Fraser retains Hilton-Baird trophy


Bibby’s Paul Fraser became the first player to retain the individual trophy at Hilton-Baird’s sixth Golf and Shooting Day, winning for the second successive year at Dorset’s Remedy Oak Golf Club.

Just like last year he scored 40 points, this time off a handicap of 12, closely beating Neil Dawson of Aldermore on a countback. This total contributed to him also winning the team prize along with Sandy Kinninmonth of RSM Restructuring Advisory and John Morton.

Mike Boswell of Lloyds Bank Commercial Finance, meanwhile, won the shooting prize after fending off stiff competition from Barclays’ two-time winner, Rob Elsey, who won in both 2013 and 2014. It turned out to be a good day for Lloyds Bank Commercial Finance, with Liz West winning the ladies title.

The management team at Hilton-Baird would like to thank everyone who came along to this memorable event. We hope you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again next year!
