Launch of the Christy Greene Memorial Trophy
After a long and special relationship with Newlands, Christy Greene has left a wonderful legacy behind him and on Tuesday 23rd April, Nessa Greene presented us with a beautiful trophy in her Dad’s name. There will be a qualifying round on Tuesday 7 May for the match play phase, which will continue throughout the summer. Nessa informed me after the launch that the 7th May is actually the second anniversary of her father’s death. So it is rather apt that we have the qualifier on that date. It was meant to be.
We are very grateful to Nessa and with the establishment of this new competition in Christy’s name, his memory will live long in Newlands Golf Club.
