…because I won one this afternoon.
It was a bit of a game, to get us increasing the number of times we promote our Customer Satisfaction Surveys. Make eight promotions and you got a go on a Pitch’n’Putt hole on the carpet. One practice shot then five real shots, with the highest number of hole-in-ones winning a £5 voucher for our Cafeteria.
One of the guys on our opposite team set the pace with 2 out of 5. One from the group opposite equaled that record.
Meanwhile, I was plugging away and finally scored my eighth promotion at 3.40pm. I was disgusted to learn that the ‘competition’ had ended at 3.00pm, but they gave me my go, just for the hell of it. I took my practice shot and didn’t even reach the ‘green’.
I then holed five in a row.
They accepted my score. I won a Free Lunch.
Those years of charging round the Crazy Golf course in Keswick, reducing the ‘record’ to an eighteen hole 34 have not left me yet…
