Business customer steers ball to the hole - in - 1!

Posted on 02 Aug 2011

It was celebrations all round at Jennings Motor Group’s recent annual golfing event, when one lucky customer achieved a hole-in-one!

Noel Warke, area sales manager at catering and kitchen equipment firm, John Dodds, based on the Team Valley Trading Estate in Gateshead, exchanged his business suit for golfing attire and teed off at Wearside Golf Club at Cox Green with more than 50 other business customers from Jennings’ South Tyneside Business Centre.

Member of Garesfield Golf Club in Chopwell, Newcastle, Noel Warke, said; “I have been playing golf for 20 years, but this is the first time I have scored a hole-in-1. My playing partners were just as jubilant as I was as it’s the first time they have witnessed a hole-in-1.”

This is the fourteenth consecutive year the Jennings’ Business Centre, which is responsible for providing Ford, Mazda and Commercial vehicles to businesses throughout the North East, has organised the hospitality event for its business clients.

Ray Cardwell, business centre manager, said; “This is the first time we have celebrated a client who has achieved a hole-in-one, which is fantastic. On behalf of Jennings, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Warke. ”

Ray added; “The golfing event is the ideal way to mix business with pleasure and it also gives us the opportunity to thank existing customers for their business over the years, in addition to welcoming new businesses to the company.”

Celebrations continued from the golf course into the Clubhouse where a two-course meal was on the agenda, prior to the prize presentations for the day’s activities.

The first prize of £100 worth of vouchers was awarded to Dave Holehouse from Spectrum Decorators. In second place was Ron Lloyd from Lloyds Signwriting who received £60 worth of vouchers and in third place was Garry Lambton from Isoler, who walked away with £40 worth of vouchers.

In addition, Ian Williamson from SIG Combibloc, Kevin Rutherford from Houseproud Joinery and Leon Gill from Clifford Chapman, won prizes for ‘nearest to the pin’ and ‘longest drive’ respectively.
