83 golfers, including Barratt Homes’ employees and representatives from the charity, took part in the tournament, which was held at Ramsdale Park Golf Centre in Calverton.
The tournament was won by a team made up of Hallam Land and the Barratt Homes’ Land department and an enjoyable afternoon was had by all, with additional fundraising activities such as a raffle taking place on the day.
