ESC Golf day raises over £20k

A day of hardcore golf, a little pampering, a swanky meal and the obligatory drinks at The Grove in Hertfordshire saw the games industry’s top dogs raise over £20,000 for the Entertainment Software Charity.

The likes of Rod Cousens, Chris Peacock, Ray Maguire, David Yarnton, Jonathon Grimes, Serhad Koro, Ian Curran, Gary Booker and Ian Livingstone enjoyed a day of fund raising and dubious mulligan abuse yesterday as part of the ESC’s latest charity event.

And MCV can reveal that a date for next year’s event has been confirmed – stick a date in your diary for May 14th 2009 for the next ESC Charity Golf and Spa Day.
