Wonderful weather, fantastic day…

"The sun was warm and shining. September sky was blue. An eventful occasion, with fantastic views.  ABD golf!  Their corporate day!  One to remember, and to others relay…”

Bacon Butties and fresh coffee was a great start to the day for ABD guests - especially where golf was concerned!

This was followed by practise "putting" on the putting green, and checking out "technique” with golf pro Simon at the driving range just before teeing off in a four ball at appropriate timings around the famous Bowood Golf Course!

The day was a long and eventful one with four ball teams enjoying their rounds on the famous 18 hole golf course.

As the day started to end and evening began, all players were ready for a well earned pint!  At about 7.30pm a delicious 2 course supper was then served followed by coffee, chocs and prize giving.
