This year’s annual Paviors’ Charity Golf Day was held on Tuesday 19 July 2016 at Moor Park Golf Club.
The Harry Colt-designed course is listed in the top 100 golf courses in England and, on the day, proved to be in immaculate condition with lightning-fast greens. The competition attracted 19 teams of four who, after some light refreshments, teed-off in blazing-hot conditions with temperatures during the day exceeding 35 degrees. The competition was based on stableford-scoring off three-quarters handicap, with the best three scores counting for each hole. The winning team amassed a very creditable 107 points.
The golf was followed by a three-course meal, entertainment, and the prize-giving. An auction was then held, which raised £9,000. Altogether, the event raised over £20,000 for the Paviors’ and Master’s charities. The Company relies heavily on money raised from this event to enable the continued funding of the London Highways Academy of Excellence.
