BCC Summer Golf Day 2019

BCC Summer Golf Day 2019

The long awaited Bidborough summer golf day has been booked for Friday the 16th August at Sweetwoods Park Golf Club.

The cost will be just £55 per head.

The day includes coffee and Bacon baps, 18 holes of golf, a prize giving and two course meal. (Where costly missed putts will be described in detail)

We will also have a gambling hole and lovely people distributing drinks and challenges around the course.

There will be both individual and team prizes, as well as longest drive and closest to the pin, awarded after the duration of the meal.

The day will start promptly with Bacon Baps  served from 10:00am, with the first group teeing off at 11:10am.

This year we are also joining forces with the Taylor Made Dreams charity www.taylormadedreams.net, where part of the proceeds will go towards Taylor Made Dreams. Rodger has selected Taylor Made Dreams as his chosen charity after being selected as captain of the Golf Club itself. We at the cricket club are really excited to get behind Rodger and help out this truly amazing charity. Please check the link above to see the amazing work they put in.
