Lanhydrock Golf Club ‘Care for Casualties & Royal British Legion’ Charity Golf Day, Friday 28th June 2013
A total of 144 golfers took part in what turned out to be a very exciting and close competition. The format of the day, teams of 4 playing Betterball Stableford, lent itself perfectly to ensuring a great deal of fun was had by all (certainly some more than others for those in 10am tee time team...you know who you are...) . The event was well supported by many of Lanhydrock’s members, friends, suppliers and local businesses. Graham & Clare would like to personally thank everyone who played a part in making the day a huge success.
In August 2012 their son Oliver, a Rifleman in 3 Rifles, was injured, thankfully not seriously, in an explosion whilst serving in Afghanistan. The family were overwhelmed with the immediate warmth & personal support given by the Rifles support system and cannot thank them enough. They feel honoured to be able to make a small gesture of their heartfelt appreciation in the form of the golf day.
Congratulations go to the winning team of Martin Nicholas, Jason Brown, Steve Churchill & Brian Moore scoring a very respectable 90 points!
With 36 teams, a very well supported raffle, prizes including a Porche 911 track day at Silverstone and the ‘Bullseye’ Competition held on the infamous 19th hole, the grand total for the day of over £5000 exceeded all expectation.
Due to the success of the day and the goodwill created, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding the Charity Golf Day in support of Care for Casualties once again during 2014!

Trevor Stipling, Rifles County Secretary (Cornwall), said of the day:
“I was part of a Rifles Team organised by Lt Col Mike Rescorle with members of his family, all servicemen. What a fantastic day on a glorious Golf Course, well organised, so well supported by the members and so generously donated by the Bond family. The Rifles is the County Regiment of Cornwall and the support that we receive from the community is important to every Rifleman and their families, it makes their commitment and sacrifice so worth while. The Rifles employ a unique concept, every Regiment in the Army has four "pillars" the regular soldiers, the volunteers, the veterans and the cadets but the Rifles extend this to a fifth pillar - the community that they recruit from. The link with the communities has never been stronger and the golf on Friday reinforced that fact. From all "pillars" can I say a heartfelt thank you to the staff and members at Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club for the warm welcome and a superb day. If this is to become an annual event I will ensure that it appears in the Rifles Forecast of Events.”
