Captain’s Charity Day raises £4,300

I’d like to give my thanks and appreciation to all those who contributed to a very successful Captain’s Charity Day in support of my chosen charity Macmillan Cancer Support. We raised £4,300 on the day which is a fantastic achievement, and I’d like to congratulate Brian Foden for organising another incredibly successful day. Friday was Brian’s 22nd Captain’s Charity Day and he has raised over £85,000 in that time - a fantastic achievement.

My thanks also go to: all the players on the day for contributing to the golf, and for their generosity in the raffle and auction, all the individuals and companies who donated golf and raffle prizes and items for the auction, Chris Hoyland and the catering team and the greenstaff for preparing the course.

14 teams took part in a very enjoyable golf day and evening meal. The team prize winners were Trevor Rathbone (Vice Captain), Bill and Steve Bennett and Luke Foden.

I’ve set myself a target of raising £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support during my Captaincy year and my next fundraising event is a 72 golf hole challenge on Friday 22nd June starting at sunrise.  More information will be in another article on the website, but for those supporters who want to donate now, to help reach my event target of £2,500, I’ve set up a JustGiving page:

AEGC - Open House on Sunday 3 June

A gorgeous sunny day on Sunday 3 June was Open House at Alderley Edge Golf Club, with the opportunity for anyone - local residents, members, friends and families, to drop in to sample what their local, friendly golf club had to offer.

Visitors of all ages took part in a number of activities set up on the course: taster sessions with Charles, our PGA Professional, fun target golf chipping and putting and visitors were able to try out the indoor golf coaching swing room.  And, of course, a BBQ was available on the patio outside the clubhouse.

There were opportunities to look at the Clubhouse facilities - the Edge View Suite for hire with excellent catering options, as well as a chance to hear about the variety of membership options available for all ages and levels of golf experience.

Gwyn Holt, the main organiser of the Open House was very pleased to have the support of all the volunteers and staff who made the day a success.
