The Golfers’ Lucky Dip Envelope is a competition costing £5 per player, (included in the cost for the day), which buys a sealed unmarked envelope on arrival at Reception which contains the name of one of the golfers playing that day. If that name is a member of either the winners or second team then you will be rewarded with a cash prize.

The Waterloo Putting Challenge costs £1 per player, (included in the cost for the day). This competition on the carefully reset practice putting green is a gentle reminder that both pace and time will be needed later.

The Nearest THE Gin (NG), competition costs £1 per player, (included in the cost for the day). The winner will be drawn from a list of those whose tee shot comes to rest within the target circle.

The 18 Hole Mixed Bowmaker Stableford Competition will be the two best scores of three to count on each hole. Individuals not bringing others to make up a team of three are asked to nominate on the application form with whom they would like to play. will provide a free drinks point on the 8th which will be stocked with canned beers/lager plus small bottles of wine – one drink per player. A small voluntary donations towards ABF The Soldiers’ Charity would be much appreciated.
