BESA Scotland’s latest annual Golf Day in Peebles was hailed a huge success with more than 60 members taking part.
Competition was fierce but Fife-based ventilation contractors Pro-Duct Group came out on top winning the Top Team award followed closely by Glasgow firms Protech Heating Ltd in second place and Kooltech third.
The event, held at the luxurious Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa, was hosted by BESA President Rab Fletcher from Fife Council, and organised by the Association’s Head of Devolved Nations Iain McCaskey who also provided prizes for the longest drive, and the two balls that landed closest to the pin.
Pro-Duct Group director Craig Condie congratulated the BESA team on “another fantastic day” adding that the company was “over the moon” about the result.
“Hopefully there were not too many sore heads the next day,” said Condie. “The trophy will take pride of place in our offices until next year.”
Rab Fletcher thanked all the members for taking part on what was the build up to a holiday weekend. “Some great golf was played…and some not so great!” the President added. “Well done to all the winners and we look forward to doing it all again next year.”
New BESA Scotland chair Steven Rawding of Richard Irvin FM said the event was a key part of the Association’s calendar as it gave members the chance to get together in a relaxed setting.
“Everyone is really busy right now and economic conditions are tough, so it is even more important that we take the chance to meet and talk with the pressure off – until you slice your first shot into the trees, of course!” he said.
“Roll on next year.”
McCaskey said plans were already well advanced for next year’s event, which is expected to take place on April 26th. Anyone interested in sponsoring or taking part should email him at: iain.mccaskey@theBESA.com
