Plumbers’ Annual Golf Day – A Great Success
The sun was shining and Liveryman Mick Munro our Golf Society Secretary had a smile on his face. This could only mean that the Annual Plumbers Golf Day at the beautiful (but tricky) heathland New Zealand Golf Club was all set up and ready to go.
With 14 Liveryman and 27 guests, the 41 golfers set out on the 18 holes with plenty of water and enthusiasm. As the temperature soared into the mid 30s centigrade, our octogenarian elder statesmen (as planned) retired to the cool of the clubhouse, whilst the “youngsters” strode on, trying to find ball after ball in the heather.
The reward for those that did were clear with some excellent scores being returned. After a sumptuous 4 course carvery lunch, the presentation ceremony was conducted, with prizes being presented by our Golf Society Captain Past Steward Richard Harvey.
Guest Winner (for the 3rd year running) with 41 points – Steve Barton
Livery Winner with 35 points – Steward Tony Peters
Other prizes were awarded to the runners-up; the longest Drive and two nearest the pins and for the golfer that tried hardest.
Renter Warden Elect Paul Nash gave a warm thank you to all those attending and to Mick Munro (ably assisted by Liveryman Don Munro) for all his excellent work in setting up a fabulous event. Paul then thanked Richard Harvey who has been our Golf Society Captain for the last two years. In that time we have won The Horners Trophy at Ashridge GC and also finished 7th out of 54 teams in The Prince Arthur Cup (the most prestigious event in the Inter-Livery Golfing calendar) at Walton Heath GC – our highest finish since 1972.
Finally Richard said his farewells and welcomed our incoming Golf Society Captain – Liveryman David Hannam.
An excellent day, with a number of other Liveries represented and a great day for all our guests whether they be business contacts or family and friends. Our grateful thanks to the Secretary and team at New Zealand Golf Club for all their hard work and help.
