The 2017 Will Turner Memorial Golf Day took place at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa this week.
Lee Westwood Golf School student, Will Turner, tragically lost his life after a car accident in March 2015. In his memory an annual golf day was created to remember Will and his love of golf.
The day, organised by the Lee Westwood Golf School year 2 students, included 44 past and present pupils. With the sun shining and everyone in high spirits, the event was played on the Gainsborough course, using the Greensomes format.
Will’s parents, Julie and Martin Turner were there to support the players and alongside students Dominic Burgess and Nick Homewood presented the prizes.
Julie Turner said ‘Will would have enjoyed the day so much and we are so pleased to see many of his friends here keeping his memory alive, it means such a lot to us’.
‘Although it was emotional at times it was wonderful to see so many students come together to remember the person Will.’ Debbie Hynard, Lee Westwood Golf School.
The winning pair with a team gross of 70, nett 68 were Callum Pipe and Abbie Symmonds (pictured); Ronan Homer & Bill Noblett took second prize with Samee Allie & Ben Bushnell in third.
