Thursday 27th September 2018 saw the annual Grosvenor Charity Golf day take place and once again it was held at the picturesque Wrag Barn in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. The weather was at it’s beautiful autumnal best and the competitive nature between staff, fund managers and clients was at an all-time high. The standard of golf seems to get stronger year on year and so the handicap committee will need to be paying special attention for next year’s competition.
The team spirit for all competing was incredibly high, many compared it to that of the European side that recently won the Ryder Cup. Big congratulations go to the winning team this year consisting of Phil King, Kevin Yound, D Wymess and Marcus Cook. Whilst the standard of golf was on par with last year, if not slightly better, there were still plenty of contributions for the lost ball competition.
For the second year running the event was all in aid of Penny Brohn UK who support people with cancer, before, during and after treatment. Ben Olson, Managing Director of Grosvenor was delighted to again be taking part in the event, “our golf day is always eagerly anticipated, and we are grateful to everybody who takes the time to attend, provide sponsorship and supports the day. This year the event has raised £6,455 and it gives us immense pleasure to know it is going to such a worthy charity as Penny Brohn.”
