For the third consecutive year, Ross Golf Club’s Head Professional, Tim Hall, received the support of members from all sections when 32 teams, consisting of four players each, came to take part in his ‘School of Golf’ Annual golfing extravaganza. The teams took part in several varied activities in perfect weather and ideal playing conditions.
The development of young people at the Ross Club has received special focus since Tim’s arrival five years ago and all proceeds from the day were donated towards ensuring that the Ross Juniors Academy continues to flourish.
Over the years, in conjunction with the Club’s Junior Forum Committee and Club members, initiatives have helped buy team clothing and part fund coaching sessions to include special physical development and psychology programmes.
The comprehensive prize-winners list on the day included a ladies team heading the final results table with 102 stableford points. This was Katie Greenwood, Denise Laird, Carol Smith and Sue Johnson with other successes as follows;
Second was Ted Williams, Paul Vitale, Paul Element, Steve Gwilliam 101 pts. Third was Jessie Lawrence, Sally Lawrence, Peter Lawrence, Phil Midwinter 100 pts. Fourth was Matty Dobbs, Alex Cruickshank, Harry Griffiths, Liam Greig 97 pts, being a Ross Juniors team.
Next Best Ladies Team Jan Reid, Nesta Hirst, Rosemary Williams, Pat Johnson 90 pts
The putting competition winner was Alex Harris and the Junior Academy competition winner was Archie Kendall. Several members benefited in the ‘nearest the pin’ and 2s sweep categories and the ‘Beat The Pro’ challenge across the course’s pond 12th par three hole.
Tim thanked all those who had generously contributed to the day’s varied golfing experiences with gratitude to all members, organisations and Brand Partners who had donated prizes and sponsored holes.
He specifically thanked Julia Wilde and Lisa Griffiths who played a pivotal role in the organisation of the day’s raffle. The £772 raised will ensure that young players will continue to receive the priority they deserve.
