The East Yorkshire Ladies Winter Golf Alliance kicked off its 2014/15 season in fine style when it held the popular Pro/Am event at Bridlington Golf Club last week.

The competition is held annually at the president’s home club and this year the president is Bridlington Golf Club member Pam Hearmon.

In total 140 golfers took part, consisting of 35 professionals and 115 ladies, making up teams of four players.

The professionals competed for prizes in the individual event while the ladies competed for the team prizes up for grabs.

The weather was kind and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and in particular the slick greens.

The eventual winner of the professional’s prize was the in-form EuroPro player Mike Helyard from Beverley Golf Club who returned a very impressive two-under-par score of 70 in the tricky windy conditions.

The winning team were from Fulford Golf Club who won with a score of 138.

The EYLWGA President presented the prizes.
