SOMERSET GOLF DEVELOPMENT GROUP at Bath & West Show 2016. Message from SGDG Chairman John Paterson: " WOW!!!!!!! WHAT A WEEK AT THE BATH & WEST. Throughout the 4 days we probably had between 400 and 500 trying or retrying out golf or brushing up on their skills, of those we collected contact details for around 300, details of which will be passed to clubs local to them.
It was a massive undertaking setting up and running the equipment over the 4 days. We couldn't have put this on without the help of volunteers and PGA pros.. I would personally like to thank all the volunteers; Leslie Organ, Nigel Long, Brian Evans, Fran Davies, Margaret Allen, Carol Lake, Tom Tulk, Tim Harris, Paul Middleton, Norman Banfield, Pam Frith, Mike Strode, Callum Whittaker, Neil Mossman, Simon Rendle, Carole Paterson, Cathy Olive, Ian Poole, Diane Squance, Did Ager, Kev Purdy, Chris Bishop and last but certainly not least, Sybil, I'm really sorry, I don't know your surname.
The PGA pros were tremendous, their interaction with both the young and not so young was brilliant to see.And again thanks to David Haines, Andrew Hayes, Mark Singleton, Alex Cross, Dan Keitch, Rob Moss, Shane Kay. Jack Heginbotham, Dan Dredge and Sarah Burnell."
The team for Match week was announced by SLCGA Captain Fran Davies: More details on Team Talk page
