24 Hours of golf in aid of Cancer Research at Dale Hill Golf Club

Dale Hill’s Club Captain Richard Hannam has shown incredible dedication to raising funds for Cancer Research. During his Captains Year, his brother sadly passed away from Cancer. This sad family event meant that  he wanted to challenge himself both physically and mentally by taking on the challenge of not only playing golf for 24 hours but also walking the whole event in memory of his brother and raising fund for Cancer Research UK.  Dale Hill Golf Club has 2 courses and he embarked on his 1st round on the Old Course at 8.30am on Tuesday 4th July in the weekly seniors competition. Following this round he completed another two rounds of golf during the afternoon and evening on the Ian Woosnam Course.  The late evening brought some unfortunate weather but undeterred by the rain and complete darkness due to the cloud cover, he took on the night golf course setup around the Old Course before switching back onto the Ian Woosnam Course where completed an astounding 24 hours of continuous play at 8.30am on Wednesday the 5th July.

Richard played an impressive total of six rounds, covering a staggering 108 holes. What makes this achievement even more extraordinary is that he completed the entire course on foot, totalling over 80,000 steps in the process.

Richard showcased his golfing and endurance skills, and managed to raise over £2.5k for Cancer Research. The funds raised will undoubtedly contribute to ongoing efforts in the fight against cancer, bringing hope and support to countless individuals and their families. A truly remarkable achievement.
