On Wednesday 19 June 2024, 43 pro’s and 129 amateur golfers joined West Nautical at the stunning Matfen Hall for the annual ProAM tournament. They were also joined by Aston Workshop and Carmoto who brought a selection of classic and supercars for the day.

The ProAM pairs together professional and amateur golfers to play an 18-hole competition with amazing prizes up for grabs including £10,000 for a hole in one prize and £3000 for the leading professional. The teams also had the opportunity to enjoy a 9-hole Par 3 competition before the main event, where they had the opportunity to win some amazing prizes. West Nautical also ran a raffle competition alongside, where players could win an overnight stay with breakfast and a four ball at Matfen Hall.

The event included breakfast on arrival and a barbecue upon the players return to the clubhouse. This year, Matfen Hall had a lovely stretch tent for the hospitality which was thoroughly enjoyed by the players as they were blessed with beautiful weather for this fantastic event.

Team Vickers Bet won the team event scoring a superb 19 under par with 91 points with team Mark Ridley close behind scoring 88 points. Team Stephen Kyle scored 87 points, team Martyn Jobling scored 85 points and last but not least Team Ally Hall scored 84 points.

The teams started arriving from 7:15am in preparation for their tee off times, with the first team tee-ing off at 8:30am and each team following 9 minutes later.

Competitions on the day included longest drive and closest to the pin. The hole in one prize was an amazing £10,000 which was sadly not won on the day. However, one of the players came extremely close driving their ball, which landed about a foot away from the hole. Everyone was watching with bated breath at this point.
