Role model raises money for Lincoln golf club

Superb member: Local golfer plays 100 holes of golf in less than 10 hours to raise money for his club.

A member from Carholme Golf Club in Lincoln played 100 consecutive holes of golf to raise money for the club.

Shaun Marshall, a carpet fitter from Lincoln, played constantly for nearly 10 hours, teeing off at 6:45am and finishing at 4:15pm on March 3.

Around £750 of sponsorship money was raised, which will be donated towards modernisation of the club’s facilities.

Club Captain, Gordon Mould, explained how Marshall is an ambassador for Carholme Golf Club.

“Despite Shaun being a top player and currently holding the Lincolnshire Matchplay Championship title, he’s a superb member and will do anything for his club and best of all play with anyone.

“He welcomes and helps out any new golfer and is brilliant with the junior players who look up to him as a role model,” said Mould.

This is the second time in three years that Marshall has been involved in fundraising for the club and playing off a plus one handicap he also represents Lincolnshire in the county team.
