New to the South Coast Golf Tour line-up this year is Ifield Golf Club, the tricky parkland course on the outskirts of Crawley, West Sussex. On the Friday 13th May it played host to the Carpenter Box company golf day, where Carpenter Box’s guest list of highly valued clients came together with our own South Coast Golf Tour season ticket holders, to put into place some foundations for fruitful business relationships whilst battling it out with each other on the golf course.
Congratulations to the event champion Peter Crown (a Carpenter Box Guest) and the winning team consisting of Graham Terry (Carpenter Box), Paul Froome (Sussex Transport) and Nigel Davidson (PDT Solicitors).
We are now two events into the 2016 Tour, so let’s take a look at how the competition stands at present.
Order of merit standings
After round two, we have two leading contenders in the Order of Merit race; Robin Keeler (M R Electrical Services Guest) at the Cowdray GC event, and Peter Crown (Carpenter Box guest) from the last event at Ifield GC with 10 points each. Out of our season ticket holders, it is Derek Steel (Jacobs Steel) and Ian MacKendrick (Frenkel Topping) who are leading the way for the rest with 9 points apiece. See the full order of merit results lists here and watch this space to see how the rest of the year unfolds.
Charity putting update
The charity putting competition never fails to sprinkle some fun on our day of golf and it raises money for a great cause, supporting the charity dizzy: support for diabetes. Even the best golfers can be caught out on the putting green, but so far the two tour players to master the challenge are Jools Chaffer (dizzy: support for diabetes) and Nigel Lee (CF0 solutions.) But will they keep the edge throughout the year? Keep up-to-date with all the latest scores here.
