Thanks to Donna Hunt, Berkshire second team captain and Centenary organiser, for sharing the news. How fabulous to have so many women coming together to celebrate such a significant event for the county.

Burgham Park Ladies 'Dress to Clash, Raise some Cash'

3rd June 2023

At Burgham Park, all three Captains’ are raising funds for Cancer Research UK, and as part of that the Ladies Section had a ‘Dress to Clash, Raise some Cash’ theme to our charity day.

We know how we all love our golf fashion, but for just one day we thought we’d go against the grain and dress in as many different and clashing colours as we could. We even had one Lady doing her own tie-dye clothing at home! There were trips to charity shops, raiding of wardrobes and borrowing of items from friends and relatives. The Ladies really embraced the challenge and looked great. There was a lot of laughter and a number of photographs taken.

We went on to have a lovely day and some great golf was played too – the winning score being an amazing 46 points from Mandy Scott. Relaxed golf in a fun atmosphere, can bring out the best in your game! We had a lot of fun prizes too, with a ‘best dressed’ along with the usual Nearest the Pin and Nearest the Line.

We raised an amazing £235 for Cancer Research, from a small section – a really fabulous effort.

Here are a few photos from the day (there are more!). I’m the one with the flowery cut-offs and the red and orange overtop – oh and the big yellow sunglasses. 😊

Thanks to Gill Smith, Lady Captain at Burgham Park for sharing and congratulations on your fundraising efforts. We love the idea of relaxed golf in a fun atmosphere!
