Richard Campey of Campey Turfcare Systems presents The Bert Cross Memorial Trophy to Peter Hogan
Richard Campey of Campey Turfcare Systems presented the recently re-named Bert Cross Memorial Trophy to Mr. Peter Hogan, winner of the Bert Cross Memorial Golf Competition hosted by the North West Section of BIGGA.
Forty one players took part in the competition at Wilmslow Golf Club, and Peter won with a score of 39, which is no mean feat on an Open Championship qualifying course.
A keen and able golfer, Bert Cross had a long association with BIGGA, serving as Northern Regional Chairman and on the National Board of Management until as recently as last year. He died in the same year he was elected President of the North West Section after being its secretary for 30 years, and it is in his honour that the Presidents Cup has been re-named the Bert Cross Memorial Trophy, sponsored by Campey Turfcare Systems.
“We welcome this opportunity to be able to celebrate Bert’s life in this small way,” said Richard “in memory of a valued and respected colleague and a much loved individual who devoted a huge effort to his charitable interests as well as contributing significantly to the golfing industry.”
Bert and wife Marie were dedicated to helping over 270 orphans, all living with either AIDS or HIV, at the Kasisi Orphanage in Zambia, making regular trips to deliver clothes and much needed medical supplies.
