THIS year’s annual Katharine House Hospice (KHH) ladies golf challenge attracted 140 players.
A total of 35 teams of four represented the cream of ladies’ golf in Staffordshire as they took to the course at Brocton Hall Golf Club.
This 12th KHH event produced a wonderful day of golf for the ladies taking part and also raised £3,800 for the Hospice.
The event was organised by a committee of lady golfers who volunteer their time to organise this popular competition for KHH.
There was fierce competition with the top three teams all returning the same number of points, 77, therefore it was down to how the teams performed in the back nine.
After countback, the winning team was from Ingestre Park, comprising Bridget Locke, Caroline Corrigan, Alison Taylor and Mary Tenner.
In second spot was the quartet of Lynn Davis, Irene Todd, Sylvia James and Gill Evans who represented from Bridgnorth, Droitwich and Stourbridge golf clubs.
Completing the main team awards, in third spot, were Lesley Simmons, Susan Brindley, Ann Jones and Gill Leese from The Chase Golf Club, Penkridge.
Hospice fund-raiser Kath Hindmarsh said: “The ladies were representative of a wide range of local golf clubs, all coming together to help raise funds for the Hospice.
“Organised by a committee of local ladies, the event highlights how local groups and organisations help us in so many ways to carry on caring for local people.
“We cannot thank the golf committee enough for their support over the years. We are also extremely grateful to Brocton Hall Golf club for allowing us to use their superb course.
“The golf day raised over £3,800 and we are really thankful of all the support we have received.”
This golf challenge is one of the ways in which the Hospice is celebrating its 25th year of providing free care for the people of the region.
Since its beginnings as a volunteer-led Hospice at Home service back in 1989, Katharine House has grown to provide a range of vital free care services for local people.
