Our season opening Members’ Meeting is booked for Tuesday 13 April 2021 at Beaconsfield Golf Club.
The meeting, which is being organised by Derek Messenger, will commence at 0930, when coffee and a bacon roll will be available. Starting from the 1st tee at 1030, we will then play in threes to compete in an 18-hole Handicap Stableford for The Chairman’s Cup. This will be followed by a 3-Course Meal and, hopefully, some form of Prize-giving. This is described as the Members’ Meeting but guests will be welcome. Obviously, non-members will not be able to compete for The Chairman’s Cup but there will be other prizes. We currently have no main sponsor for this event but costs will be subsidised from Golf Society funds. As a result, we have been able to reduce the cost of this £100 package to £55 for entitled GS members, including the coffee and bacon roll on arrival, 18 holes of golf, a 3 course meal with wine, and the competition prizes. Non-entitled members of the Society and guests are required to pay a partly subsidised price of £70 per person. Please return your Meeting Entry Form (MM Entry Form 2021) and payment by 4 April 2021 to Derek – Tel: 01494-875998; Mob: 07765-900722; e-mail: email@example.com Derek will send out a note drawing attention to Beaconsfield Golf Club rules, timings and directions.
Early discussions with the Club indicate that, if Covid-19 restrictions are eased to the extent that we can go ahead with this event, we will probably be returning to a tier system with BGC being in Tier 2 to 4. They hope to be able to offer golf and catering but with restrictions on mixing and social distancing. As we did at our last Autumn Meeting, this means that we may have to assemble, play and eat in our playing groups but would not be able to get together for a prize-giving or for an AGM. A decision will be taken nearer the time on whether prevailing restrictions are too onerous to make the event worthwhile.
This HS Colt designed parkland course set in well-wooded land with its traditional style clubhouse is an attractive and popular venue and we look forward to our day there
