Friday 21st September was Wallace Hind’s 16th Annual Golf Day, held at the lovely Thorney Lakes Golf Club in Peterborough.
It normally never rains in Thorney for the Golf day, however, it certainly did! In fact, it poured. Waterproofs went on and umbrellas went up. The drops falling out of the sky showed no sign of easing, but we all soldiered on nonetheless, in true British style.
The perseverance of our clients and staff made us very proud indeed: socks were dampened but spirits were not. The effort was not without fruition either - we managed to raise over £600 for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.
The bad weather did not seem to affect the golf. RR Donnelly did a trophy sweep, taking the title of Team Winners as well as both first and second place for the Individual Winners. Richard Adams flew the flag for Wallace Hind, whilst Julie White of Wyboston Lakes scored one for the ladies, by claiming the award for Longest Drive.
The new Yellow Ball competition brought much entertainment. Each team was given a yellow ball to hit round all 18 holes, but only four made it back to the club house. The winning ball came to glory with 36 Stableford Points.
As the day’s golfing came to an end, everyone made their way back to the club house to warm up and have a much deserved drink or two. A plate of steaming hot bangers and mash was served as the perfect reward for everyone’s perseverance and stories of the day’s events were soon being regaled.
It comes as no surprise however, that we are considering moving next year’s Golf Day to the summer months. Keep your eyes and ears open for the announcement for next year’s date!
