Tiger Joe Goddard takes the prize at annual BGN golf fest

BGN’s annual business networking golf day broke with tradition in several ways this year. Firstly, the weather conditions were benign as we enjoy an Indian summer. The event attracted 32 players - members of BGN and their guests.

Secondly, the ground staff at Waterlooville Golf Club, down in sunny Hampshire, won’t have to replace a layer of turf and topsoil because Michel “The Mole” Focard was absent. However, his spirit lived on as one of the gold buggies accompanying the match came under bombardment from Simon “Daisycutter” Butler.

Business resumed the following Wednesday with our usual business networking breakfast at Langrish House, We heard how BGN veteran surveyor Paul Gatrill had the privilege of providing his services, and damp meter, to Blankety Blank star Lorraine Chase, checking for dampness.

20 referrals were passed between members that day, a much greater haul since our new chairman, Joe Smith Entertainments took office than we ever saw under his predecessor’ grim regime!
