Yesterday the On Course Foundation team uprooted from the Richmond office and made the trip up north to the Battle Back Centre at Lilleshall. We were given a wonderfully informative presentation by Lt. Col. Ian Thomas before having a grand tour of the incredible facilities. The team were also lucky enough to meet a few Battle Backers during the afternoon session of the week long Battle Back Multi Activity Course (MAC), and we’re very grateful to the staff including Jason, Ceri and Val, for such a warm welcome. We already have two golf courses booked at the Centre next year, and the whole team are very much looking forward to developing our relationship in 2015.
