‘Tee-time’ for business customers
Posted on 20 Oct 2008
More than 70 customers of Jennings Motor Group exchanged their business suits for golfing attire when they were invited to take part in a recent hospitality event.
For the past 11 years, Jennings’ South Tyneside Business Centre, which is responsible for providing Ford, Mazda and commercial vehicles to businesses throughout the North East, has been hosting the golfing hospitality event at Whickham Golf Club.
For the second consecutive year, Alan Thompson from ACT Packaging in Durham, scooped the top prize of £100 worth of golfing vouchers. In second place was Darren Tench from Tarmac, who won £60 worth of vouchers and in third place was Robert Houston from Rocket Medical in Washington, who walked away with £40.
There were also prizes for the nearest to the pin, which was Darren Tench from Tarmac, and for the longest drive which was won by Andrew Dagg from Modec Plumbing & Heating based in Sunderland.
No one was fortunate enough to score a hole-in-one, but after three hours of birdies, eagles and bogies, the guests relaxed with refreshments and a meal in the clubhouse.
Ray Cardwell, business centre manager said, “Golf Days are an ideal way to mix business with pleasure and thankfully, we were blessed with good weather, which was an added bonus on the day.”
“We look forward to organising a similar, but even bigger event next year.”
Jennings’ South Tyneside Business Centre supplies vehicles to businesses from local one-man operations to multi-national firms.
