Rotary Club of King’s Lynn’s hosts Charity Golf Day at Middleton Hall Golf Club
It is every golfer’s dream to get a hole-in-one and it proved prestigious for Darren Naughton at the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn’s Charity Golf Day.
His prize was for even more golf, this time a three-day luxury golfing holiday in Portugal for two in a five-star hotel, with a car and many extra’s thrown in.
Naughton’s team was one of the 26 teams that took part in the annual event, held at the Middleton Golf Course at the end of last week and this is the first time in the event’s history that a hole-in-one has been recorded.
The week leading up to Friday’s big golf event had seen some incredibly persistent rain and it was even raining on the morning of the match, causing a big headache for organiser Steve Roberts.
Despite the wet start, the forecast held good and every player and team turned out to support the event.
By the time the match started, the sun had come out, giving the players a great day on the course.
The Rotary Club of King’s Lynn has organised this event for more than eight years.
And, with a record entry this time around, this year it is expected that in excess of £6,500 will have been raised to support local charities and good causes.
Ironically the winners of the King’s Lynn Cup went to the Robson Construction team, of which its leader was the event’s organiser Roberts himself.
The ladies winning team was led by Julie Proctor who received the trophy.
Rotary Club president Pip Rippengill thanked the players, sponsors and helpers who contributed to making the event such a success.
Rippengill spoke of the many charities and good causes that the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn had supported during the year.
