Warwickshire based resort, Ardencote launches the newly built 18 hole golf course with their first corporate golf day, the course completes the Ardencote portfolio in becoming the perfect destination for male and female golfers and Corporate Companies.
On Friday 13th May, Ardencote, hosted their first corporate golf day, with thanks to sponsors: Rybrook Warwick BMW, Greene King, Freax Adventures, Clements & Church & Charity Partner Northleigh House School alongside the launch of their newly built 18 hole golf course. The 5,045 yard, par 67 18 hole course has been designed to USGA standards and the manicured condition of the course enables a 4 Ball to play 18 holes in 3.5 hours.
Tim Crocker from National Farmers Union, who competed in the corporate golf day stated:
“The course at Ardencote is competitive but compact and swift to get around, it makes a perfect option for a relaxed game of golf after work or with friends. In relation to a corporate golf day I feel it works well, with the course being more compact than others and easy to navigate around, the whole day isn’t taken up by the golf and allows more time to spend meeting the other team members over drinks before and after the tournament”.
The winning team of the four ball competition was Calor Gas and Volvo Truck & Bus, competitions were also ran for second place, longest drive and nearest the pin. On the 12th hole all competitors had the opportunity to sink a hole in one in order to win a brand new BMW, donated from Rybrook Warwick BMW, additional competitions included a raffle in aid of Northleigh House School.
The corporate golf day packages start from only £32.50 a person and include tea/coffee and bacon sandwiches on arrival, 18 holes of golf, two course lunch in the Restaurant and the opportunity for the ‘nearest pin’ and ‘longest drive’ competition, bespoke packages can be created by the Events team and the course can accommodate up to 72 golfers on a shotgun start.
The new 18 hole golf course at Ardencote is open in perfect time for the summer season and aims to welcome both male and female golfers of all handicaps. The course is picturesque, easy to navigate round and a joy to play. Ardencote now offers the full package from spa treatments, hotel overnight stay packages, golf & spa packages, a divine leisure club, a variety of restaurants, Ardencote have created something for everybody. It really has become the destination for after work down-time and weekend activities.
Dale Huckerby, the Managing Director of Ardencote, said:
“When the piece of land next to Ardencote became available I saw it as a great opportunity to enhance the 9 hole golf course into an 18 hole golf course. I knew the opportunity would open the doors to new customers, new relationships and overall complete the offering Ardencote has for its customers. When designing the course I wanted to make sure that it could be completed in 3.5 hours or less, making it suitable for all handicaps, ages and genders, I believe we have achieved this”.
