Finalists in the DF Communications Business Golf League have raised £700 for the British Heart Foundation.
Teams from 12 north-east companies teed-off at the prestigious Castle Course in St Andrews after a summer of competition. Greg Davidson and Mike Halliday of Fugro clinched top prize. In addition to the trophy, the duo also collected a Castle Course framed flag and a magnum of champagne each for their efforts.
The Premier Oil team of Keith Hendry and Craig Smith finished as runners-up, while Jim Campbell and Neale Watson of Stork came third.
As part of a combined stableford competition, Fugro won courtesy of a better inward half, having tied on 59 with Premier Oil. The Stork team finished with a score of 58.
Craig Forsyth, sales director at DF Communications, said: “It was a fantastic day out and everyone involved seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. It was also a great opportunity to raise some valuable funds for the British Heart Foundation which will help them continue their terrific work.
“Congratulations to Greg and Mike who put in an excellent performance to clinch the trophy. Conditions proved tricky at times as a result of the fog but, overall, the standard of play was very high.
“The league is continuing to go from strength to strength with a good spirit building as the players get to know each other better. Taking part in the competition provides a valuable opportunity for business people to network outside of work.
“Attention is already turning to next year’s competition which we are confident will be another success.”
Iain Powell of DF Communications and Graeme Willox of Strachans shared the prize for nearest the pin.
DF Communications sponsored and organised the long-running league for a third consecutive year. Each year the winning team nominates a charity to benefit from funds raised during the subsequent year’s event. Money raised from this year’s tournament will be donated to the British Heart Foundation, which was nominated by the 2013 winners Undersea Sense.
This year’s winning team, Fugro, will select the charity to benefit from the 2015 competition.
