Golf day hits the spot

23 July 2015

This year's Nottingham Forest corporate golf day proved a huge success at the Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club.

Twenty-three teams entered the competition, sponsored by Unibet, on Tuesday, battling it out in a stableford format in pursuit of the coveted claret jug.

The teams were greeted with a bacon cob and a Forest golf gift set supplied by adidas. They then took to the first hole before making their way around the pristine course.

The live scoreboard was waiting for them on their return when they received a delicious meal and were able to view their personalised photos.

Forest's commercial manager Simon Fotheringham said: "I would like to thank everyone for attending, Unibet for being our main sponsors and of course the Nottinghamshire who made us so welcome and supported us throughout the  planning and implementation of the event.

"It was a great day, a chance for all our corporate clients to assemble away from The City Ground, meet some of our former players and enjoy a round of golf together. Two members of the European Cup-winning team, Colin Barrett and Kenny Burns, attended alongside Nigel Jemson, who was the winning goalscorer in the 1990 League Cup final.

"Also present was Craig Armstrong from the club's last Premier League team and Julian Bennett from our League One promotion year."

The competition was won by Jemson's Alea Casinos team (87 points). They won a box at Windsor racecourse, a meal for eight at Chino Latino, a £100 bet with Unibet per player, Forest tankards and, of course, the claret jug.

In second place were sponsors Unibet (84 points on countback). They won an executive box for a game of their choice and a Forest tie and cufflink set.

The Nottingham Panthers took third place (84 points on countback) and were rewarded with Forest journals, eight 1865 Club hospitality tickets and a £50 bet with Unibet.

The Nottingham Label Company (84 points on countback) claimed fourth place to win Forest umbrellas, eight Caste Club hospitality tickets and a £25 bet with Unibet.

D-Air Services, whose team included former Forest player Armstrong, just missed out on the prizes by coming fifth.

Ralph Roberto and Peter Yorston won the nearest the pin and longest drive trophies and collected two Castle Club tickets, a Forest tankard and a trophy. 

Dec O'Reilly won the beat the pro competition to claim a four-ball at the Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club.
