GOLFERS again braved the rain to take part in an Isabel Hospice annual fundraiser.

This year's Challenge Cup Golf Day - the 11th - hosted by WGC Golf Club on Thursday raised about �10,000.

The first team prize on the day went to Absolute Blinds, who scored 125. They won a four-ball at Knebworth Golf and Country Club which they generously donated back to the auction, held later in the evening.

The second team prize went to The Davies 'A' team with a score of 119, closely followed by Cereal Partners UK with a score of 118. The second prize was crystal glasses for each team member, donated by Godshaw Jewellers and the third prize was a four-ball at The Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club.

Nearest the pin on the 18th, The Warwick McCredie Trophy, was won by Garven Marlin from Team SG12.

The ladies longest drive was won by Deborah Osman from Team Dash with Neil Culverd winning the men's prize from The Staples Team.
