A brilliant day at Rockliffe Hall
Our 2018 Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament, held for the first time at the stunning Rockliffe Hall, proved an incredible success.
Members and their guests raised over £,1500, bringing the total raised for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) in 2018 to approximately £10,000.
The successful partnership with the Yorkshire Professional Golf Association is at the heart of the day. John Wells and Aran Wainright make sure a professional plays with every team, and so is on hand to provide advice and guidance to the amateurs.
“The Professional on every team is a brilliant element of the day,” said Stephen Harrison, Chairman of the CHSA. “The incredibly variable wind made the conditions particularly challenging this year. Advice, there and then, from the professionals made a big difference!”
“It was a superb day,” said Richard Dyson of Greyland. “Great location, lovely hotel and a tough (but fair) golf course. Special praise to all the staff at Rockcliffe Hall, each of whom was very polite and courteous.”
The winning team came from Scott Janitorial, with Metsa Tissue and RPC Bpi Recycled Plastics coming second and third respectively.
– First: Keith Airey, Scott Bullough, Ross Bullough (Scott Janitorial). Peter Robinson (Pro Player)
– Second: Mark Dewick, Craig Williams, Tony Cook (Metsa Tissue). Simon Appleton (Pro Player)
– Third: Ian Griffiths (RPC BPI) Mike Stubbs and Dean Saunders. Jon Stacey (Pro Player)
– Fourth: Richard Dyson, John Macpherson and Alex Wyers (Greyland). James Drinkall (Pro Player)
– Fifth: Jed Stone, Carl Barnett and Kevin Harness (Eastern Valley Chemicals). Carlo Ciullo (Pro Player)
– Duncan Bullough, also from Scott Janitorial, won Best Amateur Player.
