We would like to thank Burgham GC for hosting this event. David Armstrong and his team could not have been more helpful in making all players and officials feel most welcome on the day. The course and catering was excellent. Burgham GC is in excellent condition and is a great venue to visit and play a round of golf.

Many of our entrants are now regulars who play and support our annual Senior Opens. Good to see and always welcome to attend.
