Isabel Hospice is encouraging Hertfordshire men and women to sign up for a fundraising golf day.

The event will be held on October 19 at Welwyn Garden City Golf Club.

It costs £350 to enter a team of four.

Tea, coffee and bacon rolls will be provided upon arrival for all Isabel Hospice golfers, setting players up for a full day of great golf.

On return to the clubhouse, players will enjoy a two-course lunch, followed by prize giving, a raffle and auction.

On August 31, Isabel Hospice celebrated its 21st anniversary Ladies Open at Brookmans Park Golf Club.

Congratulations went to Michelle Bereaux who had a “hole in 1” on the Par 3 4th hole, which was a first in the 21 years of the tournament.

Organiser Jan Leggetter said: “We sincerely thank the lady Captain, Jane Robinson and her ladies plus the management of Brookmans Park Golf Club for supporting our worthy cause.

“Ian Jelley, the professional, provided goody bags for all the players and Brian Hall, the volunteer photographer, did a magnificent job capturing the excitement of the day.”

The winners on the day were

1st Place: Sarah Terry and Helen Hayward with 43 pts

2nd Place: Michelle Bereaux and Susi Hyne also with 43 pts

3rd Place: Christine Hutchins and Dolores Hissey with 38 pts

“Nearest the Pin” was Sally Brown and the “Longest Drive” was won by Sue Bradbury.

The event sponsors included “She Studio” from Brookmans Park and Nigel and Dorothy Hamilton and Kees and Gonnie Bokmans

The day raised over £1,700 for the Isabel Hospice, which could cover the cost of three weeks of the Hospice at Home team, caring for people in their own homes.
