In its 24th year, the Golf Classic continues to attract golfers from all corners of the country. This truly national golf competition has become the must-attend event for many professionals working in the UK construction industry. Many competitors return each year to play enjoyable golf and forge new contacts. Michael Cox is an Installation Manager at Everest and has been a finalist in the competition for the last two years along with his partner, Frank O’Donnell from RDS. Having won their game in the fourth round, Michael reveals why he enjoys the competition:
“We had a great game playing Gus and Andy. They were good company and I was impressed by Andy’s sporting gesture when he conceded a half point by revealing that his handicap had been cut from 5 to 4 after playing in a competition over the weekend. So a hole I thought I’d lost was actually only a half. I appreciated his honesty and this kind of sportsmanship is the reason why I took up golf and compete in The Golf Classic.”
Winners of the tournament take home an impressive trophy and Pro Shop vouchers each. But there are many more ways to win including prizes for the Runner-up team, Nearest the Pin and the Longest Drive.
The Golf Classic is proud to receive the continued support of Marley Plumbing & Drainage. This leading manufacturer and supplier of above and below ground drainage has sponsored the tournament since its inception 24 years ago. The tournament is also supported by a wide cross-section of the specialist construction press and media, further proof of its position as a flagship event in the industry’s calendar.
