September 18, 2012

The four-man team playing for leading broking firm ICAP will be heading off for a golf break to the Dominican Republic, courtesy of Barceló Hotels & Resorts, after winning the grand final of the 2012 Banks and Brokers Golf Championship which took place at the fabulous Stoke Park Club on Friday 14th September.

Runners-up on the day were Martyn Jones Financial Services with 79 Points and Tradition UK, the interdealer broking arm of Compagnie Financière Tradition finished third with 76 points. Matt Emery (COS Group Ltd) collected the nearest the pin prize and Richard Joyce (Reckitt Benckiser Group) hit the longest drive on the day.

The winning captain, Nick Stewart, was delighted with his team's victory on a windy day that made Stoke Park an even tougher proposition than normal. He said: "It was a fantastic venue for the culmination of an excellent competition. We have enjoyed ourselves right from the start in this event - which has been organised so professionally - and to win the grand final was the icing on the cake for us. We can't wait to head off to the Dominican Republic".
