Rotary Club of Riccarton's charity golf tournament raises more than $25,000 for Cholmondeley

The Annual Cholmondeley Charity Golf Classic took place on 13 October at Templeton Golf Club in Christchurch. Over 160 golfers enjoyed ideal weather and course conditions, with playing fees and sponsorship money raising important funds for local charity, Cholmondeley Children's Centre.

2016 marked the 26th year of the event, which has raised over $650,000 for Cholmondeley since it began. The relationship between Cholmondeley and the Rotary Club of Riccarton dates back to the 1950s, with the club having supported the charity in various ways since that time.

Templeton Golf Club also gave its support to the children’s charity by hosting the event for the second time this year, and many other businesses sponsored holes or donated prizes. Prizes on the day included VIP tickets to a show of the winner's choice at Horncastle Arena (courtesy of Vbase), a Christchurch Casino $800 gaming voucher, and a Crusaders jersey signed by the 2016 team, donated by GIB.

A special feature of the tournament is that every player receives a prize. Rotary Club of Riccarton member and Chair of the Golf Committee, Jeff Gibson, says, "we're consistently told we are one of the friendliest tournaments out there."

Next year’s tournament is scheduled for Thursday 12 October 2017, with registrations of interest open now.
