A golf day organised by the Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) turned out to be its ‘best by par’ raising approximately £3,500 for charity.
The event, at Branston Golf and Country Club, Staffordshire, saw 28 teams – made up from 34 of ADSA’s members – battling to take the top spot
Winners of the ADSA Cup were SDG Access, of Lincoln, who were delighted with their achievement – one member was so thrilled that he stood on his chair to enjoy a moment of celebration when the winning team was announced. Runners-up were new ADSA member Hephaestus Solutions (HSL), who played on home turf, based in nearby Burton upon Trent. And in third place, were last year’s champions, Copperjax Contract Maintenance, from Kent.
Individual awards were presented for ‘nearest the pin’ on the 16th, 17th and 18th holes, longest drive on holes three and ten and a novelty putting competition on the practice green. Some of the holes were sponsored by ADSA’s corporate members.
The day started with a golfers’ breakfast prior to tee-off on an 18-hole championship course and culminated with dinner at the Pavilion, attended by 140 people.
A raffle was held following dinner, with prizes including a round of golf at Enville Golf Course, a golf bag, a ‘pub in a box’, spirits, food hampers and gift vouchers.
All funds raised are being donated to ADSA’s chosen charities:
- Golf Fanatics – a charity that provides mobility equipment to young people
- Lighthouse Construction Charity
- Changes, Tamworth
ADSA MD Ken Price said: “The ADSA charity golf day is always a much anticipated date for the diary and this year, it was bigger and better than ever before. In the main, we were blessed with good weather and everyone had a great time.
“One of the highlights of the event, was the raffle from which we managed to raise a serious amount of money for our chosen charities and we would sincerely like to thank members, suppliers and partners who generously donated prizes.”
