Keen golfers enjoy another terrific corporate event

Golf enthusiasts from a range of Gloucestershire companies took part in the Roberts Limbrick corporate golf day yesterday (Thursday).

Golfers from a range of county firms participated in the event at the Puckrup Hall Golf Club in Tewkesbury, which was the second year back since Covid. 

Joining players from the Gloucester-based firm of architects and designers were golfers from various planning, building and architectural firms.

Companies represented included St Modwen, Robert Hitchins, Hewer FM, E G Carter and Barnwood Construction, to name but a few.

Punchline editor Mark Owen, who took part in the event, said: "There's a stream of charity and corporate golf days and Roberts Limbrick seems to start the season.

"They increased the numbers this year and there were 72 players playing a Texas Scramble.

"The weather was absolutely glorious. Golf courses have been struggling and haven't been able to open because of the sheer amount of rain we've had but yesterday it held off and you couldn't have asked for a better day. Puckrup was in an amazing condition."

Although the event is not a charity golf day as such, it still raised £1,000 for the James Hopkins Charity.

Mark added: "Everyone is really nice and friendly and it's a good craic. Although some of the players might be competitors, there's mutual respect there and mutual friendships. It's one of my favourite events of the year."

The winning team consisted of Wayne Organ, director of Roberts LImbrick, who organised the event, and he was joined by Phil Martin, MD of Martin Commercial Properties, Simon Tothill of Robert Hitchins and Jamie Payne of St Modwen.

John Hearn won the longest drive while nearest the pin winners were Alex Barber, Deri Price, Dan Pickery, Emyr Davies and Phil Martin.

Mark Owen won the first game of heads and tails with Teresa Hazlewood winning the second.

Mark paid tribute to Danielle Cox, Roberts Limbrick's marketing and admin assistant, for all her work in organising the event.
