Tee time for business customers

Posted on 09 Apr 2007

More than 70 customers of JenningsFord exchanged their business suits for golfing attire when they were invited to take part in a recent hospitality event.

For the past 10 years, Jennings Ford’s South Tyneside Business Centre, which is responsible for providing Ford vehicles to businesses throughout the North East, has been hosting the golfing hospitality event at Whickham Golf Club.

Scooping first place was Alan Thompson from ACT Packaging in Durham, who received £100 worth of golfing vouchers. In second place was Chris McKenzie from James Burrell in Gateshead, who won £60 worth of vouchers and in third place was Keith Hetherington from Irton Vehicle Rental, based in Gosforth, who walked away with £40.

There were also prizes for the nearest to the pin, who was Ian Williamson from SIG Compiblock Ltd, based in Fencehouses and for the longest drive who was Neal Atkinson from A Plant Hire 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.”

The Jennings Ford South Tyneside Business Centre supplies vehicles to businesses from local one-man operations to multi-national firms.
