Deceuninck UK & VBH (GB) host seventh annual Golf Day

Deceuninck UK and VBH (GB) hosted their seventh annual Golf Day in July, returning to the stunning Bowood Golf Resort in Wiltshire.

After missing out in 2020 due to Covid, this year’s Golf Day was an extra special occasion, marking the first major industry social and networking event in more than 12 months. 

Bathed in glorious sunshine, beautiful Bowood set the scene for a highly enjoyable – and closely contested – day of golf around the PGA Official Golf Course for the South West, with just five points separating the top three teams at close of play.

First place honours went to Bristol Windows who finished with a total of 85 points, just three ahead of second placed team, Window Warehouse and M&S Windows, on 82. Coming home in third place was Garrard Windows with a final tally of 80 points. 

The prize for the ‘Nearest the Pin’ competition was claimed by Matt Kelly of Bill Butters Windows, with the trophy for Longest Drive going to Window Warehouse team member, Dan Reader.

The day concluded with a dinner, prize giving and evening drinks at the Bowood.

Chris Jones, Deceuninck Sales Director, commented: “It was absolutely fantastic to be able to get together with friends, colleagues and our co-hosts VBH for this year’s annual golf day. 

“After being forced to cancel last year, and following an exceptionally challenging period for us all, it was a real treat to be able to get together with friends and colleagues to enjoy the outstanding Bowood course once again.”   

Simon Monks, Managing Director, VBH, added: “Everyone has been under a huge amount of pressure since the start of the first lockdown in March last year, so we were delighted to be able to finally co-host the seventh annual Golf Day alongside Deceuninck. 

“The Bowood Resort is a world class venue and the perfect setting for what is now an established and highly anticipated event on the industry calendar.”
