Course plays tough for pros
CRANLEIGH Golf and Country Club held its members’ pro-am recently and the competition proved a challenge for the modern golf pros.
The 5,644-yard par 68 course yielded a winning score of 70, with Burhill professional Morgan Kennedy taking the honours.
The two-over-par round was the highest winning professional score of the season in the region.
Cranleigh head professional Karl Morgan, said: “It just shows how tough our course is, even for these high-quality pros. Morgan played a great round of golf and was still two over par.
“If you haven’t played the course before, it can really bite you and we were actually quite proud that nobody was able to break par. It’s good to see further evidence that golf is not all about how far you can hit the ball these days.”
The team honours went to Ryan Whiting, Rhys Kinsella, David Rudley and Stuart Holder (pictured right), with a 13-under-par total of 123.
