Burty (Andrew) managed to get his name on all 4 of our `prize` hole markers but only ended up winning the booby prize for the Shortest Drive on the 1st hole, he bagged himself a sleeve of LONG DISTANCE golf balls.It would have took some explaining if he'd won shortest and longest drives in the same round.
If there was a prize for the most fines, Burty would have won that as well, by a mile.
Thanks to entry fees, side bets, sweepstakes, and some very entertaining fines we managed to raise £303 which will go to Parkinsons UK.
Thank you to all who took part.
