We were delighted when Balreed agreed to sponsor this event and thank them for their support and involvement in 2014 and hope to see them again in 2015. The event was played for the second year at Essendon Country Club in Hertfordshire boasting 2 courses on a 400 acre setting. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine to get the day off to a good start. Our Ex-Footballing Professionals included; Teddy Sheringham, Harry Kane, Dean Holdsworth, Pat Jennings, Ray Clemence, Paul Jewell, Paul Walsh and Russell Osman to name but a few. Sunday saw 26 teams battle it out to win the 1st prize of entry into our flagship event at La Manga Club, The Footballers Golf Classic. The top 16 Ex-Pro's then qualified to play on Monday and were: Paul Walsh, Dean Holdsworth, Steve Lovell, Andy Legg, Brian Stein, Dave Beasant, Pat Jennings, John Lacy, Paul Jones, Derek Mountfield, Andy Hessenthale, Teddy Sheringham, Paul Jewell, Chris Nicholl, Kenny Hibbitt & Ray Clemence. The matches resulted in leaving us with a final 4 in the semi-final on Tuesday morning, who were, Steve Lovell v Kenny Hibbitt & Dave Beasant v Derek Mountfield. Dave Beasant was our eventual winner on Tuesday afternoon, beating Steve Lovell 1 up, going up the last. Dave held his nerve and smacked it right down the middle and eventually had 3 putts to win the hole and Steve conceeded.
A great few days and a huge thank you to everyone concerned.

“As usual you have put on a real show and delivered a cracking event. As you know we bring along four of our most important customers and two of them, unprompted, said that this was the best they’ve ever attended (trust me, that’s high praise!).
I guess, having done it for twenty years, you have a tried and tested system for getting everything in place to work as seamlessly as it does. However I also know that every year will bring a host of unplanned challenges and issues which you, Nicky and Terry manage superbly to ensure that your guests only see the polished result.
Many thanks for all you help before and during the event and I wish you every success for the future. ”

“I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the FGC in June this year and your organisation and preparation were first class and exceptional. The girls and yourself made me feel very welcome from the first night until the last and helped me to relax and take part in such a wonderful occasion and event. It was everything that Russell had talked about and his very high praise of the tournament was not unfounded. ”
