SEPTEMBER NEWS FROM MARLBOROUGH GOLF CLUB
20th September 2010

The 30 th Anniversary Marlborough Golf Club Pro Am
was held on Tuesday 14 th September in very challenging weather conditions.  Sponsored this year by Towergate Risk Solutions and run by the PGA, the event had 23 teams including many who have supported the event over the years. 

The first groups started in grey but passable conditions, the wind was not too bad however over the day it deteriorated and made of challenging conditions for all players.  Despite the prevailing conditions, Trevor Jones from The Kendleshire GC was 3 under on the turn and then completed the course with a par on the back 9 to post a 3 under for the match. 

It was Trevor's 5 th win in a row and as he now moves into golf full time and joins the European circuit he is clearly one to be watched for the future.  6 times Marlborough Pro Am winner George Ryall put in a good performance but couldn't match Trevor's fine performance on the day. 

In the team competition, the Marlborough Captain's Team played an excellent round to post a 10 under with second place Towergate No. 3 team pipping Jim Old's team on count back.  Both posted  7 under.

Once again, Callaway provided fabulous prizes for the winners including golf travel bags, golf club bags, putters and each amateur also received a fabulous Callaway "goodie" bag as a memento of the day.  Naomi House was the chosen charity who will benefit from funds raised during the event.

At the prize giving presentation, Club Captain Neil Patch thanked the PGA, the sponsors, Towergate, Callaway and also Fish Bros Honda. "It was not the best of weather conditions, however golfers are hardy souls and judging from the feedback everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the day.  I am delighted to report that we had several teams already commit for our 2011 Pro Am."
