Ely City Golf Club Pro-Am
Last Friday was the annual Ely City Golf Club PGA Pro-Am. Having worked hard promoting the event we managed to get 34 teams to enter which was 10 more than last year, so I would like to thank all of the members who supported the event. I would also like to thank Ray Lawrence, Angie Lawrence and Barbra Clark for running the halfway house and providing an excellent BBQ for all of the competitors. I would also like to thank our sponsors Crown Garage Soham, G's Fresh Ltd and Platinum Properties Ely for sponsoring the event and making this year's Pro-Am such a success.
Played in blustery conditions the golf course was set up challenging but fair and all of the competitors praised the condition of our course, so well done to Head Greenkeeper Andy Baker and his team for all their work. Below is a run down of the scores and some pictures from the presentation.

Back in May I won the Foremost Championships held at the Oxfordshire and due to this win, I was selected to represent our buying group Foremost in a Ryder Cup style event held at the Belfry, The Ashworth Cup. Well earlier this week I travelled up to the Belfry to meet with my 11 team mates and prepare for the event. Competing against a rival buying group, TGI, the format was as follows: Tuesday morning - Fourballs, Tuseday afternoon - Foursomes and lastly Wednesday - Singles.
As with everything Foremost do, it was a very well organised event and it was a pleasure to represent them. My playing partner for the week was Stephen Bennett and it was great to renew our partnership from our time of playing in the PGA Cup. The overall final score was 15.5 - 8.5 in favour of Foremost and I was happy to win all three of my matches and contribute to the winning score. Below are a few pictures from my time competing for the Ashworth Cup.
