Kevin why did you choose Wintonbury Hills GC as your home course?
I came to Wintonbury because the course conditions are outstanding.

When did you join the Wintonbury Men’s Golf Association (WMGA)?
6 years ago I became a member in 2013.

For you, what makes the WMGA experience special?
The respect towards each other is priceless.

What events do you look forward to the most?
I love playing in all of the Interclub matches, I enjoy the team spirit of the Charity Events, and playing in the end-of-year 2-Ball event is always fun.

What does it mean to you to be the Bill Starkie Award winner for 2019?
No words can explain the emotions I have being selected. Let’s just say that it’s such a high honor to me.

Who completes your dream foursome, and where are you playing?
I would love my 2 sons, Vincent & Harrison, and my grandson, Trent to be standing with me on the 1st tee at Wintonbury.

Any final comments?
I tip my hat to all of the Staff for making every Sunday so enjoyable.
