Batchwood Hall Golf Club has donated £750 to horticultural charity Earthworks, which works with the disabled and people with learning difficulties.
Money was raised by the 2016 senior’s team captain Ivor Thomas through competitions and events.
The club holds monthly competitions called Medals, where all players make a donation to the senior captain’s charity.
A raffle at the club’s annual away day, which this year was held at Gustard Wood, also helped to boost funds.
Another raffle was also held at the Christmas men’s and ladies’ tournament, with all proceeds going to Earthworks.
