Five Rounds In A Day... plus the 19th hole (of course!) 

Four-ball complete marathon golf fundraiser at Wrag Barn
 
Golf from sunrise to sunset raised over 1,000 for charity this week at Wrag Barn Golf Club.
 
Club captain Ivor Whinney and three other members - aptly named Ivor's Big Guns - completed an incredible 90 holes in just over under 16 hours in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care.
 
The group teed off the first at 4.15am and finally holed the last putt just after 8pm - before heading to the clubhouse for a well-earned drink at the 19th hole!
 
Well deserved, indeed!

Donations are gratefully received via the Just Giving link below.
