Golf Tournament 2016
Cockermouth Golf Club generous hosts for the Rotary tournament.
All 18 holes attracted sponsoring support when the Rotary Club of Cockermouth held its annual tournament at Cockermouth Golf course in September 2016.
Rotarian Jimmy Wood said: "We had a tremendous response from local businesses who supported us by sponsoring a hole or by providing top quality raffle prizes. And it is a fantastic gesture from Cockermouth Golf Club and its members who support us every year. All 18 holes were sponsored..for the first time ever...during the history of our competition." 120 golfers took part in a four player team competition which was open to ladies, men and juniors. The day raised £1509 funds to assist the club in its charitable activities.
After a bit of a damp start the weather improved and most players were able to enjoy a rain free round in fairly warm conditions.
