Beaumond House Community Hospice is the winner at Newark Golf Club's annual Hole in One contest


By Connor Thompson


Golfers pursuing a dream shot helped raise more than £3,000 for Beaumond House Community Hospice.

Newark Golf Club’s annual hole in one day, organised by seniors’ captain Len Astill, raised £3,354.31 ­— £1,000 more than last year.

Mr Astill said: “It was one of the most popular events we have had in my time as captain.

“Everybody comes out and support the day, even though they know the chances [of getting a hole in one] are very slim.”

Maria Hewitt and Cathy Lowe from Beaumond House collected the cheque.

Cathy said: “It was an exceptional amount. Our relationship with the golf club has gone from strength to strength.”

More than 80 members took part in the sixth annual event, each giving £10 to attempt the feat.

At stake was a £30,000 Kia Stinger car, provided by Grantham dealer Victor Wood­ — but no one scored the hole-in-one at the 15th hole that would have won it.
