For the past couple of years Dymond Engineering has sponsored High Bullen Golf Club Scratch Competition, and we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 competition.
Terry Hart, pictured left below, was the overall winner and Nigel Cook, pictured below with Dymond’s Mike Garner, was winner of the ‘18 and over Handicap Scratch Competition’.
For those of us who don’t know about golf, the basis of a scratch competition is that handicaps are disregarded and it’s the players’ gross score which counts. The aim is to find the best player on the day.
To widen the appeal a separate competition is also run for those with handicaps of 18 and over, although those players can enter the main competition instead and pit their skills against the best in the club.
Terry gave a very convincing performance in very adverse conditions – high wind and rain – typical English summer (until now!). Terry was awarded the gold trophy, which was made by Dymond Engineering.
Last year Terry’s handicap was 14 and is now down to 11. He was a worthy winner with a consistent performance last year and this at the club, having recently achieved a gross of 3 under par with a handicap of 11 which is exceptional at the club. Unfortunately he was not able to enter the competition this year.
Nigel was also a consistent performer over 2017 and was surprised when he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat on a difficult playing day.
Dymond Engineering also sponsored the 2018 competition which took place in July…..more on that later.
It’s an incredibly busy summer period here at Dymond Engineering with all hands to the pump. However Sue managed to make time to attend this month’s North Devon Manufacturer’s Association’s (NDMA) committee meeting held at the new Barnstaple Work Hub.
Prior to the NDMA meeting we were treated to a tour of the impressive Barnstaple Work Hub, along with a presentation by the business which hosts the hub – the Design Shop. Design Shop moved into spacious new premises last year and set up the Work Hub along side its core sign and corporate furniture business.
It was then onto the NDMA committee meeting and on the agenda was the new ‘Careers in North Devon Manufacturing’ brochure which should be available in November. Among other pertinent topics we also discussed work with the Heart of the South West LEP and the South West Peninsula Manufacturers Network, and the opening of the North Devon Engineering and Innovation Centre at Petroc.
