Blake Newport held our annual golf day on 22 July at Romanby Golf Club, Northallerton. Our guests ranged from contractors and sub-contractors to lawyers and Blake Newport staff.
Despite a cool wind the rain held off to ensure everyone had a dry afternoon’s golf and some good scores were achieved as a result.
The winning team with a score of 82 points consisted of David Moss – Hammonds, John May – Freeth Cartwright and Brian Craven – Romanby GC. The tradition, whereby the same team hasn’t won the Blake Newport trophy for two consecutive years, was maintained. On an individual basis the top three golfers all had 37 points; the winner was Richard Strike – Yorkshire Bank, second place was David Moss – Hammonds and third place was Gavin Richardson – Opus Electrical. The longest drive was won by David Moss and the nearest the pin by David Walker.
After a meal and drinks in the clubhouse followed by the prize giving the general consensus was that everybody would be back next year to try and get their name on the winners plaque.
