Shrivenham Park Golf Club

Update

The following is a message from Shrivenham Park Golf Club:

Hello everyone,

Shrivenham Park has missed your loyal support in Social Putting and all the support that you gave us last year through supporting coffee meetings and in raffles.

We feel unable to hold any events at the moment due to government rules, however the club has been busier than ever since we returned at the appropriate time with 2 ball and recently 3 and 4 ball games.  The car park has never been so well used or the course seen so many people playing its fairways.  Thank you if you have been and played our course.

There are many good membership deals available should you wish to avail yourself of them.  Please either phone the club on 01793 783853 or ask at the window by the main clubhouse door.

The first tee is too busy for the putting green to be safe for visitors just putting on it and safety is most important.  However, we will return but most probably not until 2021.

There is a musical morning arranged for November and time will tell whether this is possible.  We will give you plenty of notice.

Stay safe and alert.  Missing you all,

 

Carole

Appeal for donations

Shrivenham Park needs every penny we can acquire at the moment to help us through the Coronovirus situation.  Following a very wet winter the course was so waterlogged the number of paying players reduced and takings were low; now, the Coronavirus has caused the closure of the course entirely, with the inevitable loss of revenue.

Our membership is small and as a members’ club we rely heavily on members and visitors playing and using our facilities.  We have applied for the government grants available and our staff our accepting lower wages at this time.

We know and accept the fact that many villagers around the Shrivenham area and in Shrivenham itself love to see the open green space between Watchfield and Shrivenham.  When it was looking as if the course was going to be acquired for building about 5 years ago, we fought hard to keep it and were encouraged by the feelings of local people.  We are not a park and cannot have people roaming the course, as golf is its primary function, but we really do need your support for this important community resource.

For this reason an online giving system has been set up and you can give no matter how small donation to Gofundme Shrivenham Park Covid 19 drive to survive.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this appeal:  please donate to protect this important part of the local community and its green spaces.  We look forward to receiving your support.

About the club

Created in 1966, the club became a full 18-hole parkland course in 1969, covering 110 acres.  With the continual expansion of Shrivenham and Watchfield the course now occupies the last green space between the two villages. Your support will help the club protect this important part of the local community and the landscape.

Full membership provides access to a packed calendar of competitions and events, a clubhouse with bar and food and a small shop offering golfing essentials. Membership also extends to the junior golfers in the family!

The club had a busy schedule of Christmas competitions and events – including putting on ice! And watch out for UFOs over Shrivenham when we start our night-time golf with illuminated golf balls!

Why not give it a go?

Contact the club on 01793 783853 or take a look at the club’s website here.

…and finally:

The junior section of Oxfordshire Ladies County Golf Association (OLCGA) has a busy schedule of events for girls. Membership of the association’s junior section is just £5 per month; join girls from all over the county and play the 9 hole Blenheim course at Kirtlington.

Carole Lee – County delegate for the Ladies section at Shrivenham – organises play days at Kirtlington and Drayton Park. Go to the OLCGA website here and look under the Junior section for more information.
