Battle of the Stars Charity Golf Day
Battle of the Stars is an annual event that was inspired by the terrible floods of January 2011. Adam Hollioake made a call to arms to his close friends Dylan Campell, Ben Holland, Jeff White, Aaron Nye, Clint Sailes and Adam King.
These 7 close friends rather humbly called themselves Oceans 7 after the Oceans 11 team of Clooney, Pitt etc. The similarities ended at the fact there was more than one man in the group.
The inaugural event was played at Gainsborough Greens and featured 24 well known athletes from sports as far reaching as golf and iron man. The day started with food on the lawn watching Adam Scott give a master class whilst he went thru his repertoire of clubs and shots.
The serious action then began with the team being split up into groups of 4. One celebrity to each group. The action was Ambrose and the pace set was ferocious with some amazing scores being set on a perfect days weather. At the end of the day it was the Iron Women who came out ahead.
The finishing positions were:
