Nottingham Forest’s annual Corporate Golf Day was played out in beautiful conditions at the immaculate Notts Golf Club yesterday.Reds players Chris Cohen, Danny Collins, Karl Darlow, Dorus de Vries, Eric Lichaj, Simon Gillett and Henri Lansbury joined 28 other teams for the stableford competition at Hollinwell.
Forest operations manager Joe Sharphouse said: “I would like to extend my thanks to all at Notts Golf Club for accommodating us for another successful Golf Day.
“The course was in pristine condition and I’m sure everyone who participated, no matter how well they played on the day, thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
“We have been really unlucky with the weather in the last few years so it was nice to see some sunshine.
“Many thanks to everyone who supported the day.”
Cohen and Collins stayed for the duration of the evening to present a number of team and individual awards, which were kindly supplied by Greene King, Alea Casino and The Construction index.
The competition was won by Mark Rye, Mark Walker and Neil Sanders of Elevate (89 points), who won the coveted trophy, an Executive Box for an upcoming match at The City Ground and a set of Forest umbrellas.
