Golfers put residents to the ‘fore’ when they took part in DAMHA’s annual golf day recently.
Staged in memory of former DAMHA Chief Executive Gordon Gray, a keen golfer who died in 2017, this year’s event saw eight teams of four players teeing off at Beamish Golf Club.
There was a cash prize and trophy for the team which scored the highest points using the Stableford system. This was won by South Shields-based Premier Property Repairs Ltd. There were also team runner-up prizes and individual prizes for the longest drive on a par 5 and nearest the pin on a par 3.
After each team had played, participants sat down for a two-course meal.
The golf day raised £690, which is a record amount for DAMHA.
Paul Mullis, DAMHA Chief Executive said: “We’re delighted to have raised so much money for our residents’ social welfare fund, which will enable them to enjoy activities and social events.
“We would like to thank all the teams who took part and gave so generously on the day, as well as those who donated prizes.
“Our thanks also go to Beamish Golf Club for once again putting on such a great event.
“Gordon used to love taking part in our golf day so it’s fitting that we now stage it in his memory and that it continues to go from strength to strength.”
