WOODFORD GC – TRIP

RBGC vets are scheduled to travel to Woodford GC on Monday 30 July 2018 to play in the first part of a reciprocal arrangement between the 2 clubs where we play for a perpetual trophy.

A nomination sheet will be available at the raffle table as from Monday 18 June and every Monday thereafter for any player who wishes to nominate to play in this event or alternatively you can contact any committee member to have your name registered.

Players can travel to Woodford by means of their own vehicle or can travel by bus which is provided free of charge. All other relative information about the game can be obtained by reading the nomination sheet at the raffle table.

As current holders of the perpetual trophy and in a endeavour to retain this, it is hoped that a strong showing of support for this trip will prevail. The winner of the trophy is determined by the aggregate of the top 10 scores from each club played at the 2 courses.
