Two golfers have raised more than £1,000 for charity after playing 100 holes in 15 hours.

Conor Madden and Rob Edwards completed the challenge at Bushey Hall Golf Club on Saturday.

The club's captain, and Conor's father, Brendan Madden said he was "extremely proud" of the achievement.

The golfers started at 5.30am and completed the challenge at 8.45pm. They were met with applause from about 20 people who had been cheering them to the finish.

Mr Madden, who lives on Park Avenue, said: "The day was fantastic.

"It was touch and go after two rounds. We were worried because we could tell the boys were getting tired.

"However they both powered through and we are all proud of their achievement."

The money raised will go to the club's charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
