The Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants held its annual golf day at Tandridge Golf Club on Wednesday 12th April. The day was organised by Liveryman Edwin Ray, with Master Gary Hopkins, Managing Director of Turnbull & Co builders’ merchant, presenting the prizes.

Tandridge Golf Club, based in Surrey, is rated among the Top 100 Golf Courses in England. It is set among mature woodlands with spectacular views of the Surrey North Downs and the countryside of Kent and Sussex. Players included Past Masters Martin Earle and Robert Cope, Court Assistant Brian Blanchard (Building & Sanitary Director of Aliaxis UK), Liverymen Mike Tattam (UK Sales Manager of Jablite Ltd), Andrew Cope (Managing Director of Chandlers Building Supplies), Roger Howard, Roger Thomas, Alun Roberts, John Griffiths, David Pearce and Bob Budd, and guests. The round was enjoyed with exceptionally sunny and warm weather.

Past Master Martin Earle, with Past Master Stuart Somerville as caddy, took the top prize with 48 points, a gross 76. The runner up was Liveryman David Pearce with 31 points. The Guest Prize went to Graham Addiscott on 33 points.

Our thanks goes to Liveryman and active golfer Mike Tattam, who despite having his golf clubs stolen from the boot of his car that very morning, still played and took the great photographs.
