The Centurion Golf Club near St Albans has raised £25,000 for Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

The amount was raised by competitors for the Rick Garg Memorial Trophy.

The trophy is named after club member Rick Garg, who died last August after suffering a heart attack on the course.

Fellow club member, Rick Wilson, said: “Rick was the epitome of a gentleman and he was a much-loved member of the community here at Centurion Club.

“The memorial tournament was a fitting way to remember everything that he achieved throughout his life.”
