Charity golf day sets new record entry

Belton Park’s 26th Charity Am Am continued to go from strength to strength by attracting a record entry of forty-eight teams.

Sponsored by the Eden Wine Bar and Specsavers (Grantham) Ltd, this year’s event raised in excess of £7,000 for its chosen charities, the St Barnabas Trust (Grantham) and English & Welsh Blind Golf.

Blessed with great weather, and a course in excellent condition, the day’s golf included an eighteen-hole Am Am competition plus a nine-hole Texas Scramble, both of which were keenly contested and resulted in some impressive scores.

Later, an auction conducted by Tony Snarey attracted lively bidding for a number of sport related lots and raised in excess of £3,000. These lots included the opportunity to play golf on the highly prestigious Royal Birkdale and Wentworth golf courses, both of which fetched over £500. Other attractive lots included executive box tickets to watch a Manchester United match, and golf at Stoke Poges, of James Bond Goldfinger fame.

To conclude the evening a Draw sponsored by The Reindeer Inn, Long Bennington raised a record £650 for St Barnabas Trust.
