Benfield Motor Group pulled out all the stops for the Annual Benfield Charity Golf Day in aid of The Prince's Trust, which was again hosted at Close House Golf Club in Newcastle. Registration was buzzing as you an see with excitement & goodies! Mulligan balloons, cheat packs, Glenmuir polo shirts, water & few sweeties to help the golfers power through those 18 holes....

A Glenmuir shirt for all 200 players!
The sun was shining bright for tee off as the golfers made their way out for the shot gun start, 100 players on The Colt Course & 100 on The Filly. On course challenges ahead included Beat The Lady Pro from European Golf Challenge, trick shot challenges from Kevin Carpenter & Geoff Swain as well as a 20K car up for grabs. Armed with all those goodies & their mulligan balloons the golfers were set to go!

After taking their shot at a hole in one to WIN an Audi A1 courtesy of Benfield Motors, players were given the opportunity to surf up to the green on the GolfBoard! Everyone who surfed the earth took to it like a duck to water...some closer to the water than others, as they sped off along the side of the lake towards the green! All good fun & we think there may be a few GolfBoards going on the forthcoming Golfers Christmas Wish Lists as a result! Along with an Audi A1 of course, as sadly no winner this time round.

It was a star studded affair at Close House with a host of North East icons taking part in the day to support The Prince's Trust. These included football legend Alan Shearer, Steve Harper, John Beresford & Rob Lee. The event was followed by a fantastic Gala Dinner at The Hilton in Gateshead at which Benfield hoped to top last years funds raised of over £50,000. The money goes a long way to support the work of The Prince's Trust helping disadvantaged teenagers in the North East of England.

All in all, a very successful day which Golf Day Gloss were proud to be involved with. We would like to thank Benfield Motors & also Close House who were the perfect hosting club.
