Vinothec Compass, Greenwich

Vinothec Compass, North Greenwich – I remember the last golf outing I went to was a team building session at work. That was, I’d say, 10 years ago? So, a speedy masterclass with instructor Gary came in handy. Ivy’s turn on the bay where the personal coaching looked like...
