It was a hole-in-one for the New Zealand Association of Convenience Stores’ recent annual golf tournament.
The fundraising event is run to help fund a trip for two prospective Peter Jowett scholarship winners to the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Las Vegas show in October.
More than 60 players tee-ed off for the 18 and nine hole games, as well as a special ‘bubbles and bash’ event for 15 players who were given a run through from expert coaches before hitting balls off the second tier of the driving range in Takapuna, on Auckland’s North Shore.
Winners on the day included Ben Brook, Michael Brooks, Deva Dhar and Anil Nathoo for the 18 hold round. And Ritesh Dave, Craig Eagleton, Spencer Jenkins and Rhodes Pillman for the nine hole.
The longest drive winner went to Anil Nathoo and nearest the pin to Scott Bell.
Hole sponsors for the day included Remedy, Meadow Fresh, Frucor Suntory and Vype. Among the prize sponsors were Caltex, Coca-Cola Amatil, Drinks Collective, Signature Marketing NZ, NZ Vapor, Twin growing NZ brands, OnGas and Mars Wrigley Confectionery.
The event has been held for more than 20 years.
