Forest of Arden Golf Club
THURSDAY 12th AUGUST 2010
For the first time the Lead Contractors Association and the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors are joining forces in organising a Golf Day for their Members and Associates, guests and friends.
What promises to be a very Special Event will be held at the superb Championship Forest of Arden golf course at Meriden, Warwickshire, where exceptionally discounted golf and accommodation packages have been negotiated in order to provide the very best value for money for those taking part.
The event will be in the form of a friendly (?) match between the two organisations, represented by as many teams of two players as we can muster. The teams will be captained by Chris Salmon (LCA) and Nigel Miles (FTMRC) and pairs from each organisation will be matched against each other in a combined stableford matchplay event (best combined score wins the hole).
There will be individual and team prizes announced during a private presentation dinner at the Forest of Arden Hotel and we hope the day will provide lots of sponsorship opportunities for those who perhaps may not be able to provide players, but nevertheless wish to support the day – or even do both, which would be even better!
Although there has never been a combined event before, previous Golf Days organised by the LCA have been designed to raise money for Charity and although this is not the primary objective of this first combined event (in order to keep costs to a minimum), any surplus funds which have accumulated by the end of the event will be donated to a charity of the winning captain’s choice.
For those unfamiliar with the venue, the Arden Course provides a great challenge having hosted a succession of prestigious European Tour events, including the English Open and the British Masters.
The package we have arranged is as follows at a TOTAL COST OF JUST £90 + VAT per person
• Coffee & bacon rolls
• Individual putting competition
• Strokesaver booklet
• Driving range token
• Longest drive competition
• Nearest pin competition
• 18 holes on the Championship Arden Course
• 3 Course private dinner
• Individual and team prizes
B&B accommodation at the Forest of Arden has been arranged at £120 + VAT for a single room or £130 + VAT for a twin bedded room (please note this is per room, not per person)
If you would like to join us, put in a team (or two), or simply support the day, just tell us by contacting the LCA secretariat who are organising the event on behalf of both LCA and FTMRC on
