Everyone's a winner

NCE events: Charity Masters Golf Day

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER and a challenging course guaranteed near perfect conditions for last week's NCE Charity Masters golf day and helped players raise over £10,000 for disaster relief charity RedR.

The winning team from ACO Technologies proved that, despite the fast greens and clinging rough, the tight championship standard course at the Old Thorns Golf & Country Club in Liphook, Hampshire was tameable.

Eighty golfers took part in the competition playing in teams of four with the best two scores counting. But regardless of individual performances, all the players were treated to a great round of golf amid beautiful surroundings.

Help was also on hand at the clubhouse in the form of golf pro John Cook, whose shot-saver clinics helped to iron out even the best practised swing problems.

Entertainment during the evening prize-giving dinner was provided by Peter McGovern, head pro at the Belfry which this weekend hosts the Ryder Cup. The charity auction of items including signed sporting memorabilia, a day at the Ascot races and lunch with NCE's editor, raised more than £800.

Results First place overall: ACO Technologies - Brian Foley, Paul Bond, Mike Smith, Duncan Priddle Second place overall: Parsons Brinckerhoff - Gordon Borer, Tony Mustard, Kevin Williams, Dennis Ives Best front nine: NCE 2 - Mark Hansford, Rodney Walker, Richard Tomlin Best back nine: Railtrack - Donal McCabe, Jane Terry, Jay Merritt, Steve Fosh.

Many thanks to all the companies that took part in the NCE Charity Masters 2002 and to those that also sponsored holes and provided prizes on the day.
