Vital Energi in top spot at BESA Scotland golf day

Vital Energi took the team prize at the BESA Scotland golf day

More than 70 members and guests took part in the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) Scotland third annual golf day.

Competition was fierce but Vital Energi’s team of Stephen Traynor, Lee Duckworth and Stephen Martin came out on top in the team competition with Groupe Atlantic’s Charlie Newell, Billy Ritchie and Paul Welsh in second and Protech Heating’s David Goldie, Gary Steel and John Johnston taking third place.

The event at the Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa in Peebles, which was organised by the association’s head of devolved nations Iain McCaskey and member engagement manager Martina Stocker, also raised £362 for Maggie's cancer charity.

Individual winners were Lee Currie from Mitsubishi MEP who hit the longest drive, and the two balls that landed closest to the pin belonged to David Smith from ECG Facilities Services and Rob Vine of Applied Renewable Energy. Photos of all the action can be viewed here.

BESA immediate past president Rab Fletcher said the golf day was now firmly established as a key part of the association’s calendar as it gave members the chance to network and build relationships.

“Having the chance to meet and chat away from the day-to-day pressures of the business is more valuable than ever,” he said. “Talking to other BESA members proved to me once again how much we have in common and how much to gain from getting to know one another better. I’m already looking forward to next year.”

Plans are already well advanced for BESA Scotland Golf Day 2025 which will take place on Friday, April 25. You can book your team early here. Also, anyone interested in sponsoring should email: [email protected] or [email protected].
