Faithful + Gould Flourish in the Autumn Sunshine
Business Fours visited the picturesque Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Club for the North East qualifier.
With heavy rain forecast the weather took a turn for the better as the players were blessed with sunshine and rainbows for the majority of the round. The teams made the most of the favourable conditions with some fantastic scoring – Gavin Scott high scoring with 46 points for the WestRock Company.
With three WestRock teams returning to the events supporting their chosen charity, Maggies Cancer Centre they attempted to go one better than their 2020 outing to win the national crown. The friendly rivalry amongst the team was evident on course with the individual awards changing hands before finally being decided. Michael Gibson managed to scoop the Longest Drive on 10th as well as holing the Longest Putt on 18. It was his WestRock colleague, Gordon Duffus, who also did the double hitting it nearest the pin on the 13th and 15th.
Faithful + Gould were playing for the If U Care You Share Foundation led by team captain Anthony Monaghan who had a brilliant individual round scoring 43 points. This score was bolstered by his teammates in the Faithful + Gould team as they were crowned winners of the North East event with a total of 137 points. The team secured £401 for their chosen charity as well as winning a pair of funky Royal and Awesome trousers for next years’ National Final.
They will be joined at the National Final by two of the WestRock teams captained by Gavin Scott and Steve Anderton, whose fine ball striking lead him to a +1 round – a cracking score!
Business Fours would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for coming along to our North East qualifier and playing at one of the most stunning courses we have been to this year as we look forward to next years’ events beginning.
