A resounding success... President’s Fund Raising Day 2015

Friday 23rd of October 2015 20:04
***********

This extremely popular event was very well supported by both members and guests. The shot gun start was well received by all and teams were able to complete their rounds and be back in the clubhouse in around three and a half hours. The weather on the day could only be described as glorious and the course was again in superb condition thanks to head green keeper Jamie Probert and his hard working team of ground staff.

The meal provided by the catering staff went down very well and the thirst of the golfers was well catered for by the friendly bar staff.

All sections of the golf club were represented and the president Alun Evans passes on his gratitude for the overwhelming support and positive comments he received from all who participated.

The president would like to pass on his thanks to the members and committee for helping him organize what turned out to be a great event along with a big thank you to all the golfers who supported the event. A massive thank you must go to all who provided prizes for the very impressive raffle table as well as those who made donations to the presidents fund.

The event will undoubtedly become a popular annual event and the money raised will be used to assist with finances incurred by golfers and teams representing Pontardawe Golf Club at away venues.
