Getting into the Swing of it!
This September Elmbridge Village, was proud to sponsor an exciting tournament at Bramley Golf Club, which is located next door to the village. Up for grabs were vouchers to spend on golf equipment at the on-site Pro Shop for the top four places!
Golfers were playing for the Makin Trophy in a Members Senior competition. Those playing and perfecting their swing enjoyed panoramic views over the majestic Surrey Hills, as they made their way around the course.
The competition was friendly but fiercely fought, with just four points between first and sixth place.
After the eighteen-hole match players enjoyed a delicious meal of chicken supreme with Dauphinois potatoes followed by trifle, which was prepared by the club chef.
Darren Welch regional sales manager at Retirement Villages said: “Elmbridge Village was delighted to be able to support the Seniors competition. We are very lucky to have the club so close to the village. We believe that being part of a community whether that’s living within a village setting or by joining clubs and hobby groups, is essential to a fulfilling retirement. Golf is a great way to socialise and a sport that you can take at your own pace – walking the course certainly keeps you fit.”
Duncan Marshall, Bramley Golf Club, Club Manager said: “I think golf is great at bringing people together in their later years. We get new members who start their retirement by joining the club and make friends straight away. I really feel that it’s a fairly unique opportunity for people when they come into retirement. I even think that some members treat this as their job once they finish working, but a job that they love.”
Neil Jackson was the winner on the day with Leslie Southwell coming a close second place. Andrew Jennings finished third and David Davies came in fourth.
Well done to everyone that took part and a big thank you to Retirement Villages for sponsoring the event.
