Local golfers gathered at Alnwick Castle Golf Club on Saturday 10th August to take part in a ‘Texas Scramble’ charity match in aid of The Stephen Carey Fund.
Organised by Shilbottle man Geordie Brown a total of 47 entrants each made donations to the fund in order to play in the tournament with additional monies also being raised by hole sponsorships.
Almost perfect weather saw the various teams tee off shortly after 2:00pm and several hours later with all the teams safely back at the club house the winning team was announced:
Winners: S Toole, D Sordy, T Fairfax and M Hodgson
Total monies raised for The Stephen Carey Fund from the event is £1,049.75 and Dougie McEwan, on behalf of the fund, said ‘this event has exceeded our expectations, we simply didn’t expect this many entrants and completely underestimated the enthusiasm to play in the tournament. We can’t thank enough the organisers, entrants and Alnwick Castle Golf Club for making this event was it was’.
