The event, which took place on Friday, is the sixth of its kind to be held at Barkway Park Golf Club in Nuthampstead Road, and has raised vital funds over the years for Herts Air Ambulance.

The charity’s fundraiser Cristina Barone said: “The members, staff and supporters at Barkway Park Golf Club have raised such an incredible amount of money over the past six years.

“This is a remarkable achievement and something that they should be extremely proud of.”

The day started with coffee and a bacon roll, followed by rounds on the course and a buffet lunch.

There was also a popular auction with prizes donated by local businesses.
