OIAM Charity Summer Am/Am Golf Tournament ‘Back In Full Swing’ Thanks To Support From Bradford Businesses!
Temperatures soared as a record number of guests gathered to support our 2022 Annual One In A Million Summer Am/Am Charity Golf Tournament, at Shipley Golf Club on Friday 12th August 2022. Proudly sponsored by Naylor Wintersgill Chartered Accountants.
We are grateful to all 39 teams of four, from the local business community and members of Shipley Golf Club, who played 18 holes of competitive stableford golf in very hot and sunny conditions on an immaculately prepared golf course.
All guests were entertained by Ady Wheatcroft of ACE Golf Challenge, sponsored by Lily (https://www.lilycomms.co.uk), who provided some fabulous entertainment on the 3rd tee with his trickshot challenge, won by Philip Venter from Naylor Wintersgill Chartered Accountants.
Much needed refreshments and ‘Yorkshire tapas’ were served at the 10th Green Halfway House by our OIAM team, generously sponsored by Crucial Engineering.
The next challenge was provided at our Charity Hole on the 11th par 3 where guests were encouraged by OIAM trustees Simeon Briggs and Mick Spratt to make a donation to the charity and challenged golfers to hit the green on one shot, to win a sleeve of balls, kindly donated by HHJ Rachim Singh. Congratulations to team Quantuma for all four team members hitting the green, very impressive!!
A great day was rounded off with our teams enjoying a much deserved meal and a drink following their round, with prize giving, sponsored by Quantuma followed by an entertaining Q&A with Bradford City Legend Dean Windass.
