Record round for Bursary Golf Day
Twenty three teams of keen golfers braved the rain to take to the course on Thursday 13th June at Stockport Golf Club for the annual Stockport Grammar School Bursary Golf Day in association with Brewin Dolphin.
It is Stockport Grammar School’s goal to offer as many local children as possible the opportunity to come to the school regardless of their parents’ ability to pay school fees by supporting their education with a means-tested bursary. The Bursary Golf Day, celebrating its 15th year, donates all of the day’s profits to supporting the Bursary Fund and this year it raised a record £9,500.
Despite the drizzle of a typical British summer’s day, the teams embarked on their 18 holes in fantastic humour for a superb round on one of Cheshire’s premier golf venues.
Congratulations to the team from Usleep who won the competition, Edwards & Co took second place and AC Electrical came in third. Congratulations also to John Dunne who won the Longest Drive at the 10th, to Paul Bowden who won the Nearest the Pin at the 16th and Leon Milns who hit a hole in one at the 5th.
