The Social Golfer – Par 3 Championship – What they said…
Speaking after the event Ian Mullins, Managing Director of The Social Golfer said;
“ Once again members joined in with our innovative shoot-out format giving an average golfer the taste of what it’s like to play sudden death. I still can’t believe how nervous some of them looked as they stood on the tee.”
“However, I thoroughly enjoy watching grown men turn into jelly.”
“Well done to Steve, I have no doubts his sights are now set on becoming the TSG MatchPlay champion next!”
“Many thanks to Pedham Place and Tim Milford and his team for once again looking after us so well!”
