Bramcote hosted successful PGA Charity Day

 

Bramcote Golf Course hosted the PGA Charity day event in October and our very own Pro & PGA Midlands captain Nic Gilks has given the Association’s Benevolent Fund a £1,000-plus boost by the donating the proceeds from the successful  golf day

Nic chose the charity that helps PGA pros who have fallen on hard times to be the beneficiary of the annual event staged by the regional captain.

“The PGA Benevolent Fund does a great job for pros and I was more than happy to support it by holding a fundraising pro-am at  Bramcote,” explained Gilks.

Fifteen teams, each comprising a PGA Professional and three amateurs, took part in the day which raised £1,435 for the fund.

“The cash came from entry fees and an auction which included fourballs donated from a number of clubs in the area,” added Gilks.

“I’m delighted with the way the day went and can’t thank the 60 players who took part in the day and the clubs that donated auction items enough.”

The pro-am was won by Ben Jones and his trio of amateurs – Suresh, Ram and Jayesh Patel who are all members of Bramcote Waters.

In addition to the golf, a novelty competition was staged on each of the club’s nine holes. These included bowls, rugby, football, javelin throwing, putting the shot and frisbee golf.

A number of Bramcote members took part in the fund raising day  and with the success of this event , hopefully it wont be to long before the club host another.
