Jamega Tour Pro-Am, Sunday 23rd September

On Sunday 23rd September we welcomed back to Mentmore Golf & Country Club the Jamega Pro Tour as host's to the Greenfleets Jamega Open on The Rosebery Course. 15 teams consisting of three amateur players playing with one of the top Jamega Tour players took to the course at 9:30am following the shotgun start.

The competition was a team stableford 3/4 handicap format with two best scores counting.  A gloomy start to the day descended into heavy rain and treacherous conditions for all, and despite the conditions everyone enjoyed the day and the company of playing with a pro golfer.

The team competition was won, with a score of 88 points, by Team Cronin made up of Simon Dinsdale, Richard Payne, Craig Cutt and their Jamega Pro Stephen Cronin. A fantastic score given the conditions that everyone endured! Runners up were Team Greenfleets 2 with a final total of 87 and third place went to Team Joy who pipped Team Corfield on countback with 83 points.

In the Pro Individual competition the men's winner was Lee Corfield who shot a fantastic 4 under (68) and collected a cheque for £500.  Lee won the Pro-Am back in May on the Rothschild Course and clearly enjoys playing at Mentmore!!

The winning Ladies Pro was Lauren Blease who finished 1 over (73) and picked up her first cheque as a pro of £200.  The Jamega Tour have introduced a new Jamega Ladies Tour and Mentmore was chosen as the launch tournament for this exciting new tour and we are thrilled to have been involved from the very start.

All 60 competitors enjoyed a 2 course meal after the golf and the prize presentation was conducted by tournament sponsor Stephen Greenstreet from Greenfleets, who along with General Manager Clint Moore, handed over prizes with a total value of £4,000!  After the prizes and speeches Tony Jones from the Jamega Tour handed over to Pat Pearce from the charity Dreamflight a cheque for £2,000.  Dreamflight are the tour's chosen charity and £1 is donated for every player entered into one of their tournaments.

We would like to thank our generous sponsors Greenfleets, Johnsons Honda, The Swan Hotel and Autoscreens for their support once again, all of whom helped make this another hugely successful event.
