On Monday May 16th, 40 hairdressers, salon owners and members of the hairdressing industry turned out at the Essendon Country Club for the seventh annual HABB Golf Classic.
The day was a huge success that benefited from fantastic weather conditions, a perfect course and a lovely group of people.
While the main aim of the day was to raise much-needed funds to help hairdressers in need, there was also pride at stake, with everyone hoping to be crowned the HABB Golf Classic champion.
And the winners were:
Champion: David Webb (Salon-eco.com) 44 pts
Runner Up: Mark Lemaitre (GHD Guest) 42 pts
3rd: Paul Jackson (Label.m defending champion 39 pts
Longest Drive: Chris Mach (Hammerville Media/Pro Hair)
Nearest the Pin: Andrew Harris (Boosh Hair – Swansea)
The day raised a very impressive £1463.51, including £145 that organizer Pete Statham raised through a guess the distance of my opening tee shot competition.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the golfers who turned out for what, everyone agreed, was a fantastic day,” says HABB President David Drew.
“I’d like to extend a personal thank you to Pete Statham of Balmain Hair, who has been running the event since its inauguration seven years ago and has raised a huge amount of money for HABB in the process.
“Pete has now decided to hand over the reins, but we cannot thank him enough for all of his hard work in making the Golf Classic such a success.”
