Golf Classic

On 6 September this year we were once again able to enjoy the magnificent facilities at The Renaissance Club for our annual golf event.

We had 21 teams taking part and with a shotgun start we should all have started and finished at roughly the same time. This did not actually happen as some teams seemed to be enjoying the delights of the course a little longer than others!

The scoring was extremely high with our winners, Keenan Consultancy, achieving 96 points, just one less than last year’s record breaking score. Second with an impressive score of 94 were FMS Fire & Security and Sheridan & Pritchard were third, one behind on 93 points.

Colin Peacock collected the nearest the hole prize at the 15th hole with Guthrie Batchelor picking it up at the 17th hole. Our longest drive winner was Craig Heap with a huge drive on the 2nd and our "Beat the Pro" competition saw 26 winners, up from 7 last year, change of ‘Pro’ definitely required for next year!

Due to the kind generosity of everyone who attended the day our beneficiary the Broomhouse Centre in Edinburgh received £20,000 required to fund equipment for their outdoor play area.

As always we were very thankful to all the staff at The Renaissance for looking after us so well and to all the team hosts and their guests for their support in making it a truly memorable day.

A date for your diary – I am delighted to let you know that our 2019 event will take place at the Renaissance Club on Thursday 26 September.

FMS Fire & Security were "Runners Up".
