RGS Foundation Golf Day 2019
Once again the picturesque Reigate Heath Golf Club was the host venue for the popular annual RGS Foundation Golf Day sponsored by Devine Homes.
In its ninth consecutive year, players were treated to 18 holes on a course in magnificent form, basking in the late June sunshine. As per previous years, we would like to thank the generosity of Barry Devine (’90) for his wonderful ongoing support of the day.
The day plays an important part is raising awareness and support for our Changing Lives social mobility programme which transforms the lives of some wonderful and deserving children. This year was no exception and we are delighted to announce that just under £5000 was raised on the day. A superb achievement.
As for the actual golf itself, it was the elite pairing of Russ Simmons and Ed Bartlett who blew everyone else out of the water to win the overall tournament. Rich Lewis played an incredible ‘first shot of the day’ on the 9th to take home the nearest to the pin and it was Russ Simmons again (!) that wielded his big set of shoulders for the longest drive.
The day culminated in a delicious BBQ, (courtesy of celebrity chef Tony Tobin) raffle and auction whilst the sun slowly disappeared over the rolling Surrey Hills. A fitting way to end a wonderful day.
Thank you to all those who joined us and hope to see you there next year.
