WEMCo Director takes part in Triathlon to Help the Heroes

An unusual but challenging event took place at Dartmouth Golf & Country Club on Friday July 30th but it was all in a very worthy cause.

WEMCo Director, Mark Rendle joined fellow Dartmouth Golf & Country Club members and professional, Rob Glazier, to compete in a unique triathlon based around the resort’s two golf courses.

First up was a five mile cycle around the buggy path, followed by a bracing 200 metre swim across the lake on the Championship course’s third hole and finally a five mile run around the golf courses and – to top it all off – three holes putted out left-handed.

First to finish was club member and event organiser Mark Rendle, who said: “There were aching limbs afterwards but we all thoroughly enjoyed it and the money raised is for a great cause.

The event raised £1,150 for the captain’s charity, Help for Heroes.

Dartmouth Golf & Country Club comprises 27 holes of outstanding golf situated in the heart of picturesque south Devon. The golfing facilities include the 18-hole Championship Course and its nine-hole sister-layout; The Dartmouth.
