Our first PRO-AM Golf Day took place on Tuesday 21st May at Woking Golf Club (www.wokinggolfclub.co.uk).
Woking was founded in 1893 on an area of open heathland in north-west Surrey and has since matured into one of the finest courses in the UK. Woking is characterised by long carries over heather to narrow, tree-lined, fast running fairways and beautifully sculptured greens full of character and deceptive slopes. Woking is the oldest of the three famous “W”s in the Woking area and has been described by many as a “hidden gem”.
Our inaugural PRO-AM golf day featured 20 of the South of England’s leading PGA professionals, thanks to the support of the PGA (www.pga.info). Twenty teams, consisting of one professional and four guests (yes, its 5-ball!), enjoyed a fabulous day playing for great prizes and the prestige of victory. In addition, there was a champagne reception and an excellent lunch in the renowned dining room accompanied by award winning wines courtesy of Chateau Grange Cochard (www.lagrangecochard.com).
