Merley Paper Golf Day Published 28/08/2014 Friday 22nd August witnessed the 19th annual Merley Paper Golf Day held at Stocks Golf Club near Tring. It was a fantastic day attended by 54 talented golfers including the head pro from East Herts GC Danny Field & ladies European Tour pro Hannah Burke. A 12am shotgun start signalled the beginning of a fantastic day with last team finishing at 4pm. The weather gods were defiantly smiling on us for the day The evenings festivities started at 17:30 with a stunning three course meal prepared and served by the Stocks catering team accompanied by a free bar. Once consumed the traditional £10 note raffle took place, prizes included a Amazon Kindle Fire HD, champagne and a BMW watch, this was followed by a game of sit down stand up Bingo which everyone paid £5 to participate in. Here is a picture of this years winner Keith Willett (Bandit) with our directors Allan & Barry. The very first Merley Golf Day was won by non other than Ian Poulter who shot -6 to secure the famous Merley claret jug in 1995. Since then many have strived to to have their names added to the coveted cup. This year we raised £4,200 which was split between- Cura, Starlight - Make A Wish Appeal, The Trussell Trust, Stevenage Borough Disability Youth Squad and NASS. That brings Merley’s Golf Day charity donations total to a whopping £60,000. We have booked Stocks Golf Club for next year and are already planning the 20th Merley Golf Day which we are sure will be another big success. Suggestions for any charities that you think would benefit from a donation would be greatly received, please let us know via DM on Facebook or tweet us @MerleyPaper.
