5th August 2019
It's not great weather for grass and gardens but golfers are loving the summer sunshine! A huge well done to the Deanwood greenkeepers who continue to produce a wonderful course for us all to enjoy in some very difficult conditions.
On the golf course we say congratulations to Derek Major who has just this weekend won the Scratch Cup for the 4th time. His first victory was in the events inaugural year of 1999, he really has weathered well! He also had yet another hole-in-one during a match last week, and on the very difficult 3rd hole as well.
Away from Deanwood last years triumphant Interclub Challenge team tried to retain the trophy at Donnington Grove. A creditable 4th place on a wet and difficult day was very satisfactory. Claire Goddard was extremely unlucky not to win the Ladies Singles event finishing just a point behind the winner. David Lyons did however triumph in the Mens Singles.
The Summer BBQ with Darren Booker-Wilson from Donnington Valley Hotel took place just over a week ago and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. The Sideways Collective Jazz & Blues Octet entertained everyone through the evening and the food went down a storm. Thank you to Darren for his time and effort and to all who attended. The event raised £150 for The Captains Charity, Berkshire Vision.
Friday 16th August - Allan Snook Memorial Trophy in aid of the NSPCC.
We have space for 2 more teams but be quick! The annual texas scramble is always popular and to remind you it is teams of 3 and members can bring guests.
