IBA Golf Day June 2013

16th July 2013

The IBA Golf Day, held on 12 June at the De Vere Village Hotel, Heron's Reach in Blackpool was a huge success with over 50 Suppliers and Members participating. As ever, the venue was superb and the weather started off with rain but brightened up later for a great day's play. This was followed by an excellent awards dinner with presentations for Teams, single players including nearest the pin, longest drive and 9-hole Texas Scramble. The highest score on the day was achieved by a delighted IBA Member, Steve Ralston of Ralco who won the Mark Huddlestone Memorial Trophy. Congratulations to all our winners and a very big thank you to all participating Suppliers and the following sponsors: C.K. Tools, ESP and Timeguard.
