Orchard Toys hosts successful Golf Day

Published on: 13th May 2016

The Capability Brown Parkland Course at Burghley House in Stamford was host to 48 friends from across the toy trade.

Orchard-Toys-480Attendees enjoyed a fun day of networking and golfing, followed by an evening reception and prize-giving.

The expectation was that the round would be played in wet weather gear, but fortunately dry conditions prevailed for 15 of the 18 holes.

Gap Day’s host Simon Prest, sales director at Orchard Toys, was pleased to be able to hand the winner’s trophy to Alan Dadswell of Toys ‘n’ Tuck. Alan played in the very first event held by the Golf Academy for Pleasure 15 years ago, when there were just eight players. Mike Barrett came second, Craig Carter came third and defending champion Bill Mobbs put up a good challenge to come in fourth. Winning lady was Amanda Gummer.
