A Charity Golf Day was hosted at Whiston Golf Club last Wednesday (December 29) in memory of former Cheadle Town Mayor and councillor Ian Whitehouse.
Event organiser Ken Horleston said: “With all the proceeds going to Prostate Cancer, 11 teams lined up at Whiston Hall Golf Club.
“Ian Whitehouse, who was known as Mappy to all his friends and colleges, supported Prostate Cancer for many a year, raising thousands of pounds for the charity.
“This event has always been well-supported over the years and this year was no exception. Within a few hours of announcing the event, the entry list was full.
“With Bacon baps and coffee on arrival and a hot buffet laid on after the event, all we needed was the weather to be in our favour, but the fog and rain persisted until the first eight holes had been played.”
Ken, who lives in Kingsley Holt, continued: “Eleven teams of four competed over a much improved Whiston Hall Golf Course, with some impressive golf being played.
“All the trophy’s were kindly donated by B&L Electrical Servicers Ltd, with N Seabridge, M Elliott, P Lawton and P Heath, taking the honours with a team score of 100 points.
“The second place went to P Hackney, J Birks, J Foster and J Worrall, with 92 points, and third place went to R Bassett, S Cox, G. Martin and P Allcock with 92 points, these two games going down to the last six hole to separate the two teams. There was a nearest the pin prize on the par three 13th hole which went to K Finney.
“A putting competition inside the Hall finished off a very successful day, and thanks to all the participants, the Prostate Cancer Charity will receive £700.
“A big thank you to Whiston Hall for donating all the green fees to Prostate Cancer.”
