The recent NMBS Golf Day brought together 120 people from across NMBS' membership and supplier base to network on a superb course.

On Wednesday 31 May, 2017, the leading buying group for independent builders', timber, plumbing and heating, and hardware merchants staged its annual Golf Day in partnership with the Building Materials Golf Society (BMGS).

In total, 120 people from across NMBS' membership and supplier base attended, all enjoying the great weather, impressive scenery, the superb golf course and great company.

The course chosen was the Dukes Course at the Woburn Golf Course, which was the location for the British Masters for 20 years, as well as hosting the Women's British Open Championship.

The 6,983-yard course provided excellent fairways and, for those who didn't stick to the fairway, the course was lined with pine, sliver birch and chestnut trees.

All players teed off at the same time by implementing a shotgun start, which ensured the day ran smoothly with all players getting back at a similar time.

There were various prizes to be won on the day, with the winners outlined below:

  • 1st Prize – Jonathan Collier (Monument Tools)
  • 2nd Prize – Chris Carter (Sydenhams)
  • 3rd Prize – Levi Desmond (BMGS)

  • Longest Drive – Jonathan Collier (Monument Tools Ltd)
  • Nearest Pin – Gary Scott (BMGS)

Team prize winners this year were:

  • Chris Carter (Sydenhams)
  • Andrews Aspinall (A R Aspinall & Sons)
  • Tony Curneen (Heating Plumbing Supplies)
  • Simon Raynor (Birtley Group)

Sam Hunt, events manager at NMBS, said: "We have received excellent feedback from attendees on how well the day was managed by NMBS and BMGS, along with comments on how good the venue was. We are delighted that once again we have put on another fantastic event for our members and suppliers to network."
