2011 captain Alun Lamerton and other key golf club members have been busy drumming up support for the event from local golfers and businesses as well as the odd golfing professional. It will be the 11th Pro-Am held on the 18 hole course, due to the great support from sponsors the club are able to offer excellent prize money to attract a higher classfield of professionals, and over £1,500 in amateur prizes.
The nominated charity is Naomi House which is a children’s hospice in Sutton Scotney, near Winchester. Naomi House and Jacksplace provide care and support for children and young adults with life limiting illnesses. For more information on the charity go to http://www.naomihouse.org.uk/.
But that’s not all the Golf Club has been doing; on the 20th and 21st of June a four man team consisting of Men’s Captain, Alun Lamerton, Club Professional, Martin Smith, Course Manager, Matt Rolls and member Dave Warman played the home Hartley Wintney Course then cycled 120 miles miles to the home of the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor, Wales and play 18 holes there, all within 24 hours to raise money for the hospice!
Thanks to Steve Randall, Paul Gaylor, Alun Lamerton, Matthew Rolls, Dave Warman, Matt Smith and Hampshire P.G.A. who have contributed so much to make this fundraising possible.
We wish everyone the best and hope a good day is had by all!
