Golf Tournament

The annual Tobacco Trade Golf Association golf day was once again held at The Berkshire, my home golf course! Inside knowledge clearly did not help!

We entered a team to represent the Company – Past Masters Nigel Rich and Ian Panto, late stand-in The Mistress and myself. There were 17 teams – another good turnout, with BAT, JTI, PMI and several other companies participating.

All proceeds are for the Welfare Fund and the charity raffle drew much attention with a great range of prizes. There were also several generous sponsors.

It was a great day, perfect golfing weather, morning golf followed by the traditional Berkshire carvery and prize-giving.

At the halfway stage we made the fatal mistake of looking at the electronic leader board, seeing our team in the lead, and going downhill from there – apart from Ian Panto who dug deep, played consistently and was runner up in the individual over 60’s comp, receiving the Vets Falcon Pipe Cup for his efforts! Well done Ian.

Our thanks to Janet Poole from JTI for once again organising the day.

Next year save the date - 14 September 2023.
