Things were certainly heating up at their mini golf day – and we’re not just talking about the weather. Our own tour members couldn’t wait for the chance to build rapport with Orion’s most valued clients and to show the newbies how we roll on the South Coast Golf Tour.
With some time to spare before the two-tier tee-off everyone headed to the putting green to take part in our charity competition in aid of dizzy: support for diabetes. With several players scoring 16, on the countback it was Orion Lightning Protection’s very own Jason Harfield who was best at the test, winning a bottle pink Moet Champagne – but come on Jason, you could have given your guests a chance.
Nearest the Pin
In a test of precision and skill there were two ‘Nearest the pin’ competitions at Wildwood and two winners. Congratulations to South Coast Golf Tour members Paul Severn from Watson Associates, who was nearest at the 6th on the lakes course, and to Mark Perring from Coastal Copiers, who triumphed at the 2nd on the Parklands Course.
After nine holes on both the Parklands and Lakes courses, it was time to head in, where there was a cold beverage waiting for everyone at the bar courtesy of Orion Lightning – cheers Justin and Jason.
When it came down to it, Assistant Tour Director, Matt Clifton-Bowley from LWS Marketing was on top with a score of 37 points. A former champion of the Tour, Matt has been struggling to find his winning form lately, but the course at Wildwood certainly brought back his competitive streak.
But let’s not forget the Best Guest Award, a real favourite on the Tour, and this time it was won by Orion Lightning Protection’s valued guest Richard Townsend. It’s so important for us to meet new people on the Tour, and after you’ve played once you’re automatically part of the order of merit – so you can keep coming back!
