Long Drives and not a Forklift in sight...

For the first time this year - Maxim GB dealers and Neckar Forklift customers teamed up for two wonderful golf events at Waterton Park and our usual venue - Windlesham Golf Club.

The team event at Waterton attracted 32 players who enjoyed ideal conditions in beautiful sunshine. Competing for team prizes, and, individual honours for the longest drive and nearest the pin - Neckar customer Peter Jones of Magtec came away with the opportunity to play the Windlesham event winner at the "Wembley Stadium" of Golf - The famous West course at Wentworth.

64 players joined in the second event at Windlesham on 12th July - again in some wonderful sunshine. Maxim Dealer Paul Deller - of PD Materials Handling, emerged victorious to go forward and play Peter at Wentworth.

Forget the BMW PGA. The event that got really got Wentworth buzzing came to the tee on the 28th August, on yet another fine day. Whilst going Head to Head - Paul and Peter were joined by Maxim MD Ian Capes and sponsor Andrew Woodward of Investec Financial Services.

At the half way stage (also known as a sausage sandwich stop) Peter Jones had taken an early lead which he maintained - all the way to the 17th hole...but standing on the PAR 5 18th - both players were all square with everything to play for.

Considering the tension - Peter and Paul both hit great tee shots, and an excellent second shot. It came down to the wire - as whoever got closest to the pin with their next shot stood a very good chance of taking the win.

With the 3rd shot over the famous stream on the West Course - anything could happen. Paul stepped up and safely placed his ball at the front of the green. In true "Tin Cup" style - Peter decided to take the flag on, and an awesome shot finished a just a few feet short and tumbled into the water.

Beautifully placed - Paul held his nerve, and took the win with 2 putts for a par finish.

Thanks to all our customers, dealers and sponsors for making all our events so memorable!
