After the 8th golf day we had raised £99,575, just short of the £1ook! The golf day on the 18th of September raised £8,200. Our TOTAL is now £107,775
It was a slightly different golf day to previous years due to the pandemic. It would have been extremely easy to just cancel and wait a year. We decided to go ahead and it was well worth it, the Texas scramble format was retained and proved very popular.
116 golfers played, only 8 less than 2019 with sponsors continuing their fantastic support of the day.
The winners at their 5th attempt were the team from DSBS - plumbers from Torquay,
led by owner Dan Baker, his team of Harry Carpanini, Scott Henry, and Duncan Grey
won with a score of 54.5
System 6 Kitchens teams 1 & 2 came in close behind with 57.3 & 57.9 respectively.
Past winners Charles Darrow were 4th and a new entry Torbay Financial Services 5th.
Sophie & Krystal from Mantracom manned the 14th hole serving refreshments and challenging the teams with a chipping contest.
Golfers had the opportunity to win a £10,000 System6 Kitchen on the 8th hole - still no winner, over 1,000 attempts over the 8 years.
Coot Scootz offered one of their Electric Scooters for a hole in one on all the par 3's. Sherwoods were offering Titliest ProV1 balls if players could land their ball in the Sherwood Circle - a very blustery wind put paid to most attempts.
The final challenge on the golf course was the opportunity to beat Ladies European Tour professional Sophie Keech in a Beat the Pro competition - only 14 were successful.
After their round of golf - teams again had a go at the SNOOTING competition (another of Martins dreamed up ideas!) a concoction of putting and snooker, a lot of fun.
Rory the therapy assistance dog also turned up to meet the golfers, pictured with Martin
The 9th Charlies Trophy will be staged again at Dainton Park on Friday July 23rd 2021
