Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Town Mayor’s annual golf day which was due to be held on 21st April has been cancelled. We would like to thank all those companies and individuals who initially supported this usually very successful day and we look forward to seeing you on the course in 2021. A provisional date of Tuesday 19th April 2021 has been booked.
The Mayor’s Charity Golf Day last year was held on Tuesday 30th April 2019 at Harleyford Golf Club.
There was a full house of competitors, with 24 teams taking part. “It was a glorious day’s golf,” Mayor Chris Funnell said. “Everyone enjoyed their time with us, both the day on the course and the great dinner, with raffle prizes and a silent auction. I want to say a big thank you to all our sponsors and to everyone who took part.”
The overall winners on the day were The Awesome Foursome, who are the first all ladies’ team to win this trophy.
A new competition trophy this year, The Frank Sweatman Memorial Trophy, was awarded in honour of the late Past Town Mayor Frank Sweatman. Frank initiated the Mayor’s Golf Day back in 2004 and it has since raised significant funds for the various Mayors’ charities. Frank’s daughter Joanne presented the team who came second: Dude, Where’s my Par? with the trophy.
The Mayor’s charity this year has been raising funds to support ways of delivering mental health support for Marlow’s young people. The event has raised £6,000.
