A Swinging Time had by all!
Spirits were high, divots flew and balls soared (some even in the intended direction) at the 11th Annual Alliance Golf Day.
There were snipes and gobblers, whiffs and bogies, wormburners, fliers and chilli-dips, along with the odd albatross and occasional friendly mulligan. But it wasn’t all about the golf, those not taking part in the tournament made full use of the extensive facilities at Foxhills Resort in Surrey.
Then it was off to the nineteen hole to toast the champions, enjoy a delicious five-course dinner and be entertained by the humorous insights and anecdotes of sporting legends Matt Dawson and Ray Wilkins. It was then time to turn to the ruthless business of the auctions and boost much needed funds to enable the Alliance to continue in its work promoting intellectual property rights and the need for effective enforcement.
