It’s the first time this event has been held on the new course at the centre opposite Bournemouth Airport.
Teams of three played a ‘Texas Scamble’ tournament which was won by Stuart Freeman, Steven Marshall and Rosalie Freeman.
Club captain Tony Pomeroy presented them with their winners’ medals.
There was also a ‘crazy putting’ competition held on the recently-opened practice and short-game area.
Daryl Dampney, who manages the centre, said: “The new course is bedding down nicely and everyone enjoyed the round.
“It was good fun but more importantly we well exceeded our £500 target for Macmillan Caring Locally.
“Since we have opened the new course and practice facilities we have seen a surge of people turning up for a round as well as an increase in membership.”
Macmillan Caring Locally, based in Christchurch, is a charity that specialises end of life care and gives support to families, carers and friends.
