A golf day with a twist in Cwmbran raised £1,900 for Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice.

It was the first Ladies Golfing Fun Day at GreenMeadow Golf Club. Captain Sara Goode organised the event and chose a comic theme.

Members and guests were invited to dress up as their favourite cartoon character.

A club spokesman said: “We saw characters such as the Flintstones, Shrek, Shrek’s wife Princess Fiona (GreenMeadow’s Lady Captain), Puss in Boots, Minnie Mouse and our very own Mario Brothers on hand to help the day run smoothly.

“Added skills activities were incorporated around the course on the day which included ‘closest shot to Mickey’s head’ on the second hole, ‘closest to the snake on hole 9’ and ‘closest to Minnie’s Nose on hole 15’.

“The day consisted not only of members from Greenmeadow but neighbouring Gwent golf clubs including Blackwood, Woodlake Park, Pontnewydd and Llanwern. Aso we had clubs represented from Pontypridd, Builth and as far away as Looe in Cornwall, all participating for such a good cause.

“Overall the day was an outstanding success and great fun was had by all, so much so that the event will now become an annual event.”
