After the success of last year’s inaugural tournament, Spitfire Marketing recently ran its second golf day for clients. The now ritual event was held at Hamptworth Golf and Country Club, close to the Hampshire/Wiltshire border.
The Club, which is also a Spitfire client, had its corporate identity and website designed and developed by the agency during 2015 and is now a thriving venue for both sports and social events.
After days of dry and bright conditions, the weather wasn’t so kind and overcast skies and then light rain eventually had players reaching for their umbrellas and donning wet weather gear towards the end of their rounds. However, this didn’t dampen enthusiasm as they tackled the picturesque course, which features amongst its many challenges, ‘The Beast’, an infamous 666 yard par 6 hole.
This hole gave the day its ‘Beauty and The Beast’ theme as players were introduced to Spitfire’s own beauty, model Natalie Varney, who will be featured on the agency’s new website which will be launched shortly.
The best round of the day came from big hitting Ryan Ellis of Bluedrop Marketing who managed the triple by also picking up the prizes for the Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin competitions. Second place went to Paul Richardson of BoxTop Technologies and in third place Doug Kelly, Managing Director of Bluedrop Services.
Host for the day, Spitfire’s Managing Director, Andy Rose said, “It was a great day to relax in beautiful surroundings, and great company, even if the weather did become a bit of a beast!”
