FRIDAY, July 4 was the fifth annual charity golf day competition that Builth Wells Rotary has hosted.

This was held at Builth Wells Golf Club with the kind co-operation of Simon Edwards, PGA professional.

The aim of the day was to encourage teams locally and from as far as Newport, to compete for a varying array of quality prizes and awards, whilst raising money for nominated charities.

Some of the awards were quite diverse, ie ‘nearest the pin’, longest drive, most unusual ball position and not forgetting ‘best dressed’.

The charities supported are Shelter Box, which provides a survival box able to sustain a family of 10 in disaster torn areas. Also, Polio Plus helping to eradicate polio throughout the world and numerous local charities.

The success of the day relies on sponsorship from local businesses, which have again been very generous this year.

Prize giving in the clubhouse followed a hot and tiring but immensely enjoyable day. The ladies team were overall winners.
