Visitors to North Side Golf Club were given an extra boost – golfing lessons from professions Mark McNulty and Nick Price.

The pair came to the Islands to take part in the Cayman Red Cross Golf Tournament which has been hailed a huge success.

And before anyone teed off for the main competition, budding young golfers were given top tips from the pros in a specially arranged “kids clinic”.

While it may have been a little unfair for the professionals to take part in the actual competition, their points were not added to the total scores of the teams.

The duo played with two teams on the Saturday morning and two in the afternoon.

In total more than 200 golfers took part in the event which was the 14th Annual Royal Bank of Canada sponsored Cayman Islands Red Cross Golf Tournament.

CIRC director Jondo Obi said: “It was fantastic the way everyone came together. The volunteers, sponsors and supporters helped to make it such a success.

“There was a real feel of community spirit about the whole day. The turn out was fantastic with 80 golfers playing on the Friday, 76 on Saturday morning and another 80 on Saturday afternoon.”

The overall winners of the competition were a group of friends who formed the team, Team Extreme.

Golfer Nick Price, who has had 50 professional wins in his career, said: “I really must take my hat off to Jondo who has done an incredible job to pull off a very comfortable, easy and fun day.”

Mark McNulty, who has 59 professional wins under his belt, added: “It was great to be here and take part in this fine fundraiser.

“From the perspective of big city traveling, it’s nice to get involved with the Island and its fundraising. I’ve had fun and met some very nice people.”
