Our Sales Director Paul, was invited to play Golf in a team of four for Flowserve Pumps in the
BPMA Golf Day (British Pump Manufacturers Association) at Goodwood Golf and Country Club.
The Annual Golf day involves many UK pump manufacturers and is a great opportunity to meet with UK pump suppliers to discuss new products, innovation and opportunities in the pump market.
All attendees meet in the morning for coffee and bacon rolls prior to heading out onto the golf course for a Texas Scramble 18 hole competition, this means all golfers have to tee off and then each team select the best drive to play from, the catch being all players in each team have to play at least 3 drives throughout the 18 hole competition.
As with previous years at Goodwood, the weather was definitely not in our favour with the heavens opening on the 1st hole and not stopping until we had putted out on the 16th Green.
Bearing the conditions in mind, our team made up of Pete from the Ministry of Defence, Gary, the Sales Manager for Flowserve, Andy, the General Manager of Flowserve Newark and Paul, the Sales director for Mawdsleys Pump Services, the round was completed 2 under par and when you add our combined team handicap, we actually finished 9 under par nett. A brilliant result considering the conditions.
After warming up and meeting everyone back at the hotel for dinner, drinks and the presentation evening, the team waited with baited breath for the results!
As the team names were called out in reverse order and the longer the evening went without mention of the Flowserve team, the greater the excitement and anticipation became until, finally The Flowserve team name was called out as the
2015 BPMA Golf Day Champions, winning by a narrow 1 shot margin!
A fantastic result for the team, Flowserve Pumps and our Sales Director Paul,
And A Huge thank you to Gary and Flowserve for inviting Paul to play and enjoy the win!
