local clubs. 

As the sun shined at the start of the day, the teams dispersed across Chorleywood Common to prepare for the shotgun start at 9am. 

The event, which was in honour of the co-founder and former president of CPT, Tom Isaacs, featured players who had known Tom, some of whom even attended school with him. 

Fittingly, the winning which compromised of Simon Fox, Jeremy Ensor, Andy Lambert and Mark Mulholland, were good friends of Toms. 

There were prizes to be won throughout the day, including Nearest the Pin, Straightest Drive and of course first, second and third place. 

Players were enormously pleased that Jane Isaacs, Tom’s mother, joined them for the day with a team of Moor Park Ladies. 

Club members were extremely generous in donating items for a raffle to end this wonderful fundraising event, which raised a fantastic £1423.93 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). 

Will Cook, CEO of CPT who took part in the golf day said: “Chorleywood did the charity proud: this was a great day with golf played in good weather and in good spirits.  And the final figure raised was pleasing: thank you again to all involved.”

CPT would also like to thank Jane Bowler and Katie Bishop who ran the day with help from the club secretary, Peter Rodwell, Chorleywood Golf Club and all who attended and contributed to the event.
