Event Review: NBCC/KLM Royal Dutch Airlines 54th UK Golf event
The 54th edition of the Annual NBCC/KLM UK Golf day showed to be popular again this year and attracted no less than 65 NBCC members and their guests as well as key clients from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and other NBCC (Premier) members. The event, as in previous years held at the magnificent Wentworth Golf Club on 15 September 2015, consisted of a breakfast/networking meeting, a round of 18 holes on the East Course (famous for hosting the first Rider Cup Course in 1926), a refreshing Heineken Beer at the Half Way house and a buffet dinner, followed by a prizegiving ceremony. 8 guests participated in the Clinic under the guidance of club professional Kristian Baker.
All the guests received a goody bag with useful golf items sponsored by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Rabobank and, upon departure, a going-away present sponsored by Rituals Cosmetics and De Lage Landen.
