Mytime Active Chief Executive Steve Price said, “Orpington will be a great addition to our growing range of golf courses and will complement those we already manage at High Elms (Farnborough), Bromley, Barnehurst (Bexley) and Cobtree (Maidstone). As a social enterprise we are committed to improving quality and value, and we’re looking forward to meeting customers to discuss potential future improvements.”
