pro-Am tournament SUCCESS
West Surrey Pro-Am 2018 - June 6th
Organised in conjunction with the PGA South Region, the club's highly regarded Pro-Am Tournament - in its 42nd year - was yet again a resounding success with a field of 40 teams, comprising three amateurs playing with a PGA professional competing for the Silver Jubilee Trophy (first presented in 1977).
Despite a testing course in the peak of condition, fast greens, and challenging pin positions, the winning team (pictured above) of Phil Gray, Rob Elvin, Richard Lloyd and Professional David Copsey (DCGS Poult Wood) posted a wonderful score of 15 below par.
And the professionals went one better with Richings Park Professional Chris Rogers equalling the course record with a 7 under par 64 to take the winning purse of £1000 plus the Sam Bannister Trophy.
The 180 yard shoot out for the leading professionals on the 18th was won by Bramley GC Assistant Professional James Johnson ...... who also had a hole-in-one on the 2nd in his 4 under par round of 67.
As always the club is extremely grateful to all the participating sponsors whose generous support made for a wonderful day.
The competition is the club's main fund-raising event of the year and the joint beneficiaries will be the children's charity Wooden Spoon and the National Autism Society helping children with autism in Surrey.
