Foxbridge Golf Club in Plaistow was once again the setting for Haslemere Museum’s annual fundraising golf day. The successful event, now in its sixth year, attracted 15 teams of golfers who turned out to play a competitive round of 18 holes. The teams of four battled it out in the fairways to try and claim the top honours on the day, the Haslemere Museum Golf Trophy. The Old Thorns Seniors – Charlie Crawford, Chris Grimes, Graham Heath and John Slocombe were victorious. It was an excellent day enjoyed by all with £2,000 raised for the Museum.
The Mayor of Haslemere, Councillor Sahran Abeysundara, presented the Museum with a salver for the longest drive competition won by Max Holloway and Museum Chairman Melanie Odell presented a salver for the nearest the pin won by Julian Anstee.
Melanie Odell, Chairman of Haslemere Museum said: “It was a fantastic day, both on and off the course, with great camaraderie and luckily the rain stayed away. We are very grateful to all the golfers who supported the fundraising day and of course our sponsors for making such a great contribution. The whole day was very well organised thanks to the professionalism and hospitality of everyone at Foxbridge Golf Club, who ensured everything ran so smoothly.”
Sponsors of holes on the day were – GU27, SportsLocker, Chandlers, Sheen Botanical Labels, Cockerill Shoes, Andrew P Cundy, Clarke Gammon Wellers, Venturi Vision, Haslemere Town Council.
