Read about our event at Rochford Hundred Golf Club...Southend United hosted their Official Golf Day at Rochford Hundred Golf Club on Wednesday 21 September.
Amid the sunny conditions, the participants enjoyed a day away from the stresses and strains with the First Team squad and management, which was also a fantastic networking opportunity for many South Essex’s local businesses.
The package included a four ball with option to have a Blues First Team player in their ranks, a bacon sandwich and refreshments on arrival before participating in an 18- hole Texas Scramble.
Thanks to club sponsors Fairfield BMW, there was a chance for the players to win a Southend United Mini if they could get a hole-in-one on the 18th hole.
Although no one could quite manage to claim the prize, it was a day fully enjoyed by all with drink refreshments served on the course.
Once the round of 18 was completed, the agenda didn’t stop there as there was a two course evening meal and presentations to be enjoyed.
The winners of the awards were as follows:
Best Team: MSPFX + Ryan Leonard & Ben Coker (132)
Best Putter: Stephen McLaughlin
Nearest the Pin: Dean Salmon, D&M Estates Ltd.
Longest Drive: Dean Salmon, D&M Estates Ltd.
Best Individual: Mark Hart, Rendezvous Casino
