Thursday 2nd August was our first ever Manak Solicitors Golf Day, held at Westerham Golf Club. On a beautiful sunny day with great course conditions, we had 30 clients and friends take part to win the “Claret Jug”!
To start off the day, we had an excellent full English breakfast, served by the kitchen staff at Westerham Golf Club. At breakfast, all participants were provided with customised Manak Titleist golf balls, and a handful of tees to use in their round. The groups went out on the incredible 18 hole course between 09:44 and 10:15, and manoeuvred their way around the tricky greens and fairways.
On a very warm day, the greens certainly played fast and firm, which made for some interesting putting! After the final groups finished on the 18th, everyone went into the clubhouse to cool down and get ready for the afternoon entertainment!
Attending our first Manak Golf Day was golf trick shot artist Kevin Carpenter. Kevin put on a phenomenal show, hitting 300 yard drives off a unicycle, crushing golf balls from a chest high tee, and many more amazing acts. His skills had to be seen to be believed, and he even allowed the spectators to have a go with a few of the tricks. A big thank you to Kevin for attending and putting on the show, as well as sticking around for the award ceremony at the end of the day.
After the excitement of Kevin’s display on the driving range, it was time for a late lunch. A special thanks to the staff at Westerham Golf Course who provided a wonderful three-course meal for all of our attendees. Next, it was time to announce the winner of the coveted “Claret Jug”. Congratulations to Dal who went home with the trophy, and we look forward to seeing him defend his title at our next golf day!
Another special guest of ours was Steph Harrison from Breast Cancer Care. Steph gave an incredibly moving speech about the impact our donations can have on those living with breast cancer. We are proud to say that we were able to collect £500 for the cause.
After the success of this event, we will definitely be planning bigger and better things for our next golf day. Thank you to everyone who attended and made this day very special. If you would like to read more about Kevin Carpenter and Breast Cancer Care, please use the links below.
