Friday 10th July saw a host of talented golfers gather to participate in the 2015 Darjeeling Cup in the sweltering heat of Pontefract Golf course.
We are still finalising the accounts for the day, but together with generous donations we anticipate that we will have raised very close to £5,000, which will go a great way to support our activities in the coming year.
This year’s event attracted quite a few new players as well as many well-known friendly faces. Particular thanks to Deana,Sarah,Carol for fighting it out amongst the men!
Many congratulations to John Bagshaw – the 2015 winner of the Darjeeling Cup with a score of 38 points; as well as retaining the Darjeeling Cup, John won his own Scottish Quaich (traditional drinking cup of friendship), a Bottle Ancnoc Malt from the Knockddu Highland Distillery and a Four-ball at the famous Lindrick Club.
