22 teams enjoyed blazing sunshine and a wonderfully maintained golf course at the 25th Annual Newark Rugby Club Golf Day at Ping Gainsborough.
Although the number of teams was down on previous years, over 80 golfers took part in the day.
Five teams enjoyed the very generous prizes donated by Ping Europe, Winning Team Captains were, First..Alan Staines, Second...Vonny Rose, Third...John Sheardown, Fourth, Ian Papworth and Fifth, Mason Cole.nearest the pin winners were Ian Papworth, Phil Cotton and Wayne Collier and the longest drive was won by Jim Hallam.
The President thanked Dickie Marshall and Barry Thompson for organising the day and they in turn were full of gratitude and praise for the many people at Ping Europe who pulled out all the stops to make the day a success.
A fair sum was raised for the Club from entry fees, the raffle with prizes donated generously be a few members and a " beat the Pro" contest which was boosted by the Pro who donated his fee to Club funds.
A date is being set for next year and will be confirmed shortly.
We are deeply indebted to John Clark and the rest of the team at Ping Europe and to Jean Lawrence who single handedly mastered registration and raffle ticket selling.
