Today we played our first father and sons golf tournament to raise money for the British Forces Foundation. The first round was a family affair with fathers and sons taking alternate shots over the nine holes. The winners of this competition were the Danes (Alex and his father) who very impressively scored 20 points over the 9 holes to win by a 2 point margin over Ben Sweeney and his father.
After a short brunch in the mansion we then set out to play the second nine holes. This time it was fathers against sons in a match play competition. After some very tense games the fathers won one match (by one hole), the sons won one match (by one hole) with the final game being tied. The result therefore was a tie.
We headed to the Cricketers for refreshment and the prize giving and were very fortunate that throughout the whole day we managed to avoid any rain.
Thank you for everyone for taking part – we raised £125 for the charity – a great start for the fundraising for the term.
