ISSA golf day swings back into Lincolnshire

Members of the UK cleaning industry converged on Lincolnshire’s Toft Golf Club in early July for a day of bright sunshine and relaxed (but competitive) golf as the ISSA hosted the second golf day for its members.

After the success of last year’s inaugural event, everyone was looking forward to an enjoyable 36 holes of golf. Of the 23-man field, it was Roger Smith who triumphed in the main competition of the day - the individual Stableford - with a score of 38 points. Stuart Berry of Peter Grant Papers took second place while Brakes’ non-food division manager, David Ratcliffe, came in third place.

First place in the morning 9-hole Texas Scramble competition was shared by four players: Tony Markham, Roger Smith, Bob Kenyon and ISSA’s own Keith Baker, all with a score of 26.4. Sharp-shooter of the day was Alan Nottley of Numatic, who won the ‘nearest the pin’ competition, but Tiger Woods should look out for Jimmy Finlay who struck the day’s longest drive.

Keith Baker, ISSA director of EMA services, said: “It was a fantastic day for everyone. The weather was superb and we had an atmosphere to match. It was a relaxed, sociable day for all involved and we are certainly looking forward to next year’s event.”
