Thank you to everyone who supported our first Greenkeepers’ Benefit Competition, and to everyone who made donations and to those who donated prizes.
This was a fun, but competitive competition, combined with the challenge of the “Greenkeepers’ Revenge”
Despite the wind and rain, some teams were seen sending their fittest player sprinting up the fairway to show them the way - but for the less fit this was definitely a competition where you benefitted from keeping up with the group in front, particularly on holes 10 and 12 – one with two flags and only one hole, and one without a flag!!
Our Greenkeepers entered a team, to allow them to meet members and experience the course on a Competition Day. They weren’t able to compete for a prize but they came in with a very respectful nett 68.
Pictured above just before the start of their round with Pam Fahey - Lady Vice Captain and Matt Shimmell - Head Greenkeeper. The team from left to right was: Phil Lyons, Martin Eccles, Stephen Turner and James Owen.
We managed to raise £775.00, which will be presented to Matt at the End of Season Texas Scramble.
Once again a big thank you to everyone who supported the event.
