Ely City Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
2016 Ely City Golf Club Pro-Am
Last Friday Ely City Golf Club held their annual PGA Pro Am tournament attracting some of the top professionals from the East of England. With 20 teams taking part it proved to be another successful event supported by Ely members and visitors from other clubs.
The leading professional score came from Ian Ellis from Great Yarmouth & Caster golf course who shot a 5 under par round of 67 which included a back nine of just 31 shots. The leading team made up of Alice Greatwood, Hilary Mead, Chris Mead and team professional David Salisbury from Three Rivers County Club had a 14 under par total of 130 beating three other teams on countback.
The winning team each received a PING G series driver accompanied by a book signed by Ryder cup hero Ian Poulter. Another score to mention came from St Ives professional James Mynott (previously a junior member at Ely City) who had an excellent bogey free round of 68.
I would like to thank everyone who made the day a success, Head Greenkeeper Andy Baker and his staff for presenting the course so well, Head Chef Marty and his staff for the fantastic food and service, lastly our sponsors PING, Ian Poulter, Platinum Properties Ely and Honda Crown Garage Soham. This year we had our biggest ever prize table for the team members which valued close to £2,500.
The Pro Am has been a great success here at Ely for the last 15 years and with such amazing prizes compared to other PGA Pro Am events this really is one worth entering.
Below you can see some pictures from the day including the winning team.
