It’s In The Bag…



EFI Logistics take top spot on Rook’s Golf Day 

The famous West Course at The Royal Ashdown Golf Club in Forest Row was the venue for last Friday’s superb Lewes FC Golf Day.

Over 50 golfers took part in the 4-ball team event, sponsored by Golf Escapes and Callaway, and after a welcome from the Club officials and a hearty breakfast, the weather was set fair for some excellent scoring.

The team prize was won by EFI Logistics 2, based in Hailsham with a score of 98 points, with runners up Terry Parris Recruitment, featuring Rook’s legend Terry Parris, getting close with a score of 91.

The golfer with the best individual score, a superb 41 points, went to Andy Tippett, on the EFI Logistics 1 team, with team mate Barry Browning collecting the ‘nearest the pin’ prize.

A whopping tee shot that bounced off another ball and then careered into the car park gave Scott Ashton from Parker Building Supplies the trophy for longest drive of the day, and it was two from the Parker team that shared the putting competition, held on the Old Course putting green.

After lunch an excellent raffle and auction raised more funds for our community good causes, and Rooks Commercial Manager Kevin Miller was delighted that the event went so smoothly.

“It’s been a fantastic day, and I’d like to thank all of the teams that took part for making it happen. I’d also like to thank Adam, Tim, Matt and Keith and all the team at Royal Ashdown for making us feel so welcome. The course played brilliantly, and I have already had some excellent feedback from the teams involved. I look forward to organising next years’ event.”

The next event here at Lewes FC is the 2014/15 Gala Dinner, held at Pelham House on Friday, May 8. A superb night hosted by football broadcaster Tom Watt features great food, some incredible money-can’t-buy auctions & raffles, and music ’til late. A great night to invite clients family & friends, and tickets are just £48 inc. vat, or £450 for a table for 10 guests.

There are also hospitality packages available for the 2014/15 Sussex Senior Cup Final at the AMEX on Saturday, May 16. It’s Lewes v Whitehawk in the Final, and hospitality packages are available in the BUPA Lounge for just £38.50 per person, with tables for 10 guests available for £385.
