Parker Building Supplies hosts Annual Golf Day

Published:  10 August, 2015

Parker Building Supplies has hosted its Annual Parker Golf Day, raising over £15,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

While the Open Championship competitors at St Andrews were forced to battle torrential rain and winds, the weather at East Sussex National proved to be near perfect for the golf event.

Attended by over 260 customers and suppliers, the proceedings began with a highly successful Trade Exhibition in the National Suite. Forty teams of four players then took on 18 holes of birdies, bogies and bunkers on the lush greens of the ESN's East and West courses.

The team events were won by Gow Roofing and Rod Allen and his able lieutenants. Individual winners were Luke Broomfield of Team Paul Rodemark and Richard Smith of Team Phil Belfield.

Prizes for Nearest the Pin were won by Steve Hampton of Team Allen and Pavestone’s Russell Judd. The Longest Drive winners were Darren Hill of Rowlinson Timber and Adam Skelton of Total Project Management.

The golf challenge was followed by an excellent three-course dinner, fun and games and a charity auction hosted by Heart FM's Jack the Lad. In all, over £15,000 was raised on the day.
