THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION AND HELP 4 HEROES AT VISTABELLA

0

The competition was to raise funds for the Royal British Legion and Help 4 Heroes.

There were TWO separate pairs competitions held on the day with shotgun starts starts at 8.15am and 2.00pm for in excess of 110 golfers.

As you can imagine this was somewhat of a logistical nightmare as the afternoon players arrived at the course at approximately the same time as the morning players completed their rounds and there were cards,raffle tickets,meal tickets and money everywhere but with some excellent organisation all went as well as could be expected and all players started on time which was something of a feat considering what was going on!
