Silver Lining's first Golf Day is a hole in one!
On Friday November 10th, we teed up at Skylark Golf and Country Club for an enjoyable day of golfing greatness with some of our customers and local businesses. We kicked off proceedings with hot drinks and bacon rolls in the clubhouse; it was a nippy, blustery morning so some warming beverages were much appreciated. Then it was off to the course for 18 holes of fairway fun.
We pitched a little tuck-shop marquee midway round the course to keep our hungry golfers supplied with hot and cold drinks and a selection of tasty treats. We also furnished our attendees with caps and travel mugs to keep them at optimal golfing efficiency. There were plenty of unfortunate slices and wind-lofted drives sailing into shrubbery (and other people’s fairways), but ultimately all our teams managed to pull together and meet the challenge of a classic Texas Scramble.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper round of golf without a little competition, so we prepared a few awards for the best (and worst) of the bunch. The Longest Drive award went to Marc Roth, while Richard Kirby and Matt Brown took home Closest to the Pin on the 5th and 17th holes respectively. As for the Best Four-Ball, the team from Delta Ventilation were worthy winners, while Bernards were runners-up. Conversely, the folks from Networkers, plus our own director of sales Warren Naude, earned the dubious honour of Worst Four-Ball. (We suspect Warren let the side down, poor show Wazza!)
Capping off the evening was entertainment from globe-trotting trick shot maestro Geoff Swain. Geoff’s pinpoint accuracy, oversized drivers, and general ability to hit the ball where he wanted it impressed us all. If you ever have the opportunity to check out Geoff’s unique talents, we highly recommend it.
Overall, our inaugural Golf Day was a jolly good time, and we’re looking forward to doing it all again next year – hopefully bigger and better!
