The Panel team:
 
Alan Bluett, Partner – Banking & Treasury, The Panel (Captain)

14 teams were involved in the golf outing this year with a shotgun start at 1.30.
The weather was superb (many thanks to Michele in the IACT for organising that!) and the quality of the golf was of a high standard.

A team from Ulster Bank won the team event with a blistering score of 98, The Panel’s team scoring being somewhat less than that.
The longest drive was measured at over 300 yards while nearest the pin was won with a Hole in One!
