Are you getting enough greens?

The NCE Charity Masters takes place at Camberley Heath Golf Club on 10 May 2001.

CONSTRUCTION'S GOLFERS should register their teams immediately to be certain of securing a place at NCE 's first ever charity golf day.

The NCE Masters event is just six weeks away and has already attracted a clutch of teams ready to battle for the inaugural trophy.

But places at the historic Camberley Heath Golf Club in Surrey, an Open qualifying course, are limited and companies are urged to reserve their places straight away to avoid disappointment.

Organisation for the competition is also moving ahead rapidly with a number of companies already pledging sponsorship to boost the fund raising effort.

The event is expected to raise £10,000 for engineering disaster relief charity RedR and NCE will be producing a special issue to celebrate the charity's vital work. But as well as raising valuable cash, the golf day should also provide participants with an excellent team building and networking opportunity.

So far the event remains unaffected by the foot and mouth epidemic and organiser Chris Hoare is confident it will stay this way.

'The course is still playing at the moment and there is no real sign that there will be any restrictions imposed by May, ' said Hoare. 'We are confident this will continue but will of course keep a close eye on developments.'

Despite these fears, teams have so far been entered from across the industry - consultants, contractors and clients.

In response to demand, there will also be a limited number of places at the event for individual entries.

However, the Masters remains a team competition with teams made up of four golfers.

There will be also be individual and fun prizes on the day plus the opportunity to test your skills against the professionals - out-drive them or chip closer.

The day will be rounded off with a gala dinner with entertainment, prize giving and fund raising events, providing an excellent opportunity not only to raise cash for RedR but also for you to reinforce and make new industry contacts.
