The golfing gods delivered the weather as 23 customers, suppliers and staff members took to the fairways to play in the 15th staging of the Mortons Print Golf Day on May 16th at the Forest Pines Hotel and Golf complex.
With a mixture of old foes and new faces teeing it up in glorious May sunshine, although a few thought it was foggy as they decided to try alternative ‘shots’ the night before, the standard of golf was again competitive on the demanding Forest and Pines layouts.
Newcomers led the path to the prize table as Darryl Cox, from The London Taxi Drivers Association, led the way with 34 points, winning on countback from another first timer, Danny Lockwood of the Yorkshire Golfer. Veteran and stalwart of the industry John Marriott of Fuji took third place. Nearest the pin went to Wayne Sandiland, while Ken Calderwood of Local World smashed the longest drive.
The coveted Barry Leatherland Memorial Cup, which is awarded for the top Mortons staff member, went to another first timer in Jim Blyth with 34 points.
In thanking everyone for taking time out of their busy schedules, Ian Fisher introduced a new prize, for the brightest golfing attire, which went to Manroland’s Andy Latham and you will see in his photograph why he was the deserving recipient. The challenge is on for 2015.
