Cowdray’s Pro-Am raises money for local hospice charity.
Cowdray Golf’s charity Pro-Am held on Saturday 23rd June was a great success. Professional and amateur golfers as well as friends and family enjoyed an action-packed, fun-filled day which took place in glorious sunshine. The event raised £4,000 in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Chichester.
Forty-six teams of four, comprising of one professional and three amateurs, played 18 holes of Cowdray’s immaculately prepared championship golf course. Prizes were presented by Lord and Lady Cowdray’s son Peregrine, who also played in the event.
The winning team was Clarke Gammon, with an impressive 15 under par score (pictured). The winning professional player prize was shared by Ian Golding and Guy Woodman who shot the same score of 67. Special mention goes to Cowdray’s lady professional player Hannah Ralph who got a hole in one on the 3rd and to Lawrence Potts who was nearest the pin on the 18th, winning three nights at the Algarve-based Aqualuz hotel and two rounds of golf on the Espiche Golf Course.
Particular thanks go to sponsors including Greene King brewery and Harwoods Group as well as Course Manager Jonathan Smith and his team who ensured that the course was in an immaculate condition. The hospitality team worked hard throughout the day and thanks also to Club Captain Ken Chapman and Rob Marjoram for their valuable input.
After the golf, many competitors and spectators enjoyed sitting in the sunshine on the terrace before the prize giving ceremony later that evening.
