On Friday 29th March, 12 teams teed off at Chorleywood Golf Club in support of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). With players hailing from Chorleywood, Moor Park, Sandy Lodge and other local clubs, the event was a great success and raised over £1,400.

The weather dealt a kind hand on the day; as the sun shone over the course it seemed like spring had made an early appearance.  The teams dispersed across the Chorleywood Common to start from their various holes and the shotgun (virtually) sounded at 9.30. There were prizes to be won throughout they day, including Nearest the Pin, Straightest Drive and of course 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Following some close competition, the winning team (pictured below) was comprised of Simon Fox, Jeremy Ensor, Andy Lambert and Mark Mulholland, with Ruth Smith, Diane Brown, Janet Perez and Noreen Lynch from Pinner Hill coming in a close second.  Sarah Jolliffe and Ross Boardley took the prize for Nearest the Pin while Ross Boardley and Sophia Schnedler-Chen were named as Straightest Drivers.

Many of the players had known the late Tom Isaacs, co-founder and former President of CPT, some of whom even attended school with Tom. Fittingly, the winning team were good friends of his. Players were enormously pleased that Jane Isaacs, Tom’s mother, joined them for the day with a team of Moor Park Ladies. CPT would like to thank Jane Bowler and Katie Bishop who ran the day with help from the club secretary, Peter Rodwell, Chorleywood Golf Club and all who attended and contributed to the event. 

Club members were extremely generous in donating items for a raffle to end this wonderful fundraising event, which raised over £1,400 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). Will Cook, CEO of CPT who took part in the golf day said:

“Chorleywood did the charity proud: this was a great day with golf played in good weather and in good spirits.  And the final figure raised was pleasing: thank you again to all involved.”
