Maritime golfers meet in Buxtehude

Almost 70 golf enthusiasts took part in the 7th Maritime Golf Tournament last Friday. The Fassmer shipyard, the gearbox manufacturer Reintjes, the training center MTC, and the electronics specialist Stucke Group have invited to the tournament at the Buxthude Golf Club in Lower Saxony.

The maritime golf event started with a joint breakfast in the morning. The cannon start at 11 a.m. heralded the start of the competition. A total of 16 flights of four took part in the tournament. Those who did not yet have a golf license or had not played for some time had the opportunity to take part in a taster course with a golf pro.

The first teams arrived at the clubhouse of the Buxtehude Golf Club after just under six hours. Unfortunately, none of the tournament participants won the “Hole-in-One” prize – a Land Rover Defender worth €100,000. Monika Hancock won the ladies’ gross prize. Markus Drude was the men’s gross winner. He took home the “MS Victory” challenge cup.

The first three places in “Class A net HCP up to 21.4” went to: Michael Eulert jun., Fridjof Grünhagen and Patrick Risse. In “Class B net HCP 21.5 to 27.4”, the top three places went to: Dennis Nejdrowski, Marika Kletzander and Martin Tewes. Fridtjof Thiede, Jens Kielmann and Colja Gerken were the top three in “Class C net HCP 27.5 and above”.

Hendrik Bruns hits the longest ball

Alexandra Wiegand achieved the “longest drive” for the ladies, while Hendrik Bruns hit the longest ball for the men – just like last year.

Silke Salomon’s shot on hole 3 was the closest to the flag at just under 2 meters. Lars Weigand was “Nearest to the pin” in the men’s competition. He missed the target and thus the Land Rover as the main prize by just 90 cm.

Taster golfers compete in putting and chipping

There was also a small competition for the taster golfers. The group of just under ten competed in putting and chipping. Malte Witkowski won the competition with 22 strokes over nine holes, followed by Ingo Helmboldt with 24 strokes and Christian Schmoll, who needed 25 strokes.

After the award ceremony, the participants rounded off the tournament with dinner together. As in the previous year, both the tournament and the networking evening were supported by co-sponsors in addition to the four main sponsors. This year, these were HANSA, Corvel, Hydac, HPS, Anders Automobile, Lethe, Wärtsilä and Golf House.
