Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School (BVGS) Corporate Partnership hosted its fourth annual Golf Day, inviting guests to enjoy a day of friendly competition and networking.

Hosted at Walmley Golf Club, this year’s event followed a Shotgun Start format, with Stableford Betterball scoring used to determine the winning teams of four.

X2 Furniture renewed their support as event sponsors, delivering an impactful speech during the 12pm briefing, where Development Director Brian Davies introduced the competition and schedule.

Teeing off at 1pm, teams started at different holes and rotated through the course, taking part in a range of smaller challenges, where guests could win prizes for ‘beating the pro’ or achieving the longest drive of the day.

After finishing the round of golf, guests were treated to a three-course meal and refreshments inside the clubhouse, before the partner-sponsored raffle was drawn and over £2,700 was raised during the auction.

A number of the schools Corporate Partners once again showed their support for the school by sponsoring individual holes and donating impressive prizes for the fundraising auction, including ground passes for the Wimbledon Championships and corporate tickets to a Liverpool home game.

John Shakespeare at Walmley Golf Club, commented: “The Bishop Vesey’s Golf Day is always a key event in our calendar, as it allows us to showcase the fantastic facilities we have to offer, while networking with other local businesses.

“Although we have hosted various Partnership events in the past, the Golf Day is a great opportunity for guests to play on our famous 18-hole parkland course, which makes for a challenging yet enjoyable experience. 

“More than just a Golf Club, we are a social community that aims to bring local businesses together, encouraging engagement within a relaxed environment.

“We’re looking forward to hosting next year’s event, which will mark the fifth annual Golf Day for the Corporate Partnership.”

Brian Davies Development Director at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School said: “The annual Golf Day gives partners and local businesses the opportunity to network, while enjoying the fantastic facilities Walmley Golf Club has to offer.   

“With this being our fourth annual golf event, we were able to combine the successful elements of previous years with some exciting new features, delivering another action-packed experience for guests.

“Once again, we’d like to thank Walmley Golf Club for hosting the event, as well as our partners and guests for supporting the Golf Day, offering sponsorships and donations where possible.

“We’re looking forward to inviting guests to the fifth annual Golf Day next year on Friday 5th June 2020 – a fantastic milestone for Bishop Vesey’s and the Corporate Partnership Programme.”

The Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce were present with a team in conjunction with BT, whilst the winners of the competition were NA Consulting with recently elected Sutton Chamber committee member Naeem Arif part of their team.
