Birdies, eagles and albatrosses filled the air at the first ever Hunter Safety Annual Golf Championship at the Oaks Golf Club and Spa in Bubwith, near Selby.

Golfing guests joined the Hunter Safety team for a game of 18 holes, whilst enjoying refreshments along the way and an evening meal, followed by a presentation to close proceedings.        

Managing Director of Hunter Safety, Katie Hunter, said: "The event was a total success! I’ve been a keen golfer since I was young so to be able to share one of my passions with our clients and the Hunter team was a wonderful opportunity. I’m so proud that after just 5 years, Hunter Safety is able to hold events like this for our clients. I’m hoping this will now become an annual fixture in our client’s calendars and we’re already looking forward to the next one!”

The winner of the stableford competition was Steve Mills of Gamma Telecom, with Neil Scutt of Professional First Aid Service boasting the longest drive, and Ken Dobson securing the prize for nearest the pin.

Katie Hunter and fellow directors Bernie Lanaghan and Kirsty Carroll, who all took part in the competition themselves, presented each of the 30 players with a prize, many of which had been donated by generous suppliers and guests, which Katie expressed her gratitude for. The directors also thanked the Oaks for providing the perfect environment for the event and the exceptional upkeep of their grounds, which all added to a fantastic playing experience.

One guest said: “I had a great day and really enjoyed meeting contacts from other companies as we played. Everything was really well organised, with the Hunter team even providing gift boxes which were a lovely touch. The Oaks staff and facilities were top notch too.”
