The Bahamas Financial Services Board (BFSB) hosted its annual **Golf Tournament** recently at the Ocean Club, Paradise Island. Planned to coincide with BFSB’s 2008 Bahamas Briefing, the event attracted teams from the accounting, banking and trust, insurance and legal sectors. Corporate Sponsors of the Tournament were **Union Bancaire Privee** and **Ansbacher (Bahamas) Limited**. A student team from St. John’s College was sponsored by the Fidelity Group.
BFSB’s CEO & Executive Director Wendy Warren says the annual event provides a great opportunity for members to socialize – and network – with colleagues and friends while enjoying spectacular golfing. The Ocean Club’s championship Tom Weiskopf 18-hole, par 72 golf course, featuring breathtaking signature holes and seaside greens and tees stretched over 7,100 yards of beautiful coastline, offered the perfect setting for this year’s tournament.
The overall winners of the 2-Man Scramble play were: David Slatter & Bob Hudson (KPMG Team), First Place; Wayde Christie & Drexel Smith (Scotiabank Team), Second Place; and Anthony Minna & Andres Echeverri (UBS Team), Third Place. Chris Gouthro, Andres Echeverri, Eugenie Adderley, and Anthony Minna also won prizes for Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive (Men), Longest Drive (Ladies), and Longest Putt, respectively.
BFSB also extends its appreciation to the other individuals and establishments that co-sponsored the event through the donation of prizes. These included: The Cove, Atlantis; Ocean Club; Bahamas Ferries; British Colonial Hilton Hotel; Mr. & Mrs. William Whitaker; August Moon Cafe/Alexandra Catering Company; and Poop Deck at Sandyport.
