RGS Professionals Charity Golf Day 2019
The RGS Professionals Charity Golf Day returned to the magnificent Royal Ashdown Forest GC for the sixth year in succession, raising money for the Changing Lives campaign. The course was in superb condition and the day was blessed with some unseasonal sunshine.
It was the team lead by former pupil and keen golfer Justyn Jackson (’88), that took the main spoils of the day by scoring the most points in the team competition. Gez Watkins (’97) hit a monstrous drive on the 12th hole to win Longest Drive and Rob Wakeford played a cracker on the Nearest to the Pin on the difficult 9th. The popular Thunderball challenge was won by Mark Garner (’83), David Hylton (RGS Parent) and Bent Petersen, taking home a bottle of Whiskey each.
The day was capped off with our tremendous hosts serving up a delicious traditional roast dinner with all the trimmings – always a highlight of the day.
We are extremely thankful to those that supported the day once again and to everyone at Royal Ashdown Forest for making us all feel so welcome once again.
We can confirm that the date for next years RGS Professionals Charity Golf Day will be Thursday 8 October 2020, please add to your diary.
