RGS Foundation Golf Day 2017
On Thursday 29 June 2017, Reigate Heath Golf Club hosted the 7th Annual RGS Foundation Golf Day sponsored by Devine Homes. With a full compliment of players ranging from current RGS Students to those who left RGS in the 1950s, there was a great blend of youth and experience in attendance from the Reigatian Community.
Out huge thanks go to our principal sponsor on the day Devine Homes and former RGS pupil Barry Devine (’90) for his fantastic support. Also we would like to thank Nearest the Pin Sponsors – Dataquest and Longest Drive – Beard Construction.
With the weather behaving and the course in great shape the pairs set off in the early afternoon with hopes of posting a competitive score.
It was current RGS parent Laurie Kerr that showed enough accuracy on the 9th hole to collect the Nearest to the Pin and RGS Governor/ parent/ former pupil Marc Benton (’90) who unleashed a monster of a drive on the 5th hole to pick up the Longest Drive.
In the main event of better ball pair stableford, there was some enormous scores posted. Eventually, when all the scores were collected it was a great pleasure to get Barry Devine to award the winning trophy to David Diffey and Jack Coles representing Beard Construction scoring a very impressive 50 points.
The evening finished with a delicious BBQ, raffle and auction. All the money raised from the event will go directly to the Changing Lives campaign and we are delighted to announce that this year the day raised over £5000 – a phenomenal amount. Thank you to all that supported us at this event and we hope to see you back next year, the date has already been set and will take place on Thursday 28 June 2018 so please add to your diary.
