Redbourne Golf Club in the Summer of 2021. 


Another season over but unlike any other – moving out of lockdown the Bears went into double booking society events for 2021. We anticipated that there would be a strong demand to get back into society golf and indeed some courses were restricting play to members only. We were proved to be correct, hosting some of our largest fields during the year with a forty four at Whipsnade utilizing a two tee start.


Badgemore Park and Newbury & Crookham hosted back to back meetings which again meant we could accommodate a larger than normal number of players. In the early part of the season, we gave booking priority to our 65 members, topping up with visitors/guests nearer the scheduled date. We finished the season at The Oxfordshire who gave over forty of us a super day and end on a high after what was a very slow start to the season.


All the courses we played in 2021 were extremely cooperative and went out of their way to welcome us back following the 2020 and early 2021 disruption. Despite this we have still been able to donate in excess of £1800 to various organisations including our designated charity, The Cancer Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.


A full diary has been arranged for 2022 and we hope to again achieve good size fields and as well as enjoying our golf, raise money for some very good causes.
