The England Deaf Golf Spring Event has now finished. Thank you to all our deaf golfers who played in this event – it was great to see you all!
The event was played at Luton Hoo which included ankle high rough and knee high thick rough if fairways were missed! One of the feature holes included a 271 yard par 3!! The flags were in tough locations due to the threat of heavy rain requiring pins to be tucked away on high parts of greens! All of this lead to a challenging, but enjoyable setup!The results are as follows
Gross Overall Winner – Matt Bradshaw
Net Winner – Andy W Brooks
Ladies Winner – Lydia Ingman
The results can be seen on GolfBox.
