Pro Golfers visit Low Laithes Golf Club

Professional Richard Law, formerly of Low Laithes, teeing off

In a first for our club, we welcomed 56 professional and low amateur players for the “Low Laithes Classic” on September 16, which was part of the newly formed 2020 Pro Tour. Organisers and players were impressed by our level of club management, the course condition, particularly the lightning quick greens, and the number of members who volunteered on the day.

The event was won by two-time US Open participant John Parry from Harrogate with an impressive 65, 6 under par. Low Laithes amateur Matthew Wright impressed by beating many of the professionals with a 72. The live stream from the day can be viewed on the Low Laithes Golf Club’s facebook page. WEBSITE:

Once the strokeplay event was completed, the top 16 shoot out was a knockout for £500. Nick Poppleton from Wath was nearest to the pin (from 100 yards), and advanced to the next round.

Another event has been booked for 2021. We hope it can be a bigger event, and that spectators will be able to see professionals in action.

The event was sponsored by Gary Hurst Plant & Vehicle Repairs of Ossett with additional support from Oldroyd Maintenance Services.
