Golfing success at Hartley Witney
The Turners’ Golf section posted good results at the annual Ray Jeffs Cup, held at Hartley Witney Golf Course on July 26th. This is an inter-livery competition held with the primary purpose of raising funds for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, London Section – over the years it has raised over £60,000 which goes to help less-privileged youngsters take part in the scheme.
17 livery teams competed on the day, with the Turners’ team of Peter Ellis, Les Thorne and Nigel Luson coming in a very creditable 3rd position behind the winning Actuaries. Nigel also took the individual bronze position with 39 stableford points.
Hartley Wintney is a friendly, members club, situated in the beautiful North East Hampshire countryside, on the edge of the rural town of Hartley Wintney. The club has been providing enjoyable golf for over 125 years and is the ideal location for a relaxing game of golf in tranquil surroundings with many mature trees and water hazards. The course is easily reached from the M3 and M4 and is close to the borders of Berkshire, Surrey and Hampshire.
Whilst we are a members club, we welcome visitors and guests to enjoy all that is on offer here at Hartley Wintney. The atmosphere in the club encourages you to relax and enjoy your visit. We aim to provide an environment where the whole family can enjoy themselves, here there is something for everyone. The club is the ideal setting to recharge your batteries and to escape from the stresses of daily life.
There are a number of friendly roll ups, across the week that help new members settle in and at weekends the start sheet operation is particularly helpful for new members looking for a game.
Hartley Wintney is an 18 hole, par 71 parkland and wooded course measuring 6277 yards. The layout has been carefully designed to provide a challenge for golfers of all standards.
The next livery golf event will be the Dowgate Challenge held at Worplesdon Golf Club on 25th October – golfers are urged to put the date in their diary and keep it free, as this is a very fine course and a competition the Turners have won in the past.
