The Weather as usual was great for the ANNUAL GRIP PAR OPEN at Longley Park Golf Club. Somehow we are blessed for the time of year in this competition. 36 golfers travelled from the North East and North West as well as the supportive members of the host club. This competition is a 4 ball better ball Medal, the course played tough with no one scoring very low. In 3rd Place was C Roberts and D Paterson from Widnes with a 2 under Par 64 on count back, in 2nd place was A Kendall and D Lenihan from Longley Park with 3 under Par 63 and the winners with 6 Under par 60 was Bryan Fisher and Brian Flower from the North West.
Nearest pin on 18th was won by W Keenan and nearest pin in 2 on 11th was won by Ian Dyson.
A great day was had by all and BIG would like to thank Stuart Walsh of GRIPEEZE for his continued support and LPGC for hosting the event for the 3rd consecutive year. We sold over 1056 tickets on the raffle making a grand profit of £800 for the Charity, so thank you everyone for the tremendous effort in selling and buying tickets.
In 2016 the event will be held at MacDonalds Hotel, Portal in Cheshire where it will become a 2 day event with a singles and pairs competition played over the 2 days.
