Newfield Annual Golf Day raises over £4000 for chosen charity of the year.
Newfield employees and guests enjoyed a pre-game breakfast bacon bap and a tea or coffee before teeing off for the annual golf day at Castletown Golf Links.
Guests from businesses including PGI, Conister Bank, Microgaming, Domicilium, SMP Partners, Standard Bank, Manx Telecom, Artisan, Edgewater and Pay Genie Consulting were among those braving the wind and rain to support the event, which was in aid of Newfield’s 2017 Charity of the Year, Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation.
Newfield’s social team handed out bags of snacks, golf balls, tees and rules, then the players set off for a Texas Scramble format. As they played, the social team prepared beers and soft drinks to be delivered to guests on the course by golf buggies. As the beer ran dry the golfers got very wet, but all were welcomed back into the club house with a homemade hot chicken curry to warm them up!
This year Newfield offered incentives to increase competition, including a Mini if you could achieve a hole in one at the 16th hole and two more cars up for grabs for a weekend at the 13th and 8th holes for those closest to the pin. The Mini, sadly, had to be returned to its owner but the weekend cars went to Paul Cillia and Jaco Jansen.
First prizes, donated by Newfield, were Sonos Speakers, which went to Newfield director Denis Mikan and fellow employees Angus Clarke and Harry Davies. Second prize, of branded golf polo shirts from Castletown Pro Shop, went to Microgaming’s David Reynolds, John Quinn, Andy Hollis and Craig Vermeulen, while third prize of Newfield-branded caps and golf balls, went to Edgewater and Artisan players Matt Evans, John Shields, Jaco Jansen and Chris Lee.
Newfield wishes to thank the companies which donated prizes: PGI, Conister, Castletown Golf Club, Your Personal Wine Service, Edgewater, Claremont Hotel, Microgaming, Standard Bank, Robinsons and Domicillium.
