On Thursday 26th May 2016 the club held its 29th annual golf AM-AM and Sports Dinner at Hessle Golf Club and Willerby Manor respectively, and this year the twenty-eight teams reported the course to be in excellent condition as they completed their rounds of golf.
“The charities that will benefit from today are The Daisy Appeal, Yorkshire Cancer Research, The RAF Association, and other Local Charities” advised Richard Longthorp, Past President of Howden Rotary Club.
"Early indications are that the event has raised £7,200 for the charities which is a great testament to the goodwill and generosity of all those companies and individuals who have supported the event and to whom we are extremely grateful” added Richard “we would also like to thank The Hessle Golf Club, Willerby Manor, and everyone who assisted in any way in making the day so successful”
After the dinner all the guests were thoroughly entertained by the speakers, former England Rugby Union player, Jeff Probyn, who was followed by Liverpool comedian Denny Waters.
The team from Spaldington Golf Centre, comprising Chris Mowforth, Roger Spink, David Greenwood and Andrew Moss, scooped the first prize in the men’s competition and received the Jubilee Cup which was donated by Tony Horncastle OBE, from speaker Jeff Probyn. Runners up were Riverside Peter Stockill with the Farmstar Limited in third place. Bonus Electrical Ladies won the ladies completion.
Riverside Peter Stockill team golfer Andy Woodhead was on great form having a very successful day winning prizes for both the “longest drive” on the 15th fairway and “nearest the pin” on the 16th green!
Next year’s event is scheduled for Thursday 25th May 2017, so put the date in your diary!
