The first Dan Maskell Tennis Trust Virtual Golf Tournament has raised an incredible £11,520. This Tournament was instigated to help make up for the loss of income due to our regular Golf Celebrity Challenge not running for two consecutive years due to the pandemic. The total was achieved from a special day at Southerness Golf Club in Scotland where Dan Maskell used to play, another Golf Day at RAC Club, Epsom, several participants from Epsom Golf Club and other individuals who played or contributed to this campaign.
Our very own Marcus Buckland, a Vice-President of the Trust won the overall event with his partner Pete Stewart with the winning scores as follows:-
1st Marcus Buckland and Pete Stewart ( The Old Firm ) playing off handicaps of 24 and 21 at the RAC Old Course – scored 80 points.
2nd Mick Peddie and Phil Baker ( The Whingers ) playing off handicaps of 19 and 16 at Epsom G.C – scored 76 points.
3rd David Jones and Dave Burrell (The Epsom Tossers ) playing off handicaps of 18 and 16 at Epsom G.C – scored 75 points*
4th Dave Sturt and George Cowdrey (Wings of Eagles) playing off handicaps 12 and 25 at Epsom G.C – scored 75 points*
*3rd place was after a countback on the last 9 holes with 41 points for the last 9 hole for David Jones and Dave Burrell against 39 points for Dave Sturt and George Cowdrey.
