Annual IQA-WA Branch Golf Day at Joondalup 20th November 2015

Let the Games Begin – Shotgun Start - 212 Players took to the field in high spirits and as per usual it was not all about the standard of play (for most) but about how much fun you have. This highlight of our IQA WA calendar once again hit the mark.

This year there was a lot going on around the course with the opportunity to win a car with a hole in one – nobody was even close!! There were also 3 longest drives with Joe Bradley on the Brooks Hire team having the longest of the day with a 300m stonker! Prizes were also awarded for Straightest Drives and Nearest the Pin.

The Winners – QMW (WA) - Represented by Trevor Bennett, Tony Summerfeldt, Perry Maxwell and Bevan Maxwell were obviously on fire on the day, with a gross score of 60 including 1 eagle, 12 birdies, 5 pars and not a bogey in sight. 

Our very own Golf Committee Chairman, Grant Menhennett and his team of Mark Breingan, Paul Borrello and Paul Haffe secured 2nd spot with a gross score of 63 whilst our WA Branch Chairman Steven Della Bona and his team of David Della Bona, Steven Sakich and Craig Rowe were hot on their heels in 3rd place with a gross score of 64.

The NAGA Award and now keenly sought after stainless steel spades went to 888 Crushing and Screening represented by Henry Neville, Melissa Zadra, Mark Tyler and Neil Dieroff with a very impressive gross score of 83. There is however a little tension in Melissa’s house after winning the spade as Melissa regards it as her trophy whilst her partner is itching to get out in the garden with it!

After 18 holes of golf, pre-dinner drinks and presentations, many of the dinner guests still had energy and kicked on till the end, enjoying catching up with industry friends and meeting new contacts.

Finally, thank you to our golf committee, Grant Menhennett and Stephen Elliott for their help behind the scenes and to Carlson Daniels for being our photographer for the day.

A complete directory of all the sponsors is on our website and we would like to thank each and every one of them for making our 2015 IQA WA Golf Day the success it was!
