CIH retailers took part in the Beko Classic Pro-Am Golf tournament in October to compete and play at the Gloria Serenity Golf Resort, near Antalya, Turkey. The stunning resort with luxury hotel, designed by renowned architect Michel Gayon, offers a unique atmosphere with its rolling greens and the blue Mediterranean on the horizon made for the perfect venue.
Hosted by Steve Naylor, Channel Manager Independents, Beko, the CIH team included Andrew Thomas from AF Thomas & Sons Ltd., Newport; Neil Lunt from Lunt’s Domestic Appliances in Liverpool and Martyn Acland from Acland’s Radio & Television Ltd., Bridgewater, Somerset. The three day event involved a different professional hosting the individual amateur teams each day. The pros included John Daly, renowned for his driving distance off the tee earning him the nickname of ‘Long John’.
Steve Naylor, Channel Manager commented: “The Beko Classic Pro Am Golf Tournament is in its twentieth year and set in an exquisite Turkish resort. It was a magnificent trip, which had mixed fortunes for most of us. However, the CIH team was exceptional and was leading the tournament after the first day; sixteen under par on day two; and twelve under par on the final day. They eventually came fourth and lifted a prize trophy. It was a tremendous result and a well-deserved trophy.”
