Over 30 guests attended our annual Golf Day this year at Cookridge Hall, Leeds, with everyone playing from their full handicap on this par 72 course.
The course itself challenged a few players with 9 water holes and the tricky feature, hole number 6 with a par 3, which is over water with a two tier green.
The day started well with everyone remembering their clubs and good form from the 1st tee-off. Some great positions and noises were heard from various guests and it looked like it could be a pretty close round.
By the time everyone had made it to the 9th hole, you could see the confidence had waned a little with a few people now doing the grass walk and the tree studying in order to retrieve their lost balls.
On the 9th hole in particular everyone seemed to be favouring the trees on the right, with some loud rustling and branch cracking.
The final hole is right in front of the clubhouse where they were greeted with a cold beer and some hearty food.
The winning team of the day were; Jason Stowe, Andrew Cooper, James Winter, Nick Child with a hugely impressive 102 points.
The top 3 golfers of the day were Jason Stowe in 1st place with 44 points, Mark Cooper in 2nd place with 40 points and Alan Sheard in 3rd place with 39 points. Our very own Managing Director, Chris Harding did not make the top 3!
Nearest the pin on the 6th hole was Simon Dixon, with another nearest the pin on the 18th hole came from one of JPG’s Directors Matthew Potter. Simon Rispin managed the longest drive of the day.
A mention must go to Nicholas Prescott who worked extremely hard throughout the course with his great magic trick of vanishing balls.
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
