Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Golf Society
Click here for an archive of previous news items.
Following an idea from Tony Stapleton over 40 village golfers were canvassed in the Spring of 2003 to see if they would participate in a local Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Golf Society. The objective was to have fun, meet other village golfers and play on different courses. The idea became so successful that we now have over 50 village golfers registered on our mailing list.
We meet twice a year. The first meeting is always an individual competition and is usually held at the Springs GC in June. The second meeting is a team event held on a different course of which a villager is a member and usually occurs in early September.
Details and entry forms are circulated (email and post) approximately 6 weeks before the actual competition date. So if you are not on our mailing list and would like to join (or know a villager who would) please contact either Gerard Varley (Tel (01491) 826015) or Jamie Robertson (Tel (01491) 837245).
David Fox wins Village Golf Cup for the second time!
Well done David Fox in winning the Village Golf Cup for the second time. David scored 44 points in an outstanding round. This was the 13th meeting of the Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Golf Society held on June 3rd at the Springs Golf Club using the individual Stableford format. Twenty one villagers competed for the individual challenge cup. The conditions were good and the course was in excellent shape. In addition to David as the overall winner our congratulations go to Alistair Butt who was second with 35 points and David Reay who was third. Gary Kent achieved the longest drive for men and Sarah Wintle the longest drive for the ladies. Ben Pampiglione was nearest the pin.
Tony Stapleton presented the prizes at a very convivial dinner that was held afterwards in the Club House. He also emphasized the need for some younger villagers to volunteer to be part of the organizing team to retains its fresh and innovative approach! Everyone agreed it was a great day and a wonderful way to meet up with other like minded villagers and have some fun. The Autumn meeting is again being held at Goring and Streatley Golf Club on Friday September 25.
