East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce held their Annual Golf Day, sponsored by Prism UK, on Wednesday 21st June 2023 at Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club, in Whitegate, Cheshire – and what a fabulous day it was.
The day started with registration, delicious bacon brioche rolls, tea and coffee, shortly followed by a Putting Competition sponsored by Astbury Mere Care Home, a fun but competitive opportunity to win a beautiful glass trophy which went to Harry Jackson from Richborough Estates.
Out on the course, the sun shone after a very short shower just as the players were teeing off, Jackie Randles and Liz Longmore from East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce were sat at Hole 10 seeing teams through, taking team photographs and watched each team take their shots.
Halfway through the afternoon Terry, from Vale Royal Golf Club along with Liz Longmore from East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce drove around the course on a golf buggy to offer drinks and cookies to all the players, complimentary of East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.
Once all the teams were back, a lovely Roast Beef Carvery dinner, Lemon Meringue Tart, tea, and coffee was served in The Great Hall after which the prize giving took place.
The Longest Drive was out on Hole 15 and the trophy went to winner Mike Watson from Active Cheshire, the winner of the Nearest the Pin on hole 6 went to Peter Thorpe from Reliance Medical and the individual lady winner went to Anne Sheldon from ‘The Green Rangers Team’.
In third place were Senior Aerospace Bird Bellows, second place was won by Richborough Estates Team B and the winning team were The Green Rangers, (Jon Whitby from Sales Geek, Steve Vare from SPV Consultancy, Anne Sheldon and Pete Wilcox).
