    Re: Thurs 28th Sept 2017, Swinley Forest

    I now have the full details for the day which are as follows:

    "Following last years very successful visit to Swinley Forest GC, we have been lucky enough to have this years golf day confirmed for Thursday, September 28th.
    Due to the Queens 90th birthday celebrations, all Crown related activities have been pushed back one week, hence the sightly later date.
    The one downside is that the cost has now increased to £160.00 for the day.
    Format will as always be;

    Bacon Roll, Tea / Coffee from 07.30am

    18 holes of golf for our rubbish recycled trophy

    The brilliant Swinley lunch

    You then have the choice of playing as many holes as you like again in the afternoon, this can be be a full 18 or one of the loops I.e. 1,2,3,4,16,17,18 or 10,11,12,13,14, the choice is yours, or follow the example of many of the others and just sit on the terrace and enjoy the view and hospitality.
    Afternoon tea is served on the terrace from approx. 4pm and is included in the cost of the day.

    Please let me know if you would like to be included this year, I am allowed a maximum of 60 players on the day

    In the unlikely case that a Swinley member may wish to play in the afternoon, the club have asked us to advise as to how many players will be playing additional holes."


    I believe also that Neil, the organiser, has asked Adger Brown, a very good comedian to say a few words at the prize giving. See Adger's web page here

    Neil has about 30 names signed up so far. I have the following names which I will add to Neil's list:

    Don't know if it will make a difference, but, The Queen was 90 last year, she's 91 this year.

    Maybe they are just a bit slow in sorting the party
