HRS hits the pin at 36th Annual Golf Tournament


03 August 2023

The 36th annual Hampshire Refrigeration Society Golf Tournament took place at the renowned Old Thorns course in Liphook, Hampshire, on July 27.  One hundred and four players competed across 26 teams for the coveted team and individual 18-hole competition prizes.


The event was an outstanding success, with the golfing ability ranging from spectacular to questionable on a day when the weather surprised everyone and remained agreeable after heavy rains. In the morning, a ‘friendly’ 9-hole Texas scramble team event saw two competitions on the front and back nine to accommodate many teams, with Cool Designs Team 1 and J&E Hall victorious.


The afternoon 18-hole competition saw players up their game after a hearty brunch taking on some breathtaking holes on a course that was playing well, all considering.  The overall winners emerged as Icool Refrigeration Team 1 for the best 18-hole stableford team and Paul Icough of Icool Refrigeration completing a brace to take the individual mantle.


A fantastic 3-course meal preluded a presentation evening hosted by the amazing Jayne and John Emm, which saw Steve Taliadoros of Luve selected for the HRS Achievement Award and 28 competition prizes collected, which the event's sponsors generously donated.


It is a pleasure to be media partners of such a long-standing industry event, and congratulations to all the winners and runners-up.
