Another good day was had by all the teams who took part in this year’s annual golf tournament at The Oaks Golf Club on Thursday 9 May 2013. The Nutt family once again looked after us all very well and the weather held out for most of the day. Main sponsors S G Petch provided an entertaining hole-in-one competition for the main prize of a Fiat 500 car on the 7th hole, but despite the players’ best efforts the car was sadly returned to the garage at the end of the day! Other sponsors were Turners Garage Ltd, Grays & Co and Filplastic. Sixteen teams of four players of all ages and abilities took part in the golf day this year, including many OPs, current and former parents as well as a staff team, all battling it out for the President’s Cup and having lots of fun and banter along the way! Here are the results:
1st Prize and The Tom Nash President’s Cup Winners 2013: D and 3 A’s – Aiden Beattie, Darren Beattie (89-00), Anita Beattie, Adrian Glew
2nd Prize: The Oaks – Ed Nutt (95-06), Jack Bolam (95-05), Alex Pinion (95-06), Joe Butcher (94-06)
3rd Prize: All the President’s Men … and a Woman – Tom Nash (68-77), Nick Baines, Alison King, Stan Anderson
Nearest the pin: Dan Atkinson (04-11)
Nearest the pin in two: Oliver Smith (07-12)
Longest drive: Andrew Welton (96-06)
The date for next year’s golf day will be Friday 9 May 2014, so watch this space and hope that as many OPs as possible will be able to support the event by entering a team or sponsoring a prize.
