The British weather was once again kind for Edgetech UK, a Quanex company’s fifth annual Dealership golf day at De Vere Staverton Park Golf Club.
Golfers prepared themselves for a day of friendly competition on the course by tucking into bacon sandwiches and coffee at the clubhouse. The 19 teams then tackled the championship standard 18 hole golf course set in the Northamptonshire countryside.
Speaking at the event, Adrian Barraclough, Renaissance Window Systems said: “The Edgetech golf day has become a feature of the calendar. It’s been great every year. All heads of the industry talking and doing business in a relaxed atmosphere and just enjoying it. That’s what makes the day so fantastic.”
At the evening meal, trophies were presented to the winning teams and individuals. Gareth Edwards from Synseal, Joe Hague from Promac, Jeremy Kemp from Padiham Glass and Andy Jones were presented the trophy for winning team.
Richard Oakes from Oakland Glass took home the individual first place trophy. Mark Stacey from Vision took second place and third place went to James Keeling-Heane from Senior Architectural Systems. Alan Moreland from GlassTeq won nearest the pin and Andy Burns from MB Frames picked up the trophy for the longest drive.
Every year Edgetech chooses a charity close to the industry to support at the golf day. This year it approached Nick Gibbons, Operations Director at Customade UK Ltd to ask if it could support The Spring Centre which Nick’s daughter accesses. The charity helps children with special needs throughout Gloucester.
29 companies donated prizes to the charity raffle and auction. Prizes included Euro 2016 tickets, a 50 inch Sony TV and Champagne tea at the Ritz. One of the biggest lots of the night was a Van Vault filled with tools worth £1,000 donated by Ace Fixings. Tina Moorhouse from Oakland Glass bid highest for this impressive prize.
“We had a record turnout of people joining us both in the day and evening,” says Andy Jones, Managing Director at Edgetech UK. “The generosity of our guests meant we raised £8,835 for The Spring Centre. It was a great day all round.”
