Match v Oil Industry -Denham Golf Club – 27th October 2020
This is one of our oldest regular events played at our founding venue, Denham Golf Club. It is our annual match for a team of 8 played against the Oil Industry Golf Society. The Golf Society founding captain, John Smith, was a member at Denham Golf Club and of the Oil Industry Golf Society. He arranged this annual match which has been played since 1995 and was originally sponsored by BP. It is played in the morning over 18 holes between the two teams as a 4BBB match and is followed by the famous ‘Denham Carvery Lunch’ set in the Dining Hall surrounded by trophies in this traditional private members’ club. All CILT Golf Society members are eligible to bid for a place in the team.
We meet at 08:00 for coffee and Bacon Bap. The tee is reserved from 0830. Lunch is served at 13:00 with prize giving at 14:15

Instead, sitting comfortably in the Buckinghamshire landscape, it combines challenge and enjoyment for everyone. It is neither child’s play for the proficient nor torment for the rank and file, one of many reasons for its popularity among its visitors.
