MPBA Golf Day 10th July 2014

posted: 24th Jul 2014

Our decision to return to Ullesthorpe again this year was a great success and surpassed all expectations with 43 players off the tee and 60 members having a meal in the evening a great time was had by all.

To add to our enjoyment at the evening dinner the MPBA with the assistance of our sponsors have raised £1500.00 for the Jonathan Fallas Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the generosity members on the night.

Our day started early on a very sunny morning with continued good weather throughout the day – lots of red faces returning after their round. I think it was the sun and not their scores!

Again this year as a non-golfer it was difficult for me to understand some of the 'golf talk' but smiled sweetly and hoped that I got away with the lack of knowledge. Keep this up and I will understand the game but not sure I would have the patience to spend 4hrs hitting balls around.

The Chairman would like to extend his thanks to all that attended it makes all the planning worthwhile to see members having a good old chin wag and banter  - however he is still trying to fathom out why one team stopped for lunch half way through their game. He had to admit it was a first for him!

Our plans for next year will be announced as soon as possible, keep your eyes on the web site for more information.
