The 52 golfers and their wives included Jim Purches and Tony Rook, who founded the society 18 years ago.
Whilst there, a raffle was held in aid of the Arboleas Food Bank, raising €600 thanks to prizes donated by local businesses and bars as well as anonymous contributions.
The society’s captain, John Evans and president Tony Rook, later applauded all the members for their generosity.
The Golf Society’s committee members spent every euro of the money raised on supplies at local supermarkets. This included the basic needs that are usually taken for granted including rice, pasta, pulses, washing powder, milk, hand soap, biscuits, tooth paste and much more.
Committee members were “well pleased” to see the Food Bank so well-run, especially its distribution system, they said afterwards.
