On Monday 21 September, managers from across the country gathered at Marriott Forest of Arden for Premium Credit and GCMA Golf Tournament Grand Final 2015.
This annual event has become a fixture of the GCMA golfing calendar, and whilst the weather provided some challenging playing conditions, Premium Credit still hosted – for the 20th year – a fantastic day for the lucky few who had qualified throughout the year at GCMA Regional Meetings.
Despite the persistent rain that could have closed many courses, the Arden course was presented in tremendous condition, and thanks to Marriott Forest of Arden for their hospitality.
With a variety of competitions running on the day, there was a chance for many of the entrants to get their hands on some of the generous prizes proved by Premium Credit.

Steve Taylor, Sales Director of Fairway Credit commented:
This was a great opportunity to welcome old and new friends from across the Regions – it’s a real pleasure for us to host this event for the 20th time, and we congratulate the winners. We look forward to welcoming the challengers for the 2016 event!
A great day on the course was rounded off with an impressive meal, and a hugely entertaining speech by former British Lions, England and Bath rugby legend Gareth Chilcott (pictured with Premium Credit’s Steve Taylor and GCMA CEO Bob Williams), who regaled the room with some wonderful stories from his past, alongside some analysis of the current Rugby World Cup.
Thanks to Premium Credit for their ongoing support of the GCMA and the Finals Day, and congratulations to all the winners!
