Wellingborough Golf Couse played host yet again this year to the 12th Glazerite Trophy on 6th and 7th July. The PGA Trophy pro-am golf tournament has become a highlight in an increasingly busy glazing industry golf calendar, noted for the high quality of the golf played.
With temperatures reaching the high twenties over the event the 37 teams taking part did very well in the extreme heat. Glazerite customers travelled far and wide to attend including Doug Skinner (Kennaugh and Skinner) who made his way from the Isle of Man.
The winning Team was formed by Dartford-based Leslie Easton and Annis Building Contractors from Wellingborough who with professional Ben Hall, won the main Pro-Am event. Kyson Lloyd was the tournament winner, posting an eight-under-par score of 136 for the two rounds.
The event didn’t end there though as it carried on into the night with entertainment, food and drinks for the golfers and their guests and Glazerite employees. Through voluntary donations from team members a raffle throughout the day and auction in the evening the whole event generated a staggering £4235 for Glazerites nominated charity Cancer Research UK.
Glazerite Chairman and fanatical golfer John Hewitt believes the event was the strongest yet: “The quality of golf gets better each year and is reflected in some excellent scores. Amongst a great day for us all, the generosity of many was outstanding. Over £4000 donated to Cancer Research UK is a fantastic amount and a cause that is close to many of our hearts.“
