Hankley Common Golf Day 2019

Hankley Common Golf Day 2019

“The HAC Golf Day is one of the mainstays of our fundraising efforts each year and May 2019 did not disappoint.

The weather, so often our friend, decided to have a bad hair day. That however did not dampen the spirits of the 71 golfers who turned out to support us, a mixture of our old stalwarts and some newbies, all keen to test their skills on the great course at Hankley Common.

Golf over and back in the Clubhouse, well fed and drinks in hand, Adger Brown, our regular comedian led the players and supporters through his unique blend of risqué, inappropriate and just plain funny jokes before hosting the well-supported auction.

Top golfers in 2019 were the team of G. Talbot, M. Adams, W. Bridge & P. McNabe with a highly credible 100 Points, 10 points better than their nearest rivals.

Pink Ball winners were A. Green, C. Gunther, S. Spink & G. Grosse with 30 Points. Nearest the Pin awards went to C. Gunther (hole 2), P. O’Brien (hole 7) and J. Neville (hole 8).

We were fortunate this year in having Marshall Eaton as our main sponsors. Not only were they generous to the extreme, but also turned out in numbers to enjoy the day, led by Simon Marshall himself, helping us to achieve a surplus of over £17,000, a fabulous result. We wish them well for all their businesses.

Other sponsors on the day included Pivot, KM Baker Street, Spring Construction, Veryon Scaffolding, Simon English, Arford Roofing, Charles Aldred, DJK Electrical, Gold Station, Hogs Back Associates, Hamilton Brickworks, Peasmarsh Joinery, Raffetty Plastering, Sandrock Building, Technivo, Trevellyan Developments, Andrew Winch Plumbing, Art for Investment, Gavin Bailey, The Hedgehogs and Roger Goscomb.

We’ll be back at Hankley Common next year on Wednesday 06 May for the 2020 HAC Golf Day. Hope you can join us.”
