Bibby HydroMap colleagues enjoy a summer evening challenge on the golf course.
Finally, on a barmy July evening saw the first annual Bibby HydroMap golf competition take place on the Wirral. In the months leading up to the event golfers paired up with non-golfers to take on the challenge with the former to play from the tee and the non-golfers to play all shots on the green.
With only hours counting down to tee time, there was only one question on everyone’s lips. Could the Goliath of golfer John Sadler and his young prodigy Emma Lamont be beaten? On the first tee it was clear that the pressure was perhaps too much for the experienced John Sadler to bear.
The competition started on positive note, displaying some very surprising talent with fantastic skills and composure displayed by Bibby HydroMap non-golfer colleagues. As the teams turned in after the final hole, there was a tense journey to the 19th hole at the nearby Traveler’s Rest, where everyone was sitting in anticipation as more and more score cards came through the door.
As the final teams came through the door the pressure was mounting on the experienced golfers to see how they performed. The final pair returned to applause as they posted a winning score well below the defeated veteran golfer John Sadler and his side-kick Emma Lamont. The winning pair of the Bibby HydroMap summer Golf tournament were Thomas Burden and Rachael Langan, very happy to be presented with their golden trophy.
A good day was had by all that participated, with grand plans for the next competition to determine the next two names to be engraved onto the challenge trophy.
