Annual Golf Day
11 June 2021
Ramside Golf Club
Polish off your 9 irons and get ready for a fantastic day of golf at the Grace House Annual Golf Day kindly sponsored once again by WL Distillery.
This year our event takes place at the beautiful Ramside Golf Club playing England’s newest golf course, the Cathedral Course. The Cathedral Course has been built on rolling countryside between the villages of Belmont and Pittington with breath-taking natural features including ridges, becks, and valleys. The course extends out over a broad hilltop with views of Durham Cathedral and as far afield as the Angel of the North in Gateshead, before dropping down into a valley and rising again to return to the parkland estate where its closing holes end back at the clubhouse and hotel.
The middle holes are laid out across a high plateau, previously called ‘Hilltop Farm’ - with wide-open skies and 360-degree views - then drop down into a striking valley with dramatic elevation changes, mature trees, steep banksides, and a coursing beck.
Designer Jonathan Gaunt calls the stretch of holes from the 11th to the 14th ‘Ramside’s Amen Corner.’ The downhill par-three 12th bears an uncanny resemblance to its famous counterpart in Georgia but instead of Rae’s Creek, Sherburn Beck stands guard at the front of the green.
Entry for a team of 4 is £350 and this includes breakfast on arrival, 18 holes followed by a delicious 2 course meal and trophy presentation. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with fellow golfers and build lasting business relationships whilst supporting a fantastic local charity.see more events
GINS SET TO GET THEIR KNIT ON FOR CHARITY
24 November 2021
WL Distillery have been knitting up quite a ginpire over the year with their award-winning range, and now their signature bottles will be taking on a festive twist this season to support Sunderland based charity, Grace House.
The inspiration for WL Distillery comes from the founder and Managing Director, Scott Wilson-Laing spending his summers in his grandad’s garden, and now Scott has called in extra support this season from his Nana to support a charity very close to his heart.
