20 MARCH 2018: The CEO Institute - NSW team played in the 2018 NSW Corporate Club Australia Golf Day on Tuesday 20th March at the NSW Golf Club.

Players tested their golfing skills right from the first hit off against the full force of a southerly, blowing at 50kms and gusting to 60kms - but it didn’t seem to break the competitive spirit with all players enjoying the challenge.

The CEO Institute - NSW team of Greg Kay and Ian Wheeler (with 36 points) finished in the Top 10 whilst Luke Simmons and Nic Mills were a couple of points behind. Well done all!
