Thank you to the members for the huge support with the Brocton Hall PGA Pro Am last week in allowing the use of the course and in particular John Perkin who spent the entire day ball-spotting on the first hole and to Lady Captain Val Keeling, Christine Davies, Amanda Horne, Di Allder, Gill Bloxham and Trish Sandy who 'womanned' the halfway house.
Paul Broadhurst won the pro medal with a 4 under par 65 and there were 2 teams well out in front with scores of –19, eventually going to Matt Southwell's team from The Chase golf club.

Nevil Bland - Head Professional
Congratulations to our PGA Assistant Luke Howe on finishing 3rd in the first PGA Midlands Order of Merit event of the year, the Lotus Financial Services Invitational, which was held at South Staffs G.C on the 4th and 5th July.
Luke was sharing the lead with ex-Ryder Cup Player Paul Broadhurst and Thomas Rastall (Sleaford) on two-under-par 69 after the first round where the conditions had been difficult due to the rain.
Our Head Professional Nevil Bland will be launching a new Junior series in a couple of weeks time with some exciting developments as part of our commitment to Better Golf from a young age, just one of the reasons Brocton Hall commands the 'GolfMark High Achiever' status.
The new Junior Academy reaches out to all juniors, not just the younger or newer-to-golf sections.
