The second round of this year’s IAAF-BEN Company Team Golf Challenge was held this week at The Forest of Arden near Birmingham, with even more teams taking part than in 2016.
Joe Richardson, event organiser on behalf of the IAAF and ably supported by his wife Chris, was delighted with the way the day went and the sun shone long enough for the players to enjoy a fantastic day of golf.
The Aylesford course, renowned for its tough challenges, tested the mettle of all the partipants and congratulations go to the eventual winners, the team from Midwest Motor Factors. The runners up were the team from BTN Turbo.
The overall winners of the IAAF-BEN golf challenge for 2017 will be the team with the best score from the two events and they will be invited to the Awards Dinner in December to receive their prize.
The prizes were presented after the meal in the Club House. In addition to the winners and runners-up trophies, there were prizes for ‘Longest Drive’, which went to Gavin White from the Autotech Recruit team, and for the ‘Nearest the Pin’ which was won by Jack Hiscock from the Elcome team. Jim Sharma from the Midwest team achieved the best score of the day.
Congratulations to all the teams and a big thank you to all our supporters and sponsors of the event.
