Furniture industry colleagues from around the UK flocked to Northamptonshire in October to tee off at the National Golf Day, The Furniture Makers’ Company’s longest running charity event, helping raise £6,000.
Almost 80 golfers took part in the tournament at the Northamptonshire County Golf Club – ranked in the UK’s top 100 courses – on Wednesday 19 October, making it one of the best attended National Golf Days in recent years.
The day started with breakfast which was followed by an 18-hole Stableford competition with a shotgun start. After a great day of play, competitors sat down to a two-course lunch, with the day culminating with a prize giving ceremony, charity auction and raffle. The winners of the competition were:
- Team winner Jay-Be (pictured)
- Team runner up AIS
- Individual winner Tony Harvey (Castelan)
- Runner up Paul Mott (KI)
- Nearest the Pin Max Wood-Ives (Hypnos)
- Nearest the Pin Rob Sawyer (Castelan)
- Nearest the Pin Paul Newell (Maguire Advisers Ltd)
- Longest Drive Clayton Gore (Savoir Beds)
The Furniture Makers’ Company is very grateful for the companies and individuals that sponsored the event: Biesse UK, FIRA, Graham Marley, Häfele, Hypnos, KI, Maguire Advisers, NEJ Stevenson, Ocee Design and Savoir Beds.
Tony Attard OBE DL, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “I would like to say a wholehearted thank you to the golfers and our generous sponsors who helped make this event a great success. We are delighted that just over £6,000 has been raised for the charity.”
