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 £6000.
Almost 80 golfers took part in the tournament at the Northamptonshire County Golf Club – ranked in the UK’s top 100 courses – on Wednesday 19th 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
- 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)
