Each year, the Captain of Beeston Fields organises a golf trip to another course. This year, Peter Benson, planned a visit to Rockliffe Hall in Darlington, County Durham. The weather held up and stunning blue skies complimented the image of the clubhouse and course.
The results from each game were as follows:
Team competition on Sunday - Winners: Mat Pacel, Ant Fleming, Jake Benson, Ian Roberts. Runners up: Dan Duthie, Angus West, Matt Rippin, Dan Rippin.
Individual competition on Monday - 1st Alex Sowter (39 points), 2nd Ant Fleming (38), Jake Benson (37), 4th Tim McAlinden, (37), 5th Mark Philpott (36), 6th Pete Benson (36).
The Captain, Peter Benson commented; "The weather was very kind to us, the Sunday gave us glorious warm sunshine. Rockliffe Hall provided a fabulous combination of good golf, a great Hotel and excellent service. The Away Day's always give members a great opportunity to mix with others they perhaps wouldn't normally do, and the random draw for the Monday competition, carried out on Sunday evening at Dinner, also helped to mix people up."
Sixty people were involved in the trip and there has been such a fantastic response with how pleased they were with Rockliffe Hall's service and the overall venue:
"Wow! Probably the best away day I have been on, certainly the best hotel I have stayed in, the service courteous and standards high."
"Really enjoyed it! Venue was fantastic. It "made" my Birthday!"
"A great course, fine hotel, lovely weather!"
"Great visit to Rockliffe Hall - hotel, golf course, company, organisation, all excellent."
