Clarets Mad's fourth golf day proved to be a big success yesterday at Royal Rishton with even the decent weather showing its face after previous days had not been quite so blessed.
We've had pouring rain and gales, but this time the sun shone on a superb day when Andy Hodson's team proved to be the winners of the Texas Scramble.
The real winners were the Clarets Mad Youth Foundation. Over £500 was raised, with more still to come in, and this has boosted the money raised to over £39,600 since the launch in March 2006.
After around four hours of golf it all ended with some food, drink and of course the presentations in the club house at Rishton.
Thanks go to Rishton Golf Club for hosting us for a fourth time, to Tony Yates and Phil Wright who organised the whole day, and to all those who took part.
The next confirmed event will be the Race Night on Friday 26th November at Turf Moor.
