90 teams from all over the world competed in this year’s Father & Son tournament which teed off on the 10th August. Last year highlights of the tournament were broadcast to more than 88 countries.
Participants in this year’s tournament also competed in the “Silverballs” event which took place during the tournament. 100 silver golf balls were scattered throughout the course and the participant that gathered the most balls during the tournament took home a personalised 44pc Newbridge Silverware EPNS cutlery canteen featuring their family crest.
All participants received personalised Newbridge Silverware gifts, whilst the winner’s prizes were also commissioned by Newbridge Silverware.
