New beginnings, does this look appealing? Come and join our new Captain WB Stan Green and the other members of BMGS for the start of the new golfing season.
We have some old favourite regular courses and three new venues to explore this year. For any prospective new members the golfing day commences with bacon roll & coffee (of course), 18 holes of golf, normally Stableford format, followed by a meal. If you do not have a handicap do not worry, this can be accommodated.
You may have seen from earlier posts that the competitions held throughout the 2017 season have been keenly supported and we anticipate that our new members may give the old-timers a run for their money in 2018. No time for them to rest on their laurels, some of them have been consistent winners and with the help of the newer members they may be ousted from their complacency.
We have a new trophy this year, in memory of Derek Trice, who was always a regular participant and will be sadly missed from our friendly gatherings.
There are three competitions with other provinces to be held during 2018.
We compete with Bedfordshire in April at Abbey Hill. Unfortunately, for the first time, last year they managed to win and our new Captain is determined not to have a repeat this year.
In September, we have a three-way competition between Buckinghamshire/Berkshire/Middlesex to be held at Richings Park, Iver, one of the new courses. Although we will need a team of 12 to compete in the competition, attendance will be open to all members of the Society at these venues.
Fixtures for 2018:
09 April Winter Cup Three Locks
24 April Bucks v Beds Abbey Hill
21 May InterLodge Wycombe Heights
25 June Founders Trophy Weston Turville
16 July Derek Trice Trophy Harleyford
20 Aug Grenville Trophy Silverstone
06 Sept Tri-Province Competition Richings Park
25 Sept Bucks Open & AGM Aylesbury Vale
Our new Captain Stan Green sends you all his best wishes for 2018 and looks forward to enjoying your company on the golf course and to continue our charitable efforts throughout the year.
In September, we plan to arrange an informal Sunday lunch, open to all with wives and partners, to enable our newly inaugurated President WB Mike Powell to present the trophies won throughout the year.
