With clear skies and glorious sunshine shining on the idyllic Dyrham Country Club, 96 golfers teamed up to compete in the much-awaited golf tournament all within social distancing guidelines.

The event, hosted by the dedicated 18 Golf Committee, Joint Chairmen, Ronnie Gottlieb OBE Michael Lubliner and Michael Lerner, raised over £40,000 for Chai’s Home Support Service.

The Committee Chairmen commented:

“We are extremely grateful to Dyrham Park County Club for going above and beyond to do all they could do to ensure that our annual Golf Tournament could still take place, especially during these extraordinary times.

A huge thanks to the wonderful generosity of our main sponsors Wilson Wright and the Kirsh Foundation and all the other loyal supporters who contributed to the success of the day. The weather couldn’t have been kinder, the atmosphere was tremendous and the golf was of a very high standard. We are already overwhelmed with the positive feedback we have received and are looking forward to next years Club 18 Golf Day.”
