On Saturday Denver Golf Club held a competition to mark the 40th anniversary of the end of the Falklands War and raised £900 for the Royal British Legion.

On a warm, sunny day almost 50 members, some of whom are ex-servicemen and women, battled for a range of prizes donated by club members.

Ping provided golf shirts and the club’s owners donated a special camouflaged golf bag complete with a Union flag, won by Ian Palfrey, former member of the RAF Regiment and a participant in Desert Storm.
