Thursday 1st September saw 16 teams compete for the Champion Group’s 5th Annual Charity Golf day, this year held at Weybrook Park Golf Club in Basingstoke, in aid of the Hampshire Hospitals Charity and their Magic Lion appeal https://www.hampshirehospitalscharity.org/the-magic-lion-appeal
Conditions were challenging with a variable breeze and the course playing like a links course at times mixed with some light showers and sunshine. Teams took part in a stableford competition with best two scores from four counting towards the final scores.
After a tight fought competition, the SW Contractors team walked away with 1st Prize, notable mentions also go out to Carl Vernon Swimming pools (2nd) and Metro Bank (3rd).
Longest drive went to Luis Kirby and Nearest the Pin to Will Taylor.
The wooden spoons were collected by a joint team of Phillips Law and the Champion Group.
A great day was had by all and finished off with a meal provided by Weybrook Park, a presentation from Hampshire Hospitals Charity representative Sabrina Marsden, and a raffle.
The total raised for the day was £4,840.
We’d like to thank all players who took part and purchased raffle tickets and all companies who kindly donated prizes including HR That Helps, The Champion Group, PDCM, Cotton Graphics, Francis Construction, We are Brand Box, Andwell Brewery and Champion Tool Hire.
Special mention to the team at Weybrook Park who looked after us brilliantly and to Fyffes for providing the bananas to keep the players going in-between breakfast and lunch.
We very much look forward to repeating it all again in 2023. Register your interest now as demand Is likely to outstrip supply.
