A 24 hour golf challenge hosted by Princes Risborough Golf Club on Saturday 7th until Sunday 8th of May was a complete success with six amateur golfers completing 26 miles, 144 holes and 8 rounds of 18. They were led by the Club Manager, Nick Shaw and together raised over £2000 for the local The Rural Community Defibrillator Group charity, which has been greatly received and will be used to place defibrillators in rural areas in order to save lives.
The Challengers opted to wear garish and brightly coloured golf attire for the event which made for rapturous applause and laughter when they presented themselves! They set off at 11:45am and after a steady start, a few obligatory drinks at the beer festival seemed to speed up the pace as the sun went down. At 9pm, the daylight was gone and the golfers switched to the Night Golf equipment which posed a completely new experience with lit up balls and tee’s.
A Family Fun day took place on the Sunday where visitors enjoyed local stalls, a bouncy castle and the opportunity to watch the challengers roll in on their last round. They putted the last hole at 11:45am and all looked rather weathered and exhausted as they were handed a well-earned drink.
