Golf Day 2016

Thursday 15th September 2016

Waldringfield Golf Course


I think we can safely say that the clubs first attempt at a Golf day was without doubt a success, from the sponsorship, and a big thank you to Nigel Wallace and Digital Copier Systems, the weather, where we couldn’t have asked for anything more, other than it being a little cooler, the course, testing for everyone, the meal, which was splendid and the participants, who all appeared to have a cracking day, you have to love it when players only complaint is about the heat in Mid-September.

For the club, like all such events, it is about raising funds to keep the club going, while it is also very much about trying to ensure the participants have an enjoyable experience, and hopefully come back ‘next year’ and I think it was successful on both accounts.

There were no ‘Winners & Losers!’ just some who had better days than others, all played in good spirit, although there was an eagerness to do well, and everyone took it seriously when playing, you get that competitive edge when people, keen to do well in sport and in life come together. All in all a pretty good day.

Thanks to everyone who participated hopefully we will see you all next year.

There were three individual prizes on offer, longest drive, apparently that doesn’t mean how far you came by car to get there. Nearest the pin and individual single score winner based on a points system that I have absolutely no intention of even attempting to explain.

There were also Team awards for the top three teams, so while no cash prizes were on offer everybody likes to have a trophy in their cabinet which of course helped towards that competitive edge
