A Day of All Seasons At the Finol Golf Day 2017
Last week saw the return of the eagerly awaited 2017 Finol Golf Day that took place in the Palmerstown Stud Golf Course. To add to an already amazing occasion, Finol celebrated 40 years in business, a magnificent feat in the history of the company. This day also marked the launch of the Finol re-brand, with a new logo and website shown off to all participants on the day.
As with previous years, the demand for this day was as significant as ever. With the tee off taking place at 10 am, our first guests began to arrive 9 am sharp. The FInol team arrived in the early hours of the morning to ensure that registration was smooth and each player was in their designated buggy before tee off.What was noticeable from the start was as with recent years, the Palmerstown House course was immaculate, with a stunning setting provided to compliment this amazing course.
Once we had all the players on the course, it was clear that this Golf Day was going to be one to remember.To celebrate Finol’s 40th year anniversary, we ran a hole in one competition on the par 3, 179 yard 10th hole where the winner could win a new car. Although this hole had a difficult bunker on it, our players relished the chance to win this prize. After a couple of holes, it also became clear that this was going to be an event where the unpredictable Irish weather would make its presence felt! The Sunshine was met with strong winds and flash rain showers with this unpredictability continuing throughout the day.
As with previous Golf Days, there were a number of solo and team prizes available with Noel O’Brien from OB Motors our first place winner. To round off a brilliant day, FInol and our participants raised €1,000 for Barnardos Post Adoption Care.
