Itsa wrap for Castle - Update April 4th, 2018
The Board is delighted to announce that Itsa will be the new Catering Franchisee in Castle. This is a very exciting time for us all, new kitchen and new menus. I am sure you, the Members, will extend the usual Castle welcome to Peaches and Domini Kemp and their team.
We know they will bring a fresh energy to Castle with exciting new menus to whet our appetites after those tough days on the course.
Through their existing concession and franchise arrangements they have shown an ability to develop long term relationships and deliver a high-quality service.
We believe that Itsa is the ideal partner for Castle Golf Club and look forward to enjoying all they have to offer in the years ahead.
On behalf of the Board
