This is a wonderful sum of money that will contribute towards us reaching our £1.25 million target in time for our anniversary in June. Thanks to everyone who has contributed over the course of the year”.
Hawkstone Park Golf Club is located at Weston under Redcastle in north Shropshire and counts current European tour professional Ashley Chesters as a member in addition to former Open winner Sandy Lyle.
