Professional and amateur golfers as well as friends and family enjoyed Cowdray Golf’s charity Pro-Am held yesterday on Sunday June 18th.
The action-packed, full-filled day succeeded in raising £4,000 in aid of the Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice.
Forty two 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 Seaford College, with an impressive 25 under par score .

The winning professional player was Nick Job who plays on the European Seniors Tour. Magnums of champagne were also awarded to players who got closest to the pin on the 3rd, 9th and 11th hole. Peregrine Pearson was nearest to the pin on the 11th hole. No-one hit a hole in one on the 9th hole to claim a Mini courtesy of Barons Hindhead BMW or the 3rd hole to win bespoke jewellery courtesy of Matthew James London.
Tim Allen, Cowdray’s Director of Golf, said: “The day was a fantastic success and we are thrilled to be able to raise £4,000 for Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice, which is Club Captain’s Mark Jasper’s chosen charity for the year. Cowdray Golf has a longstanding connection with Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice, who provide support to families 365 days a year.
“Many thanks to everyone who worked so hard to coordinate this event, the first Pro-Am for 10 years, and also to our sponsors City & Country and Metro Bank. We look forward to it becoming an annual event again.”
After lunch, many families took advantage of the beautiful sunshine and enjoyed the bouncy castle, children’s entertainer, and food that was available for guests.
