Next up is The Berkshire where we play both the RED and BLUE courses, Monday, July 11, for £105.

Both stunning courses, they are regarded as two of the very best in Berkshire and we are particularly lucky to secure the booking during the summer months when they are at their very best.

To help keep costs down there is no carvery lunch, we save that treat for the Christmas Scramble  fixture, although the Club does put on a very impressive lunchtime “Golfer’s Menu”.  

The day starts with bacon or sausage rolls on arrival with sandwiches at the end of the day. 

There is no need to change after the morning round, lunch will be outside on the covered veranda.

Make sure you do not miss your  afternoon tee-time on the BLUE course as the Club is fully booked.    If you miss your tee-time it is unlikely there will be any available space to play in the afternoon. The Halfway Hut will be open for drinks and light snacks.

The cost of the day to members is £105;     Associate members £125 and guests – if numbers permit – £155.

If you have made arrangements to play with someone let me know, otherwise I will pair you up with a suitable group.    

The Ball Sweep, 2’s competition and Champagne for “Nearest the Pin” both morning and afternoon are all included in the price.

The fund raising “Back the Winner” competition costs £5 a pick and you can have as many goes as you like.  

Mobile phones can only to be used in an emergency or in the car park.    Trainers and jeans are not allowed.
