It was July when Colchester Golf Club staged another successful PGA East Region Pro Am tournament. This was the 27th event in the Club’s history and 49 teams took part in a keenly contested tournament.
The event was sponsored for a 5th year by Chris Featherstone of The Knight Group and Mark Jardine of Poundfield Precast, together with additional sponsorship from a host of local businesses.
The Pro-Am helps raise funds for St Helena Hospice and this year was able to donate £8,600, beating last years donation of £6000. Chris Featherstone (Knight Group) and Mark Jardine(Poundfield Precast) presented the cheque to Mark Jarman – Howe (CEO) of St Helena Hospice. Mark thanked the sponsors and the members of Colchester Golf Club for their continued support. The Pro-Am has now raised almost £160,000 for the hospice.
Event organiser Hilary Persent would like to thank all the sponsors, the organising committee, volunteers, the members of Colchester Golf Club and the PGA East Region for helping to make this year’s Pro-Am a standout event in the region’s Pro-Am competitions.
