It was a fantastic day at Bridlington Golf Club last Friday for the 23rd annual Seaside Pro/Am event sponsored by Golf Buggies GB.
Event organiser and home club professional Anthony Howarth said: “The weather on Friday was glorious and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the course and hospitality on offer.
“Thanks to everyone who helped during the day, in particular Aran Wainwright (Yorkshire PGA) and congratulations to all the prize winners.
“It would be fair to say that the quality of the professional golfers playing was quite exceptional and the eventual winner was Michael Ramsden (Renishaw Park) who took the honours with a 67 (five-under-par).
“And on receiving his winners cheque for £1,000 praised the condition of the course which he says gets better each year.”
Howarth hobbled round with his recently injured knee and managed a solid round of 70 (two-under-par) for third place.
The team representing West Building Supplies, which comprised of Ganton pro Gary Brown alongside S Pottage, Oliver West and Rob Pinder, were victorious in the team event, winning the Lloyd Dowson Team Trophy with an excellent score of 126 (18-under-par).
Howarth added: “As always a special mention to all the companies who kindly supported the event such as Pineapple Joes, BMW Cooper Malton, West Building Supplies, Andrew Jackson Solicitors, Ethan Blake Amenities and to the new main sponsor Ken Hidle and all the team at Golf Buggies GB.
“The event was a huge success and we look forward to hosting the event next year on Friday June 7 2019.”
