The Society of The Golden Keys Charity Golf Day Tees Off in Style

The annual Charity Golf Day was held at The Grove Hotel on Tuesday 29th August.

Team Where Magazine: Ronnie McDowell, Rob Way, Conor McDowell, and Tom Wardley. Alongside Nicky Woodford from Long Drive and President Toru Machida.

As well as raising as many funds as possible in aid of Hospitality Action, the annual golf day also allowed the guests to spend some quality time with their fellow Concierge and business affiliates, networking and having fun.

Who came out top of the tees?

Although networking was the order of the day, the guests never lost sight of the fact this was a hotly-contested competition. In a tight field, Team WHERE Magazine edged the crowd to win.
