Thanks to everyone that entered the Richmond Park Open 2019
This is the second year we have hosted the Richmond Park Open and we’re delighted that the event has gained in popularity since its first outing. Held on Sunday 18th August, it was another sell-out with 140 entries from both members and visitors – even the deluge of rain failed to dampen spirits.
What sets our event apart from most club opens, is that it’s truly open to all – golfers don’t even need an official club handicap to enter and compete for prizes. Congratulations to Loui Jesus Suárez and Angela Flynn for winning the best overall score and July Myat Tun for returning the winning non-handicap score.
Stocks of Srixon golf balls are also a lot lower this week, following the Beat the Manager prize, on the par 3 16th hole! Despite having plenty of attempts to perfect his tee shot over the course of the day, Jon Dummett ended up giving away dozens of Srixon balls due to his misfiring 7-iron.
A big thanks to Peter & Sheena Harrington and Richard Owen from Richmond Park Golf Club for organising the entries, scoring and results. And on that subject, you can find the final results of the Richmond Park Open 2019 opposite.
Thank you to everyone that entered and supported the event – here’s to the next one in 2020!
