THE ANNUAL captains’ drive-in at Hindhead Golf Club saw the official hand over to a new team of captains for 2018.
It also saw the end of a year of fundraising, with more than £33,000 donated to charities.
During 2017 a number of events organised by the captains, and supported by members, resulted in £28,602 being raised for the club captain’s charities the Meath Epilepsy Charity in Godalming and the Peter Alliss Masters Powered Wheelchair Crusade.
Money was raised from a combination of raffles, a Pro-Am day, and the Farnham Lions charity golf day which raised £10,000.
In addition, £4,550 was raised for the Simon Trust, the ladies’ captain’s charity for 2017. Outgoing ladies’ captain Samantha Dodd presented a cheque to Sally Lawrence, the chairman of the Simon Trust.
Sally said: “The Simon Trust is extremely grateful to the ladies of Hindhead Golf Club.”
