We held our second Matt Le Tissier Golf Day last Friday, June 28th, raising funds for both Ernie's Angels and Guernsey FC. The weather was idyllic for the occasion, as indeed it was last year for the inaugural event, with the picturesque The Golf Club at St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort course once more bathed in intense summer sunshine.
Massive thanks are due to Infrasoft Technologies, who once again were our main event sponsor, and thanks also to the The Golf Club at St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort for providing the perfect venue for this special occasion.
A total of eighteen teams of four took part in the Golf Day 2019, with Specsavers ending the day as overall winners. In second place were the TDS Southern Ltd foursome headed by Robin Bishop, our UK Physiotherapy assistant & kit man, while third place honours went to Greg Forino Flooring, featuring ex-Spurs player David Bentley. Congratulations to these teams, and indeed to everyone who took part – you created a great atmosphere and raised much-needed funds for Ernie’s Angels and GFC.
Plaudits are also due to Kevin Le Tissier, Matt’s brother, for coming nearest to the pin on the 4th hole, with Charlton Gauvain – normally millimetre-perfect when aiming a different kind of ball – missing out to Kevin by a mere inch! Fellow GFC striker Will Fazakerley came closest to the pin on the 6th hole, and the main man Matt Le Tissier himself was nearest on the 8th.
Ernie's Angels also held a Closest to the Pin competition on the driving range, raising nearly £800. We’re very grateful to Nineteen Bar and Grill, the Golf Club bar and restaurant, for helping boost the funds raised by donating a beer to anyone who pledged £10 to Ernie's Angels during the competition.
The day was rounded off by a fabulous awards dinner at Hand Picked Hotels' St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort, with top-notch entertainment provided by singer Toby Falla and magician Louis Kennedy. Thanks Louis, Toby and St. Pierre Park Hotel for ensuring the evening went with a swing and was on a par with the thoroughly enjoyable day’s golfing.
We are so grateful to everyone who took part, and of course especially to Infrasoft Tech whose generous support made this Golf Day possible. All in all, the attendees agreed that the event suited them to a tee!
