GOLFERS got into the swing of things for a tournament to raise money to help find missing people.
Thirty-one players took part in The Elliot Lee Charity Golf Classic at Pinner Hill Golf Club in Southview Road, Pinner, on Friday, May 18, raising £650.
Organiser Paul Jaszynski said: “It was a good day. It went really well.
“We had prizes for first, second and third, longest drive, closest drive to the pin and a hole-in-one competition on the 11th hole.”
Paul, who ran last year’s London Marathon in aid of the Missing People charity, carries out public relations for the Elliot Lee estate agents and when the firm set about looking for a fundraising event, he suggested a golf tournament to benefit the same good cause.
Teams of three or four began teeing off at 9.45am for a full round and the last of them finished six hours later, before a raffle and sporting memorabilia auction was held in the clubhouse.
The Divot and the Three Pitchmarks scooped the top prize in the Stableford scoring system.
“It was our first golf classic and it went really well,” said Paul.
“The weather was mild and a bit blustery, which adds something to the competition. Lots of people said they’d definitely tell their friends and family and hopefully next year it will be bigger, perhaps with 60 or 100 players, and it will raise a lot more money for charity.”
