A best individual score of 37 points came from Neil Lobos, with Ross Kemp and Billy Allan winning the longest drive and nearest-the-pin prizes respectively.

A post-golf auction and raffle helped raise £900 for the charity that helps people with MS and other neurological conditions.

Fundraiser Paul Bishop was full of praise for the golfers and all the club’s staff. He said: “It was great to see players coping well with the tricky conditions on a course that was in tip-top shape. Credit should also go to Jim Abraham and his team for looking after us and making us feel welcome in these tricky times. We hope to be back here next year.”
