RGS Foundation Charity Golf Day 2018
On a dry, hot and fast course at Reigate Heath GC, 32 players descended for the eighth annual RGS Foundation Charity Golf Day on Thursday 28 July. With temperatures soaring to the high twenties in the early afternoon shade, water and lots of spare golf balls were the orders of the day!
As per previous years, we were absolutely thrilled that Devine Homes were our Principal Sponsors for this popular event, in particular our thanks go to Barry Devine (’90) for all of his support.
It was Matthew Hearsum (Morrisons Solicitors) that played the shot of the day on the ninth hole to take home the Nearest to the Pin and ex-pro Karl Wesson (Vision 4 Sport) who hit a monstrous drive on the fifth for the longest drive of the day. With pairs playing a better ball stableford format in the glorious sunshine, Laurie Kerr and Alistair Cleland had a great round obtaining 45 points, but it was former RGS pupils Greg Poole and Adam Slade (both ’99) that scored a mightily impressive 50 points to take home the coveted trophy.
After the raffle, auction and prizes had been distributed players and guests enjoyed a magnificent BBQ in the early evening sunshine. We are delighted to announce that almost £5000 was raised from the day – all of which will go towards the Changing Lives campaign supporting children in the local area.
On Thursday 11 October 2018, we have our RGS Professionals Golf Day at one of the best courses in the South East of England, the Royal Ashdown Forest GC. If you would like to reserve a place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot.
