The Competition Continues – The UHY Hacker Young & uPhotogifts Golf Day

Written by Admin on . Posted in Uncategorized

Joint company golf days are always amongst the liveliest events on the Tour with an added level of banter and rivalry, each team boasting they have the best players out on the course. They also provide a great opportunity for networking in a wider circle, with more people, talent, businesses and clients to find out about.Group_photo We’re pleased to say, that the recent UHY Hacker Young and uPhotogifts company golf day on Tuesday 21st June at Piltdown Golf Club was just the same, full of both opportunity and fun – on and off the golf course.

Congratulations to…

Phil Hawkins (Total Print and Display) was the best player out on the course, with South Coast Golf Tour season ticket holder Bob Grace (WPA Healthcare) coming a close second  and uPhotogifts’ very own Tsolag Keoshgerian finishing up the top 3. However they didn’t have the drive or skill that day to perform best on the hardest hole in Sussex, the 4th hole. That prize went to both Peter Sebry (Taylor Wimpey) and Stuart Jefford (H B Ingredients) – well done guys! Congratulations also go to Charity Putting winner Paul Burr (Quickshift Couriers) and the 2 from 4 team competition winners, Tsolag Keoshgerian (uPhotogifts), Phil Hawkins (Total Print and Display), Chris Hyland (4PS Marketing) and Paddy O’leary (Unibind Ireland.) With just three rounds to go, take a look at the order of merit as it stands, and see all the results from Piltdown here.

A new team triumphs

At this event, there are two team competitions. As well as the normal 2 from 4 team scoring system, every player also plays for the team who invited them to the event, uPhotogifts, UHY Hacker Young or the South Coast Golf Tour. This always makes for some great additional rivalry on the day. Whilst UHY Hacker Young ruled the course in 2015, this year there was a change in the wind, and it was uPhotogifts who came out on top, with the South Coast Golf Tour coming a close second. So that’s one to uPhotogifts, and one to UHY Hacker Young – let’s hope the South Coast Golf Tour season ticket holders can show what their made of next year.

The Longest Drive & Mystery Ball –Tour 2016 Round 3

Written by Admin on . Posted in Gatton Manor Golf Club, Tour Events

On Wednesday 1st June we revisited a South Coast Golf Tour favourite – The 5 Rings Telecom company golf day at Gatton Manor Golf Club. Yes, they loved the last five years as a fixture on the Tour so much that they came back again, and the sixth year was just a successful as the first five.

The Mystery Ball

Additional games are an anticipated feature of the 5 Rings Telecom company golf days, Saving the mystery balland this year was no different with all teams taking part in ‘The Mystery Ball’. Players take it turns, hole by hole, to use the coloured ball. The aim of the game is to score the most points using this ball – before you lose it of course! And some teams went to great lengths to avoid the embarrassment of losing their mystery ball, see Ian MacKendrick from Frenkel Topping wading through the weeds to find his. Despite his best efforts his team still fell behind, leaving it to Peter Raynsford (5 Rings Telecom), Harvey Osler (ODT Solicitors), Chris Sewell (Active Information Systems Ltd) and Trevor Weare (Active Information Systems Ltd) to take the prize.

The winners

Team_winnersCongratulations to Adam Westwood (Titan Scaffolding) who was two points clear of second place Abee Hameed (Ashtead Stores) and third place Nick Dumbleton (ETI.) Not only did he impress in the individual competition but he helped his teammates Jason Harfield (Orion Lightning Protection) and Ian MacKendrick (Frenkel Topping) rise to the top of the team competition. Being home to the longest hole in the South East of England, a back-breaking 645 yard, Gatton Manor provides the opportunity for a unique competition, ‘The Longest Drive’. As players lined up to hit the ball as far as they could down the fairway, this year it was Tony Harvey (Dynamic Cloud Services) who was able to beat last year’s winner, our very own Tour Director, David Fluke. See all of the results from the day here.
