Jewish Care’s Pro Am Golfers break Dyhram Park record

11 Sep 2019

On 9th September, 60 golfers and 20 professionals teed off for the 42nd Pro Am Golf Tournament at Dyhram Park Country Club, raising a total of £40,000. 

The funds will go to support residents at Jewish Care's Rela Goldhill at Otto Schiff, a specialist home providing care for adults with physical disabilities and sensory impairments. To date, the Tournament has raised over £1 million for Jewish Care.

The winning team of the day, scoring 94 points, were Colin Gerstein, Stephen Sampson and Leon Moss. They were joined by professional golfer, Chris Gane, who impressively broke the Dyrham Park course record with 63, 9 under par, beating Richard McEvoy’s record from last year.

Following an exciting morning on the course, golfers enjoyed a lunch at Dyhram Park, together with residents of Rela Goldhill.

The event was sponsored by Lockton Companies Inc.

Adam Overlander-Kaye, Jewish Care’s Director of Fundraising and Community Engagement, said:

“I’d like to thank the Committee for their hard work and Lockton, our sponsors, on behalf of Jewish Care for supporting the organisation and specifically, our work at Rela Goldhill.

“Your support really does change people’s lives. Our highly trained staff and dedicated volunteers at the home encourage and enable residents to enjoy a full and active lifestyle through a varied activities programme. They deliver 24/7 care with dedication and sensitivity, so residents can live meaningful lives and enjoy being part of the community in a vibrant Jewish atmosphere.”
