On Friday 7th September, our Managing Director, Glen Banks, was invited by IT Desk to take part in the Hallam FM Cash for Kids Golf Day at Tapton Park Golf Club in Chesterfield.
Joining Steve Harper, Commercial Director at IT Desk, Shaun Wheatley, Director at Palmer Construction, and Andy (apologies, the last name was never discovered!) from HMRC, we were met with torrential rain on arrival, slowing to a fine drizzle on the opening tee, and eventually giving way to a sunny and breezy afternoon’s entertainment.
As a team, we played well, scoring heavily in the opening holes, and we scored a huge 85 points, which we felt would have been enough to place us in the prizes. However, somehow Shane Young and his team from the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce managed to produce a totally unbelievable score to win the tournament, and the IT Desk team actually placed a very creditable fourth!
After the round, there was an entertaining segment from Tricky Shot Rob, followed by a curry buffet.
The hospitality from the course was superb, the course was in fine shape, and a good afternoon of golf and networking was enjoyed by all.
A final thank you once again to IT Desk for their hospitality and company on the day.
