Following the outstanding success of last years first visit, this year the Association is once again planning a Mini Tour to the Dorset Golf and Country Club (www.dorsetbowlsresort.com)

The venue has a 3 rink Indoor Bowling Green and there are 3 sessions each day of 2 hours starting at 10, 12 and 2. For the fit or keen amongst you there is the opportunity to play in more than one session should you want.

The accommodation comprises several chalets with 4 seperate on suite rooms. There is a communal area in each chalet where you can meet up for tea / coffee, reading the papers etc. These chalets have been awarded Gold 5 "*"'s by the English Tourist Board. There are also some rooms in the main hotel available. Disabled facilities are excellent throughout the centre.

Cost for the week will be 250 for bowlers, 230 for non bowlers, this includes Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. There is no single person supplement.

The provisional plan would be to play against another club on the Tuesday, Join in with a men v women's game on Wednesday and then Thursday there is the weekly open 4's tournament. Thursday evening there is a farewell dinner and the presentation of prizes. On the other 3 evenings entertainment is provided in the hotel.

For those who do not bowl and want to visit the local attractions there are certainly plenty nearby. Also for those who like to walk / bird watch there are plenty of opportunities in and around the wooded area on site. For golfers, equipment is provided free on site.

Those who travelled in 2016 did not have a bad word to say about the trip with the food, waiter service and accomodation all excellent and toroughly enjoyed. All the vegetables are fresh and the sweets home made. They also have an extensive bar menu including sumptious specials of the day.

Examples of their fayre are shown below.

We hope that this tour will interest you. If you would like to know more or want to reserve a place please contact me via the above details, i look forward to hearing from you.
