The fourth annual charity golf day at Whitwood Golf Club was a huge success.

The event on the 6,298 yard par 72 course at Altofts Lane featured eight teams which comprised Whitwood Golf Club members and former rugby league stars including ex Castleford players Alan Hardisty, Brian Lockwood and Bob Beardmore.

All the proceeds from the day went to the Rugby Football League Benevolent Fund.

The victorious team of Henry Oulton, Paul Waite, Will Denton and Darren Harris scored a magnificent 102 points.

Whitwood Golf Club committee member Beverley Flockton thanked local businesses for supporting the event including Xplore, Diggerland, Gravity, Golf Nation and Castleford Tigers for their kind donations towards a grand raffle.

The RFL Benevolent Fund donated tickets for the 2017 Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

The day was well supported by Whitwood GC members through raffle donations, and their help throughout the day.

Organisers were also grateful to Ann and Tarin Lockwood who provided a delicious hot buffet.

The grand raffle raised £530 and at the end the day a total of £1,900 was handed over to Steve Ball from the RFL Benevolent Fund. Half of the money raised will go directly to the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund to support local junior and community rugby clubs.
