Besides qualification for the final, golfers competed for the Marjorie Colson Trophy, over the public pay-and-play centre’s outstanding 18-hole Seely Course, which is beautifully laid out in the picturesque Nottinghamshire countryside, Brian Parsons topped the field with 40 Stableford points.

Pete Hardy and Stephen Wardale finished second and third respectively and, importantly, secured their places in the final.

Graeme Robertson, National events co-ordinator for DGA, gave his compliments to Ramsdale Park, which is part of BGL Golf, the UK’s leading golf course owner and operator.

"The course at Ramsdale Park was in spectacular condition, with a few very challenging and all fast running greens thrown in for good measure.” 

Nick Birch, Ramsdale Park Golf Centre General Manager, commented: “We welcome players of all ages, abilities and genders and it is pleasing to know our facilities are suitable for disabled golfers and to be involved with the Race to Burhill tournament.”
