On Friday 4th June the BMGA and Hemsby’s 9-hole Lost World Adventure Golf Course co-organised a pre-BMGA British Championships warm-up Charity Pro-Am doubles event. The competition helped to raise £100 for theThe Jay Cubbins Appeal Fund.
Twelve teams took part in the Lost World Classic ‘Pro-Am’ Charity Doubles Competition and the event was won by the team of Kent’s Sean Homer and Hemsby’s Mitch Swann with a team score of 94.
Two teams tied for second place after both pairs finished with 18-hole totals of 97. After a sudden-death play-off it was London’s Nick Chitty and Kent’s Marion Homer who defeated London’s Brad Shepherd and Luton’s Emily Gottfried at the fifth extra hole.
Lost World Adventure Golf owner James Gray said after the event "It was a pleasure to host the first 'Hemsby Pro-Am', and I hope it will become an annual event. I really enjoyed meeting the BMGA members who came along. It was nice to put a face to the names, and I really appreciated that they took time out of a busy weekend to support the competition."
