29th Aug 2017

The MPBA annual golf day we are delighted to say was again a great success this year.

The morning started with a Trick Shot Demonstration by ex-professional golfer David Edwards sponsored by Genquip/Groundhog, Wernick Group and Pickering

A record number of 80 members and guests teed off having breakfast baps in the clubhouse starting the day under a cloudy sky.

Not letting this worry them they played the Ullesthorpe course with enthusiasm and a lot of banter. Players were followed around by David taking a video of their play (oh dear).

Over the course tees were sponsored by our main sponsor Pickering, Aquatec, Aurora Lighting, and Stackright

Halfway house (9th Tee) was a great surprise to find their hosts AJC/Easycabin had sited a welfare unit stocked with refreshments to see them on their way refreshments were also contributed by Aquatec. The bonus to members was Lisa Gillett(AJC) Katie Potter and Helen Munro(Aquatec) were there to see ensure that they were fed and watered before they were sent on their way.

After a long day where the weathered improved members gathered again in the club house to share their hits and misses on the course. It really is worth sitting in the background as an observer?

Our evening dinner started with pre -dinner drinks – with 100 guests for the evening.

Following dinner, we were entertained by David showing a video of the players of the day with a Peter Allis commentary, surprisingly no one left the room, there was however a lot of laughter and banter.


This year our chosen charity was Candlelighters for whom we raised an outstanding £3000 with the generosity of the members.

Results of the day’s events:

Team Winners – AJC Trailers Limited

Single Winner – Marc Prince / Welfare 4 Hire Limited

Without the continued support and contribution of members we would not be able to raise money for charity projects that members nominate – if you have a charity that you would like to help in 2018 please let us know, In the last 4years we have raised a total of £14,250.
