The EAF Charity Golf Day 2013
The sun shone brightly at Donnington Valley Golf Course on September 5th, for the 2013 Estate Agency Foundation Golf Tournament. Eleven teams from all over the UK came to compete, and some came to defend their honour with two out of the top three 2012 winners returning.
As the temperatures rose on the course, the golfers were blinded not only by the sun, but by Simon Whale’s trousers. Clearly he thought they would give his team (joint Reapit and BriefYourMarket) an advantage – and he was right – they came in third with Gareth Samples getting the highest score of the day.
Andrews SW were there to defend their title and the scores were tight at the top. They came in head to head with Reeds Rains both with 87 points, but Reed Rains got 3 more points on the back 9 so were declared the winners by a whisker. Congratulations to Paul Ashton, Michael Jarrett, Matt Kenton and Richard Kawalec.
After a day in the sunshine, the golfers were ready for refreshments. Over supper the high spirits continued and there was some enthusiastic bidding for prizes donated by EAF supporters including Audio Agent, Zoopla, Local World, Spicer Heart and Audio Agent.
About £4,500 was raised in total on the day.
The EAF is looking to repeat the event next year and also hope to add a second golfing event in the north of the country. Hopefully people might event want to attend both.
