Well, what a day that was! I have been overwhelmed with all the compliments about the event, many saying it had been the ‘best ever! The weather was perfect for golf, the Niklaus Course was in perfect condition and all the SPRA golfers had a wonderful day in the Cheshire countryside. Carden Park is a great venue, and their support and organisation enhanced the whole experience for all of our guests. It was a day of friendly but enthusiastic competition and congratulations to the Danosa team took the top slot this year. Congratulations must also go to all the other category winners – well done!:

While the golfers were battling it out on the fairway, I joined Jim Hooker, Mark Thornton and five other guests to take part in archery and falconry during the afternoon courtesy of our event organisers Crescendo and Fruitful events. Jim Hooker was delighted to win the archery with a whopping 59 out of 60.
When everyone was off the golf course, we were entertained by the fabulous David Edwards , who after dinner, presented a wonderfully funny video of our golfers as they made their way around the course. There was also a special prize for Richard McCarthy from IKO who received a bottle of Carden Park sparkling wine for attending all of the SPRA Golf days over the years…what dedication! More details can be found on the SPRA website, and members will be able to download photographs from the day.
Sponsorship has played a huge role this year in allowing SPRA to deliver two high quality events, and special thanks must go to SFS Intec and OMG for sponsoring the golf awards. However, I would like to thank our headline sponsors Bauder, and all other sponsors who have supported SPRA in 2017 –
