Thanks to all who attended this great day on what was probably the hottest day of the year! There was a great atmosphere beforehand while people prepared for the day ahead although preparation mostly consisted of chatting to new people, copious amounts of tea, coffee and bacon butties, and not much in the way of warming up!
There was a wide variety of ability levels of player on the day from rank beginner with borrowed equipment right up to seasoned veterans and all points in between (names have been left out to protect the (not so) innocent!)
There were four competitions being run on the day, the Stableford rules competition, Nearest the Pin 4th Hole, Nearest the Pin 14th and a 2's competition.
The Stableford competition prize was kindly donated by Citroen Blackburn courtesy of Matt Murphy. The winner received the use of a Citroen DS5 HDi (160Bhp) DSport 6 speed manual for a week fully insured.
The nearest the pin and 2's prizes were sponsored by Well Paid.
The winner of the Stableford Competition was James Adler with an impressive 32 points
Congratulations also go to Anthony Pauls for claiming the nearest the pin prize on the 4th and at the same time scoring the only 2 of the day.
Nobody actually hit the 14th green in one (heat exhaustion was the most offered excuse!) so a card was randomly selected to give out this prize which went to Ros Hendren. Any suggestion that she rigged the cards so that hers was chosen are entirely unfounded!
The day was rounded off with socialising in the 19th Hole where the days achievements were celebrated and missed chances mourned!
If you would like to be part of the action for the next golf day join the OBN Golf Society Group here and get the chance to spend time on the course with networking partners, clients and prospects.
Thanks also go to the Pro shop, catering staff and bar staff of Crompton & Royton Golf Club, who made us feel very welcome and looked after us well.
If anyone who attended would like to add any memorable moments of the day as comments that would be great.
