The Ben Simpson Open 2010 was held on Saturday 7th August at Farleigh Court Golf Club and was started with the inaugural one putt challenge, won by Michael Skinner. A 31-strong field of friends and family turned out to remember Ben Simpson and support CRY for a sixth year running.
The event was eventually won by Peter Wiles in his first year of competition, but he was run close with 4 players finishing on 43 stableford points – Peter to win only on count back.
Nick Buddell and John Gadd took home the ‘closest to the pin’ prizes and the mighty Ian Ritchie won the Longest Drive (he must work out!).
The day finished in the evening sunshine with a BBQ at Beckenham Cricket Club and prize giving at Ben’s memorial bench. In all £730 was raised by this year’s event and we are all already looking forward to next year.
A big thank you to all involved, especially those who helped organise the day’s events. This day keeps getting bigger and better and it is truly a wonderful way for us to remember Ben’s life.
