There cannot be a finer setting for this summer fixture than the  RED and BLUE courses that wind their way through  heathland  and woods in some of the most  stunning Berkshire countryside.

You will not find a better test of golf anywhere and, as  most of you will know, the Club is also famous for its mouth-watering food so prepare your waistlines for that traditional carvery lunch with all those wonderful old fashioned puddings!

Included in the £85 cost of the day are both rounds of golf, the RED in the morning for the singles and then in the afternoon out on the BLUE for the drawn greensomes. There is coffee on arrival with bacon roll, the carvery lunch and sandwiches, PLUS,  £5 for entry into the  2’s and the Ball Sweep.  A full English breakfast to start the day can also be ordered on arrival but this will need to be paid separately.

There is also the fund raising “Back the Winner” contest at £5 a time, have as many goes as you like.

This fixture was the start of an amazing run of form for last year’s winner, former Captain Lisa Heywood, whose win off 18 handicap was the first of several handicap cuts during the year by both the Society and her home Club so that she ended the season playing off  13!

Examples of “ready golf” suggested by the R&A

Hitting a shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a challenging shot
and is taking time to assess their options.

Shorter hitters playing first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait.

Hitting a tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play.

Hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball.

Putting out even if it means standing close to someone else’s ball.

Hitting a shot if a person who has just played from a greenside bunker is still farthest
from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker.

When a player’s ball has gone over the back of a green, any player closer
to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the
other player is walking to their ball and assessing their shot.

Marking scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except that the first player
to tee off marks their card immediately after teeing off.

Flag can be “left in” on the green when putting.

Penalty drop of Balls “Knee High”.
