The Guernsey FC season ended two months ago now and we are very much enjoying the weekends to ourselves in the knowledge that it will become super busy again not before too long when it all kicks off again in early August. In the Club’s off season the majority of players are taking a well earned break, but for a few of the Club’s volunteers it hasn’t been as quiet. They have been busy putting the finishing touches to the inaugural Matt Le Tissier Golf Day that was held at St Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort last Friday.
We were contacted a few weeks back as the Club wanted a video to encourage members of the public to take the last few places on the day. We worked with eight of the Club’s players and a Golf Professional from The Golf Club at St. Pierre Park to practice a few shots on the driving range before heading out onto the course.
We produced a social media short which ran on both Facebook & Twitter a few weeks ahead of the event. We have also been working on a short 10 minute video production which showcased the efforts of the players on the range and a on a few of the easier holes on the course. That video premiered on the evening of the fundraising do, and whilst we couldn’t be there to witness the audience’s reaction we heard that it went down a storm.
We managed to find time to attend on the day to capture some of the teams taking on the 9 hole course and heard from the legend himself, Matt le Tissier, who brought a few well known golfers with him to take part in the event. We have banked that footage ready for next year’s event but some of it may surface in the coming days, so keep an eye out on the Club’s social media channels. It is only a few weeks now till the fixtures for the forthcoming season are released. #COYGL
