ITFC Golf Day at Wentworth raises much needed funds for the Academy...

Three teams took on the enjoyable but challenging West Course at world famous Wentworth on Tuesday 18th June. 

The exclusive opportunity to play on the Ernie Els-designed course was made possible by ITFC Academy sponsor and Wentworth member Dave Trumpess of Form Recognition Ltd, who worked alongside ITFC and Wentworth Golf Club to arrange an Academy fundraiser to remember.  Dave said of the event: "Thanks for a fantastic couple of days. It really went well and I must say the goodie bag was really impressive!"

Golfers enjoyed an 18 hole competition plus a post golf dinner and awards presentation in the Ryder and Curtis Cup rooms, and were able to soak up the elite atmosphere surrounded by trophies and items of memorabilia donated by golfing legends in the Wentworth Club.

Simon Milton described the Wentworth experience: "I will never forget the look on the golfers faces as they took to the famous first tee with their caddie and prepared to hit the first shot of the day – priceless!

"To have an Ipswich Town Golf Day at one of the top courses in the UK was a fantastic experience, everyone who took part will remember the day for a very long time and are looking forward to next year’s event."

Phil Davis of EUF Group Limited took home the Longest Drive prize, and shared Milts enthusiasm for the day: "Once again Rosie and Simon have put together an excellent event. I had a brilliant time on and off the course, won the longest drive and will be back next year to defend my title."

The overall winner on the day was Ian Brown with 32 points followed in second place by William Farley, who also won the Nearest the Pin competition.  Mel Pipe took third place and Dave Trumpess finished the course in fourth.

Rosie Richardson, Sales Manager at ITFC, was impressed with the way Wentworth Golf Club ran the event: "The entire Wentworth experience was exceptional, from the moment of arrival until the event concluded. The staff were outstanding and could not have been more accommodating. The Ryder and Curtis Cup rooms were exquisite, and we look forward to staging another event at Wentworth next year."
