Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - GOLF

IT was cer­tainly Cap­tain’s day when the Tom­lin­son broth­ers re­tained the an­nual King’s School Bur­sary Fund Golf Chal­lenge at Mac­cles­field Golf Club.

Shoot­ing an in­cred­i­ble 101, with seven birdies in the four ball for­mat with the two best scores to count, they came in five points ahead of Mickey and David Jones and Steve and Ju­lia Dunne.

Charles MacKin­non’s team were third with 91 points and Allan Stevens’ team, who are also pre­vi­ous win­ners, were third.

Garry Tom­lin­son, who is the Cap­tain of Mac­cles­field Golf Club this year, said: “If we win it for a third year I’m go­ing to sug­gest my son gets a free place.

“We had to win be­cause we’ve not had the tro­phy en­graved yet, it saves me another job!

“Se­ri­ously it’s al­ways a red let­ter day in our club’s cal­en­dar to welcome the King’s golfers to Mac­cles­field Golf Club.

“Look­ing down on the town from high on this hill you can see just how im­por­tant King’s has been to the town for so many years and what a con­tri­bu­tion they have made and con­tinue to make to com­mu­nity life.”

The event was or­gan­ised by for­mer King’s pupils and raised £4,000 for the King’s School Bur­sary Fund, which has now raised around £700,000 to help fund full fee and part fee places for de­serv­ing pupils who would not nor­mally be able to af­ford a place at the lead­ing in­de­pen­dent school.

Head­mas­ter Dr Si­mon Hyde, said: “Our for­mer pupils con­tinue to make a last­ing con­tri­bu­tion to King’s even though some play­ing to­day left nearly 60 years ago.

“It’s won­der­ful to see how the school has re­tained such af­fec­tion and loy­alty.”
