Porsche Centre Leicester recently held our regional qualifying round for the Porsche Golf Cup 2017. Hosted at Rothley Park Golf Club, we were joined by 50 Porsche golfers - who competed to qualify for a place at the national final.
Upon arrival, we were welcomed into the clubhouse by the smell of brewing coffee and sausage and bacon breakfast rolls. Fuelling up for the day ahead, the guests were given mini packages including sun-screen which ended up being a rather optimistic gift!
The lush and tranquil green, set in rural Leicestershire, offered unique challenges to golfers of all abilities. Playing as four-ball teams, they set of at their staggered tee times to complete the 18-hole course. As the teams made their way along the course, our golf team drove a sleek, black Cayenne Diesel down to the halfway point to meet the guests for scones and light refreshments as they flowed past. Although cloudy on the most part, the sun fought to make an appearance and ushered the players back towards the clubhouse for the main meal and prize giving ceremony.
There were a host of subsidiary prizes up for grabs which accompanied the main prizes of 1st and 2nd place on the leaderboard. One of our female customers, Sarah Chinnery, claimed 1st position after nudging ahead of runner up, Andrew Rastrick, who landed in 2nd place. Their victory at this level means they have qualified to play in the national final which is hosted at the spectacular Lough Erne golf course in Northern Ireland.
Porsche Centre Leicester want to wish both Sarah and Andrew the best of luck in the challenge ahead! Join us in rooting for a Leicestershire victory.
