Members Meeting – Beaconsfield Golf Club – 13th April 2021
This pre-season event has previously been played at Denham and Gerrards Cross Golf Club and provides a relaxing opportunity for a get-together, some golf and a venue for the Golf Society AGM. This year, we plan to go to Beaconsfield Golf Club for our early season opener. It is a golf course with a great pedigree. Open to CILT Golf Society members and guests for golf, fellowship and networking. The day will start with the Golf Society AGM at 09:30 (coffee and bacon rolls available) and followed by an 18 hole Stableford competition starting at 10:30
Beaconsfield is a beautifully presented, classic HS “Harry” Colt designed course (Par 72 SSS 72) which measures 6575 yards and opened in 1914. The course remains basically the same as when it was originally designed and has many of his trademark features. In particular it is very well bunkered and has unusually large greens. Each of the holes has its own character and is separated from its neighbouring holes by mature mixed woodland. Apart from the 6th and 8th hole it offers very easy walking, though a few single seat buggies are available for hire directly from the professional. The practise facilities are excellent – particularly the Luke Donald short game area!. Range tokens are available from the Professional.
Notes for Players
Professional’s Shop Chris Dodds, the PGA Professional runs a well-stocked modern shop. Golf trolleys and two, single seater buggies are available for hire.
