The Hampshire Refrigeration Society celebrated its 30th annual golf tournament at the prestigious Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Golf & Country Club.
During the day 120 players took part in the activities which began with a 9-hole Texas Scramble to loosen everyone up and get to know their playing partners. After a hearty breakfast brunch the teams then competed in an 18-hole Stableford competition where the 30 four-ball teams battled for the winners’ Claret Jug and other fantastic prizes.

The winning team was Kooltech, captained by Ian Waterfall, who returned to the clubhouse with 89 points. Second were Bob Scottow’s Seagulls with 87 and third John Hobley’s FSW team with 85. The competition was very closely fought and the first six teams all had totals in the 80s.
Another 18 prizes were awarded, including Nearest the Pins, Longest Drive, Best Handicap winners and runners-up, Best Gross and Nett Scores and the “I need to play more golf” prize. This was presented to Damian Wiszniewski of HRP, who was delighted to take the award in his first competitive tournament.
HRS Chairman John Emm said that the day was a huge success and paid tribute to the Old Thorns staff, the HRS organising committee and the 23 RAC companies who provided support and sponsorship.
The HRS is already organising its Xmas Fun Day Golf event for December and has started planning for next year’s tournament.
