Macbeth chartered insurance brokers are proud sponsors of the annual Calcot Park Juniors Fundraiser, an event designed to raise funds to support golf stars of the future!
The long running annual fundraiser event held at Calcot Park, Reading and organised by John and Gwyneth Meikle, is held in memory of Karl Todd, a junior member who sadly passed away several years ago. Over the years, tens of thousands have been raised to support the junior section, providing funds for one-to-one tuition with the club PGA professionals. Excellent progress has been made with many of the junior section, with handicaps falling like flies.
2018 saw the best year ever both in terms of numbers playing and money raised for the Calcot Park Juniors Fundraiser! With 30 teams and 120 people playing, combined of both adults and juniors, the club managed to raised a grand total of £3600 for the junior section. Numbers are up 10% on the previous year.
This year’s winners were the quiet and unassuming ‘The Chairman’s Team’, sponsored by the club chairman Roy Burt. The Team Captain was a Calcot Park Assistant PGA Professional, Bradley Tuckett and his team members were Lottie Cadle (left), Lucy West (middle) and Victoria Prietzel (right) . They won the Tournament and Karl Todd Cup at Calcot Park with 88 Stableford Points.

Congratulations to The Chairman’s Team. It’s great to see a mix of both male and female youth coming up through the club. Calcot Park are doing a great job of encouraging juniors of all shapes, sizes and abilities and long may it continue. Hopefully they’ll be thinking of Macbeth, chartered insurance brokers, as they are about to sink the winning putt on the 18th at The Open.
It’s definetly the taking part that counts!
