Visual Connections Golf Day brings industry together

Golfers of the print industry recently took to the greens at the Pennant Hills Golf Club in Sydney for the Visual Connections Golf Day, providing an opportunity for suppliers and clients to enjoy a day of networking.

More than 100 people took part in 18 holes of golf, teeing off at 11.30am for an Ambrose-style competition.

Host and platinum sponsor Visual Connections was joined in supporting the day by gold sponsors Currie Group and Expo Net, and hole sponsors Bőttcher Australia, Get Rigged, Gel Events, Sign-A-Rama, Sydney Showgrounds and Labels Plus Magazine. A drinks cart sponsored by Ecolease ferried refreshments to players out on the course.

Competition was fierce and it was a three-person team from Pozitive – Eddy Alilovic, Michael Farnham and Anthony Bonnici – who emerged victorious. Coming in a close second was Scott Le Lievre, David Vider, Phil Marshall and Mitch Mulligan playing for Bőttcher Australia.

Following a full day out on the course, the golfers gathered at the 19th hole for drinks where they were joined by several more industry identities for an American BBQ dinner. Entertainment was provided by author and raconteur, Tom Ware, and presentations were made to the winning teams, and for those who achieved other notable feats, including longest drive, straightest drive, nearest the post and the ‘Survival Ball’, which was taken out by Ricoh.

Visual Connections business development manager Sarah Moore said, “The annual Golf Day is a fantastic opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues, make new connections and enjoy a great day of fun while building the relationships which we know are so important to successfully doing business.

“We were overwhelmed by the response to the event this year, with 108 people taking to the course and another 14 joining us for dinner. It’s great to see our industry getting back to our regular program of events and we look forward to continuing those opportunities as we look towards Print2Parliament on 23 November and Visual Impact Sydney in May 2023.”
