Golfing event puts charity on course to benefit

Texas scramble was the format and the competitors were, how do we put this politely, of all abilities and from across the Gloucestershire business community.

Friends, customers and partners of architects Roberts Limbrick bravely stepped tee-ward in groups of three or four to play the golfing team format.

Taking place at the initially sunny Puckrup Hall Hotel and Golf Club, Tewkesbury, 'competitors' did not let deteriorating weather conditions dampen good spirits over 18 holes.

Whatever appeared on the collective scorecards at the end will remain for some a closely guarded secret, for others it saw them receive appropriate accolades and applause.

But all can all take heart that their efforts rounded up to a £500 total for a much-loved charity.

"We are absolutely delighted with the success of our first ever golf day. The sun didn't shine quite as brightly as we had hoped, but the conditions didn't appear to dampen anybody's enthusiasm," said Jo Roberts, a director at the Gloucester-headquartered firm.

"We were so grateful for the fantastic support received from our clients, colleagues and friends in joining us for this event and helping to raise a considerable amount of money for our chosen charity The James Hopkins Trust."
