For the Feltmakers’ Golf Day 2019, which was held on 19 June 2019, we returned to the Beaconsfield Golf Club. Beaconsfield is a beautifully presented, classic HS “Harry” Colt designed course. The course remains essentially the same as when it was originally designed in 1913 and has many of Harry Colt’s trademark features. In particular, it is very well bunkered and has unusually large greens.
We had 12 attendees playing golf which included a good contingent of Past Masters and a couple of carefully chosen guests. Unfortunately, unlike the previous year, which was gloriously sunny, the forecast was for heavy rain so we started our round with a good degree of trepidation and fully loaded with wet weather kit even though we were playing in the middle of June! Luckily, the rain generally held off for most players until the last couple of holes, when it did then pour down.
Once we had dried off and had a couple of warming drinks in the bar, we all enjoyed a very good lunch with prize giving with some additional guests, including the Master.
