THE start of September capped a memorable two weeks for golf at Kingsfield.
On September 1, Andrew Corr defeated David Pace at the 20th hole in a closely fought 1st class club championship final.
And a week later, September 8, saw Kingsfield host the second annual Katie’s Cup in aid of Leukaemia Research.
A total of 30 teams and 120 golfers competed in the golf event and evening barbeque to raise a fantastic £6000 for the charity.
The event was won by club championship runner-up David Pace and his team of Robert Frame, Jed Shirley and Scott Grieve.
The event was supported not only by the local community but by a host of golfing stars including past Open champion and Ryder Cup team member Paul Lawrie, recently crowned Swiss Open Champion Richie Ramsey and local European Tour player Stephen Gallacher.
Robert Arkley of Kingsfield said: “I would like to thank all of the golfers, friends and family that supported this year’s Katie’s Cup and helped us raise £6000 for Leukaemia Research.
“This surpassed all expectations but is testimony to the great support and loyalty that our members and local people show towards Kingsfield.
“I would also like to thank all of the professional golfers that supported the event.
“To have names like Lawrie, Ramsey and Gallacher provide prizes is out of this world and definitely added to the appeal of the event.
“All of the people involved at Kingsfield are proud to have been involved and we are already looking forward to next year.”
