The Ray Murray Golf Challenge 2019

Prostate Cymru’s annual golf day, the Ray Murray Golf Challenge, took place on Friday 17th May at Machynys Peninsula Golf Club in Llanelli. The golf day is one of the charity’s key events in their annual calendar and is supported by a number of individuals and businesses from across Wales.

On arrival golfers were invited to take part in a number of small fundraising activities such as guessing the number of tees in the jar. Following some practice on the driving range and a coffee and bacon roll, the teams took to the course to start the competition with a shotgun start. Golfers enjoyed eighteen holes of golf on the Nicklaus championship course in suitable weather conditions. A raffle was held and prizes were presented to teams and individuals in the evening after a delicious two-course meal.

The winning team were the Alto Rebels from office technology firm AltoDigital, successfully retaining their title from 2018. BMI Healthcare Werndale Hospital and law firm Blake Morgan LLP placed second and third respectively. Gareth Gamblins from Team Deadly won the prize for nearest the pin and Paul Doherty from Blake Morgan won the longest drive. The sweeps winners were ambassador Matt Murray from Team Murrray for guessing the number of lost balls on the course, ambassador Eddie Butler from the Prostate Cymru team for guessing the number of tees in the jar and Andrew Street from Aecom who correctly guessed where Prostate Cymru Chairman Andy Thomas’ first shot was going to land on hole 16 as part of the Spot the Surgeons Drive game. The prizes were presented by Ray Murray’s family Lyn, Matt and Rob Murray.
