It was organised to help raise money for Gift of Hope Trust and their educational building projects in India. Please check the Gift of Hope link below to find out more.

Fund Raising Golf Day at Moor Park Rickmansworth

Nick Savage pulled together our Next Ventures team recruiting Richard Lacey, Stephen Martin and our secret weapon, ex professional golfer Ben Jones.

Concerns about the weather were unfounded with the golfing gods smiling on us and providing perfect golfing weather. It was evident from the first tee shots that we were in for a sporting treat and scoring would be low. By the half-way house, we could see those who were enjoying their game and those less so by the number of beverages ordered.

The nearest the pin competition was tricky, with only 4 out of 24 shots hitting the green, beers at half time may not have helped. The longest drive was a different matter with an array of gargantuan shots including by our very own Richard Lacey, however team NV were more focused on the main prize.

Ben 2nd Place Overall Prize

The contest for overall winner was tight till the last with 2 players scoring 24 and 26 on the back nine alone, scorching golf. Ultimately we narrowly missed the 1st place prize which went to Kush Thakrar but our own Ben Jones put in a scorching performance to collect the 2nd place prize.

The 3rd place prize was won by Sunil Patel, who also collected the Longest Drive title. Ian Oakes won the Nearest to the Pin prize. Congratulations to all the winners.
