The PGA EuroPro Tour visited Cumberwell Park for the fourth consecutive year from Monday 26th June – Friday 30th June and yet again it proved to be another hugely successful event with a large amount of praise from the Players and PGA EuroPro Tour officials.

The course was in fantastic condition all week and the greens received high praise from players and officials.

PRO AM
The pre tournament Pro Am was played on Monday 26th June where 52 teams of members and sponsors competed over the Red and Yellow courses (the biggest Pro Am on the EuroPro tour during 2017) and had a fabulous day with the amateurs thoroughly enjoying there game with a EuroPro Professional.
The warm and benign conditions meant scoring was very low and the team from Gems Solutions scored a superb 98 points to win the Pro Am. The Professional individual title went to Daniel Owen with a 64 closely followed by our very own Will Brown with a 65.

TOURNAMENT
Another superb tournament of low scoring and lots of birdies lead to it needing another play-off to decide our champion, both Neil Raymond and John Henry birded the 18th (the 1st play off hole) so it was back down the 18th again before Neil birdied the hole and took the title and winner’s cheque for £10,000.

A big thank you must go to all of our members who volunteered throughout the week ball spotting, scoring and car parking! – Without these volunteers the event would not be the success it was, so a big thank you!

Thanks also to GRENKE for their support of the event for a 3rd consecutive year. Gary Standen from Grenke was at the Prize Presentation Ceremony to present the trophy to winner.

The PGA EuroPro Tour visited Cumberwell Park for the third consecutive year from Monday 20th June – Friday 24th June and yet again it proved to be another hugely successful event with a large amount of praise from the Players and PGA EuroPro Tour officials.

Despite the recent wet weather the players and the PGA EuroPro Tour commented on the superb condition of the course and commended the efforts of Matt James and his team of Green Keepers for their efforts throughout the week.

PRO AM
The pre tournament Pro Am was played on Monday 20th June and was a huge success, members and sponsors formed 56 teams (the biggest Pro Am on the tour during 2016) had a fabulous day with the amateurs thoroughly enjoying there game with a EuroPro Professional.
The morning rain and afternoon wind made scoring extremely tricky and the best Pro score came from late starter Mark Young with a 67 (-7), pipping our very own Steve Surry who shot a 68 (-3).

TOURNAMENT
The tournament got underway in damp conditions but it soon became evident that birdies were the order of the day, our own Pro Steve Surry again found some good form during the week opening the event with a round of 64 (-7) which was only behind the leader on a day of very low scoring when more than 50 players shot in the 60’s
The 2nd day again proved to be a good day for scoring and cut line for the top 50 players moved to -3 towards the end of the day. Rounds of 66 and 65 from Nicholas Garland saw him take a 1 shot lead over former European Tour Pro Stephen Dodd.

The final day saw blustery conditions and a number of players moving up and down the leaderboard – the leaders got to -14 before dropping back and with the clubhouse lead by Adam Hodkinson of -13 (with a back 9 of just 29 shots) it was left to Stephen Dodd to hole a snaking 35 foot putt on the last to force a play off for another dramatic finish – he duly delivered and went on to par the 1st play off hole and take the title.
