Golf day success despite clash with The Open Championship

Metro’s golf day planners’ unintentional clash with the Open championship at St Andrews, proved not to be a critical issue, with competitors excited to be playing a course that has hosted numerous international tournaments, including the British Masters and the English Open.

The inaugural (as in first ever) Metro golf day, saw 20 competitors – a blend of customers, partners and colleagues – gather at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club, in the heart of the country, to play the renowned championship Arden course.

With perfect weather and temperatures reaching 74° players had the chance to reinforce working relationships, on a more personal level and for Metro, an opportunity to thank customers for their valued support.

All in all, the golf day has proven to be a fantastic way to mix business with pleasure and given the overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers, the event will be repeated in 2023, possibly with some interim events!

Unlike the competition being contested at the same time, on the Old Course, birdies and pars were somewhat elusive on the Arden Course, although, after a competitive round the eventual winner did card a very creditable 35 points, which is just one stroke over a nett par round.

Congratulations to our worthy champion Mr Peter Kang and to the 19 competitors who qualified for the 2nd Metro Golf Day in 2023.

More to follow…and if you are partial to a round or two of golf, please make contact with Tom Fernihough, who will share any opportunities that we have for further events, that we will be organising, to alleviate the day-to-day stress and strains of the logistics environment.
