It’s been a while since EuroLine hosted a golf tournament — so it was with a lot of excitement that we were looking forward to the EuroLine 2015 “Invitational Tournament.” A good game of golf is always so much fun and what’s better than whacking a little ball while enjoying the company of co-workers out on the links? A little exercise, a LOT of laughter, and a great deal of camaraderie, while strolling about in the glorious sunshine.
An eager EuroLine group and some of our suppliers met at the Delta Golf Club on Friday, August 21st for an engaging 18 holes. Some of us are avid golfers (experts — I would say), and some of us are absolute beginners, but we all arrived at the club ready for an enjoyable experience. We grabbed some clubs, carts, balls and tees and tromped out to the practice area. We stretched our bodies, swung our clubs, and tried to sink some balls, all while joking and chatting with each other.
The sun was shining brightly, and there was no hint of rain. Luckily, Nolan remembered to bring sunscreen and he generously shared it with everyone who held out their hands. Thank you, Nolan — what would we have done without you?
We gathered into our foursomes, and posed for group pictures, then headed out to the first tee-off! As the teams started out, we all applauded and encouraged every “golfer” as they took their opening swing. High fives and loud cheers all around!
As we made our way through the course, our teams had good shots, bad shots and hilarious shots — there were birdies, eagles and bogey putts! We were goofy, funny and determined. As a group, we only lost a few balls, there were just a couple of shouts of “Fore!” and no one got marooned in a sand trap. The novice golfers had support, encouragement and mini-lessons, while the experts had the chance to share their wisdom, and play a relaxing round of their favourite game! Everyone had a terrific time, as evidenced by the smiles, happy faces, and boisterous antics.
By the time we all reached the 18th hole, we were tired, hungry and feeling GREAT, ready to share a meal and our best golf stories of the day!
Esther won the prizes for the ladies events: KP and Longest Drive, Norm won the men’s Longest Drive and Dale took the men’s KP. Peter won first prize for the Best Photo at the REHAU-sponsored hole (see his winning pose on the left). His prize? — a Samsung tablet! There were many other great prizes — gift cards, ball caps, portable device chargers and more. Everyone took home a prize — we were all winners!
A BIG Thank You goes out to our suppliers, who donated the prizes:
Cascade Aqua-Tech, Fastenal, Flexiforce, Mirage Retractable Screen Systems, Rehau, and Roto Frank. Your generosity made the day extra special!
It was a lively, pleasant and entertaining day — the game was so much fun, the grounds were beautiful and the barbeque at the end was delicious! We can’t wait for the next tournament! Until then, I’m going to work on my swing!
