“What a fantastic and relaxed days golf in great company…”
It’s August 2018 and I have just returned from my first Tees Fore Two mixed pairs event at the prestigious (not to mention exclusive) RAC Golf Club at Woodcote Park in London.
The Royal Automobile Club – About the Club….
The Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms with the primary purpose of promoting the motor car and its place in society. In 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the royal title, which they hold to this day.
Whilst many people know the Royal Automobile Club and its association to Motoring, this venue is now well established as one of the premier golf locations in the capital. However, the RAC still continue to develop and support motor sports through our promotion of motoring events and the Club’s representation on the Motor Sports Association (MSA), the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA) and the RAC Foundation.
RAC Golf Club at Woodcote Park is part of a huge estate which stretches across the Epsom Downs and is one of the foremost private members’ clubs in the world with a diverse membership, an extensive events programme, and two beautiful and unique clubhouses, alongside first-class accommodation, dining and sports facilities. In short, the only way you can play at a course like this is via an event company like Tees Fore Two!
The Royal Automobile Club – The courses….
Woodcote Park offers members and their guests the opportunity to play two exceptional downland golf courses, the Old Course and Coronation, in the beautiful surroundings of the Epsom Downs. Sweeping down towards Epsom racecourse, the tree-lined grounds make for a dramatic backdrop to a round of golf at any time of year and offer the perfect downland setting for any golf day.
The Royal Automobile Club – The Experience….
As you drive through the gates of this historic golf club you are immediately transported into another world. One of beauty and history. In addition, the environs of the club are immaculate in every respect; it has maintained its charm in 2018 without being stuffy or pretentious.
I was welcomed by our hosts Lee & Michelle Warden for registration, and was immediately introduced to all the other guests in The Derby Room with whom I would be sharing my day with, this was also where we enjoyed our bacon rolls, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
There were 16 of us on the day and I had the pleasure of meeting golfers from all over the UK and as far away as France and Russia. A truly international gathering.
After golf and a well deservered drink on the terrace, we made our way up to the Derby room where we were treated to a superbly prepared and presented three-course dinner with views over looking the 18th green of the Old Course.
The Royal Automobile Club – And finally….
“As a golf event organiser and formerly the Marketing Director of the London Golf Show and current Managing Director of the UK biggest online golf club TheSocialGolfer.com, I know how much work it goes into organising these style of events.”
“As such, I would like to congratulate Lee & Michelle on a very successful 2nd event and I wish them every success in building their portfolio of tournaments for 2019 and beyond. We will be supporting their company in any way we can and look forward to playing some fantastic golf courses with them. What a fantastic and relaxed days golf in great company, with a great setting and excellent food!”
