Now in the 21st year the Stockport Grammar School’s Bursary Golf Day in association with Vernon Building Society saw golfers take to the course at Stockport Golf Club to raise money for the Bursary Fund.

Eighteen teams braved the great Stockport Summer and took to the greens on Thursday 13th June for the annual fundraising event. Congratulations to the Merchant Clipper team who lifted the trophy, second were the team from Adana Construction with Belle Vue Manchester in a close third place.


Congratulations to Adrian Knowles for winning the nearest the pin at the 16th and to Nick Ford for the longest drive on the 10th.


The event has raised a record breaking £11,100 for the Bursary Fund which supports children from less affluent backgrounds to benefit from the excellent education opportunities on offer at SGS with means-tested financial assistance with fees.
