First captain’s charity day on new course

The captain’s charity golf day at Parley Golf Centre raised more than £500 for Macmillan Caring Locally.

It’s the first time this event has been held on the new course at the centre opposite Bournemouth Airport.

Teams of three played a ‘Texas Scamble’ tournament which was won by Stuart Freeman, Steven Marshall and Rosalie Freeman.

Club captain Tony Pomeroy presented them with their winners’ medals.

There was also a ‘crazy putting’ competition held on the recently-opened practice and short-game area.

Daryl Dampney, who manages the centre, said: “The new course is bedding down nicely and everyone enjoyed the round.

“It was good fun but more importantly we well exceeded our £500 target for Macmillan Caring Locally.

“Since we have opened the new course and practice facilities we have seen a surge of people turning up for a round as well as an increase in membership.”

Macmillan Caring Locally, based in Christchurch, is a charity that specialises end of life care and gives support to families, carers and friends.
