Elite Marble & Granite’s first Charity Golf Tournament a big hit

Elite Marble & Granite had a large turnout for their first-ever charity golf tournament.

Seventy golfers from the local community turned out on Friday 14 July at the Britannia golf course to participate in The Elite Marble & Granite Charity Golf Tournament. The event was in aid of The National Council of Voluntary Organisations [NCVO].

The Two Man Scramble competition proved to be the most enjoyable for all the participants.

In total the event raised CI$10,000 for NCVO. CI$4,000 was raised from the event itself with Elite adding a further CI$6,000.

‘The team at Elite have always been keen contributors to worthy local causes. However, this is the first time that we as a firm have actually organised an event of our own. It is certainly something that we shall continue to do in years to come.

‘Organizations such as NCVO are essential to the morale and welfare of the community and need all the financial support they can get. We are delighted that the money will be donated to the Jack & Jill Nursery. The generosity of the sponsors, prize donors and golfers was overwhelming. Without their invaluable contributions, the event would not have been such a success,’ said Elite Installation Manager Mike Laurenson.

The prize-giving ceremony, held at The Triple Crown Pub, was not a serious affair at all. Once the free drinks started flowing and the presentation, hosted by Elite’s Lee Webb, got into full swing, the fun really started. Apart from genuine prizes, there were several tongue-in-cheek prizes presented which had the crowd cheering and howling with laughter. This was especially the case for the unfortunate recipient of the Worst Golfer in the Tournament award. But it was all taken in good spirit and seen as typical of the good humour that prevailed throughout the day.

Unfortunately no one was lucky enough to drive away with the Hole-in-One star prize of a white BMW Z4 sports car. The car was up for grabs on the 10th hole.
