BCF Golf Day 2017

On Monday 3rd July the British Culinary Federation golf day took place at the prestigious Marriott Forest of Arden Golf and Country Club, Maxstoke, West Midlands. A field of 64 members and guests took on the challenge of the Arden Championship course. The course was in excellent condition, and the weather for the time of year remained a little cloudy with light winds and sunny intervals! However, the day remained dry and became warmer in the afternoon with temperatures reaching above 20 degrees.

The format of the day was registration from 8.30am with coffee/tea and bacon rolls on arrival and then a “shotgun” start at 10.00am from each of the 18 holes around the course.

This was followed by the much needed refreshments at the 19th hole, and time for players to reflect on the highs and lows of their game and ending the day with an enjoyable two course buffet lunch. Following lunch was the awarding of the prizes, conducted by this years event organisers, Chris Hudson, Graham Crump and Stuart McLeod.

The BCF would like to convey a sincere “thank you” to the following companies and establishments, for their generous contributions in supporting and making the day such a success: Major International, Zuidam UK Ltd, British Premium Meats, Cheal’s of Henley, Henley in Arden, The Cross, Kenilworth, No9 Church Street, Stratford upon Avon and The Marriott Forest of Arden who hosted the even.
