Greens Mower Invitational Event – 9 Hole Mixed Ambrose on 26th May 2019

The good weather order did not get through to BOM as it felt like Winter had definitely arrived early on Sunday 26th May but luckily the rain stayed away! Only 2 teams pulled out leaving a total of 68 players competing on both 9’s, amazing considering the weather. It was a superb response as originally only the back 9 was to be used for this event so thanks to all those who supported this great fundraising initiative, you will see the benefits on the greens with the addition of this new mower. The results of the golf events are below followed by the raffle results:
