England vs Scotland!
On Friday 13th December, Crews Hill Golf Club became the venue for the inaugural Angus Dundee Golf Match pitting players selected from our English office against a visiting team from our Scottish locations. Yes, England vs Scotland! Our team members met in a good competitive spirit as the early morning fog lifted to give way to a beautifully mild late autumn day in Middlesex.
The England team consisted of our youngest member and organiser of the event Jordan Kendall, Regional Director Duncan Baldwin, Financial Controller Dilip Mapara and Chief Accountant Tim Craik. The Scotland team was composed of our Managing Director Aaron Hillman, Master Distiller Robert Fleming, General Operations Manager Martin Meldrum and Operations Manager Steven McNeil They set off in two teams of four playing a ‘4 ball better ball stableford’.
With some sociable banter and friendly rivalry, the teams played marvellously well in an evenly contested match which concluded appropriately in a draw!
Post-match, each team member was given a medal, and a trophy will now have the winners of the 2013 event engraved as England and Scotland with a shared ownership in this inaugural year. The trophy will spend its first six months with the Scottish team!
Next year, the trophy will once again be competed for – I heard that a new venue may be found for the next match : “La Manga, anyone?!”
