Watford Synagogue held its first ever charity golf day, raising more than £3,000 for charity.

Eighty-eight players - 22 four-ball teams - participated in the event on the championship course at luxury hotel The Grove.

The event, organised by Watford Synagogue’s newly-formed Golf Society, raised £5,500, of which £3,300 will be donated to the Peace Hospice with the balance going to synagogue funds.

Co-organiser Clive Walters said: "Me and my colleague Barry Freed are delighted that the inaugural Watford Synagogue Golf Society Charity Classic has proved such a success and given us an opportunity to put much-needed funds back into the local community."

A second charity golf classic is planned for early in 2015.
