AAUK’s first golf event

The first annual Alliance Automotive UK Golf Event was a spectacle enjoyed by over 90 GroupAuto & UAN members, staff and supplier sponsors.

The event was held at the Belfry Hotel & Resort at the end of June with all delegates arriving at the premium location to check-in to the hotel and joining the evening for the England vs. Belgium World Cup game live on a huge outdoor screen.

The next morning players made the most of the driving range and hotel facilities before registering their teams and collecting a Denso sponsored golf pack ready for the competition on the Belfry PGA National Course. A fleet of FPS branded golf buggies looked extremely impressive as players made their way out to their designated starting hole.

Each 4-Ball team started at a different hole around the course at the same time. They used an electronic scoring device to record their individual scores and monitor how they were performing against other teams in a league table. The scores from the last three holes were hidden keeping players in suspense as to which team and individual player had won the competition.

After the golf competition on Friday evening everyone gathered for drinks and a BBQ set in the grounds of the Belfry. The awards were announced before a fun ‘Nearest the Pin’ challenge, where all delegates took it in turns to step up in front of all the evening delegates to attempt to hit a 150-yard shot over a water hazard, into the 10 hole of the Brabazon course.
