Prestbury Gold Day 2018


Stunning sunshine made this year’s East Cheshire Hospice Charity Golf Day a sizzling success.

Sunshine bathed Prestbury Golf course throughout the day for the annual event which this year raised a record £9,100.

The fourball betterball event was once again organised by John Davies, Director of Mactex Properties Ltd, and former golf professional Nigel Preston.

John was involved in the first tournament in 1984 and revived the event four years ago after a short break.

The winners from 22 teams were the home team from Prestbury Golf Club led by Richard Johnson and his wife Pam and team-mates John and Margaret Simons who came in with a high score of 93 points.

John Davies of Macclesfield said the day was another great success with teams enjoying the warm sunshine and all were rewarded with refreshments and a superb meal after the golf rounds.  

John said: “The event is a real team effort which takes a great deal of planning. I’d like to thank Matt Beresford and Amanda Cross, from Sphere UK Print, who helped with the programme along with Amanda Soane and Sarah Hancock, from Thorneycroft Solicitors who once again helped with the raffle.

“Roll on next year!”.
