The National Porsche Centre Golf Challenge is an annual golfing event run under Stapleford rules which has been running for over ten years. Players from Porsche Centres all over the country compete in qualifying rounds for a place in the final that takes place in September each year. The winner of the national final then goes on to represent Porsche GB in the international final.
The qualifying round for Porsche Centre Tonbridge players took place at Knole Park Golf Club in July. At the event Mike Taylor finished in first place with 42 points, closely followed by David Holden and Adele Young with 36 and 34 points respectively.
Normally the top two attend the national final, but as David was unable to attend, Mike and Adele went on to represent the Centre at The Duke’s Course, St. Andrew’s on Monday 7 September.
Players and their partners stayed at the Old Course Hotel where they could familiarise themselves with the challenging course during a practice round over the weekend. The final round then took place all on one day and was followed by a gala dinner where the prizes were awarded.
Despite not making it through to the 2016 international finals, Mike and Adele played extremely well against very tough opposition.
From all at Porsche Centre Tonbridge, well done to the both of them!
