Golf club chips in for care home residents

RESIDENTS at Care UK’s Silversprings care home in Thorrington will be taking to the greens now that a new course, designed and built by Clacton-on-Sea Golf Club, has been officially opened.

Club captain Bill McGrath and head greenkeeper Alan Smith joined Sally Rushant, the home’s manager, to open the Silversprings Woodland Course six-hole putting green.

Sally said: “Many of our residents have been keen golfers for years. When we looked at how we could develop our large grounds, they were very keen on the idea of a course.

“We were delighted when the team at Clacton-on-Sea Golf Course generously offered to design and build the course, as well as donating putters and balls. Not only will it please experienced golfers, but it will also provide an opportunity for other residents to try something new. As well as being a fun activity,

it will help residents to stay fit and healthy.” Bill McGrath said: “Golf is a passion and we were delighted to be able to help some former golfers keep their hand in, as well as introducing some newcomers to the game.

“Our club has a long history of supporting the community and we were very pleased to be able to support Silversprings in this very worthwhile project. Alan and his son have done a great job laying out the course in the wooded area near the entrance and the greens are looking very well. I am sure the residents will enjoy them.”
