The Golf Classic steps up the pace!

The 2018 Golf Classic Grand Final draws closer as players from around the country meet for the penultimate round!

Now in its 26th year, The Golf Classic continues to offer golfers the chance to play exciting golf, make friends and forge business contacts as new entrants participate each year. This was certainly the case for David Datsun of Maynard Heady and partner Andy Jackson from AJ Scaffolding Ltd who played Mark Cakebread of Equinox flooring and Stephen Sealey, Floor Seal, in the fourth round.

I am very pleased to say that Andy and I managed to win a very tough match against two lovely guys! Both teams played well and the result was close. They scored one birdie par five and we achieved two birdies par three, and this won us the game. I’ve competed in the Golf Classic for many years now, and what I really enjoy most is meeting new people who also work in the construction industry.”

This year’s Grand Final is held at Slaley Hall in Northumberland. The resort’s Hunting Course is a European Tour venue and is known as the ‘Augusta of the North’. Situated in glorious countryside, Slaley Hall is a beautiful Edwardian mansion that offers the perfect setting for finalists to enjoy free golf, gala dinner, prize-giving and an overnight stay. Winners of the tournament take home an impressive trophy and Pro Shop vouchers. There are also prizes for the Runner-up, Nearest the Pin and the Longest Drive.

But there’s more than one way to win! Spot prizes are awarded in each round – these include branded golf balls, caps and umbrellas, a weekend break, and the chance to take part in the final for lucky losers! Plus, if you send us your pictures and stories from your games, we offer prizes for those we include in the press and online.

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 26 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.

We wish everyone in the fifth round the very best of luck!
