Bursars Golf Day is a Great Success

29th May 2019

S & C Slatter last week hosted their second Bursars Golf Day at the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Manchester.

Once again the Golf Day was organised to coincide with the start of the ISBA Annual Conference at which the company was exhibiting and presenting The Slatter Group .

Group Director Jason Douglass welcomed everyone as the traditional pre-play bacon rolls were consumed with great relish (they were exceptionally fine examples!) and our ‘Tournament Director’ Chris Marriott outlined the programme and logistics for the day.

In the evening, players and event support staff convened in the Club’s Manchester Suite for the competition prize giving, a three-course meal, the odd glass of wine and some very good conversation – most of which revolving around what a great day it had been. However, the chances of Liverpool winning the Champions League Final and the challenge facing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were debates also given a good airing!

The prize winners were:

Team 1st Place: Simon Piggott The Leys Cambridge, Tony Collinson Lady Barn House School, Paul McKeown Oakham School, David Thompson Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls.

Team 2nd Place: Richard Fletcher, Richard Thompson, Jon Lawrence Bridgewater School, Mark Mackenzie Crooks St. Helen’s School.

Team 3rd Place: Paula Vanninen Arnold House School, Gerard Garcia Beechwood Sacred Heart School, Gary Johnson, Tim Tracey.

Longest Drive: Men. Tony Collinson, Lady Barn House School.

Nearest the Pin: Matthew Swift, Stafford Grammar School.

The Team 1st Prize, for each player, was two tickets to the BMW PGA Golf Championship at Wentworth in September, courtesy of The Sports Consultancy.

And the name of Robert Lougee, recently Bursar at Salesian College, was drawn ‘out of the hat’ to win the Calloway Golf Bag kindly donated by Tim Tracey of Collinson Construction.

A special ‘thank you’ was of course given to Chris Marriott of The Sports Consultancy for all the great work he did both prior to the event and on the day – picking the teams, drafting the order of play and confirming the results.

Many of the guests in thanking The Slatter Group for organising the Golf Day, expressed the hope that it could be continued as an annual event which even more Bursars could have the opportunity to enjoy.
