One Great Golf Day at Sandhill Golf Club in Barnsley raised a staggering £5,105.57 with 9 teams taking part this year. 15 of the 18 holes were sponsored by local businesses and contractors to the Alhambra and a special thank you goes to Lee Baron, Alhambra’s managing agents, for their generous contribution.Local businesses and contractors to the centre supporting the event include; Talk To Media,Ride On Entertainment!, Amco, Kone, Barnsley Electrical Supplies, Gates Estates, Blue Frame Associates, Fizzco, Oltec, Safe, Pure Water Solutions, USL, Norcroft, Mitie Cleaning and Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre.
