Sixty of shippings finest golf talent were assembled at Waterford Valley Golf Course on Wednesday 3rd of April in 23-26 degree temperatures to contest the Phil Kelly OAM Perpetual Trophy.
The winning team was Leigh Taylors Westlink Container Park entry. The 2 longest drives sponsored by Total Maritime Logistics and Total Maritime Forwarding were won respectively by Ben Moke from DP World and Tom Hill from Port of Melbourne’s team. Tom additionally won closest to the pin sponsored by Pacific Asia Express providing evidence a lower centre of gravity coupled to a broad set of shoulders provides an unfair advantage in the game !
A big thankyou goes to our Gold Sponsor Svitzer, Key Silver Sponsor Port of Melbourne for the winner’s prize, DP World’s supply of Titleist golf balls and Neptune Pacific’s hydration from affiliate Fiji Water. Also our thanks to both Don Forsdyke and David Wittenburg for their supervision of the course with photographic duties added this year.
The date for next years challenge has been fixed for Wednesday 18th March 2020 (save the date). A special thanks must be extended to Waterford Valley Golf Club who were fully accommodating of our requirements and ensured a highly successful day.
