When members of the Chesfield Downs Golf and Country Club seniors section set out to help two good causes, they had fundraising down to a tee.
The annual charity day hosted by seniors captain Michael Homfray-Cooper was supported by more than 132 players.
Some were members of the senior section, but players from other clubs in the area also supported the event at the Graveley course.
A halfway house served food and drink prepared by ladies of the senior section, who also served the refreshments.
Players enjoyed 18 holes of golf before a two course carvery lunch prepared by the Chesfield Downs catering team.

There were team prizes for the first and second teams, as well as a prize for the best score by a member and a guest and for nearest the pin and longest drive.
A raffle on arrival and a table raffle for prizes donated by local businesses, individuals, and the club helped produce a bumper profit of £4,400.
