South Cheshire Masonic Golf Society Continues to Raise Funds for Specialised Wheelchairs

A small field of 28 golfers attended the recent SCMGS golf day hosted by Northop Golf Club. Northop always provide a warm welcome for the SCMGS and the field got off at 12.30 prompt. The course presented well and strong winds challenged some of the tight fairways, by mid-afternoon a very heavy downpour provided even more difficulty as the players battled the elements, winds strong enough to turn some of the most hardiest umbrellas inside out.

As players returned to the clubhouse somewhat battered, a warm and cheery welcome from the staff met them, sitting down to a hearty steak pie meal brought smiles to the members, made even broader by a hot apple crumble and custard. The course  provided 3 players on 34 points, the winner, Simon Regan taking the trophy on the count back on the back nine. The non-mason member winning his prize on a score of 35 points was Matthew Peers.

An impressive £800 was raised during the day which will be put towards the next wheel chair needed for a deserving recipient.

Frodsham now awaits the final venue of 2018 with Captain Rod McClelland holding his day at another fine golf course on the 20th of September. The end of the season dinner and dance being held on the 28th of September 2018 at Flint Mountain View Hotel.

The Societies main form of fund raising comes from competitive golf days such as this and it plays at some of the best golf courses in Cheshire, Wirral, North Wales and Shropshire. The members are encouraged to invite guests and membership comes from both Freemasons and non-masons. The SCMGS are always looking  to expand the current membership and you don’t have to be a fantastic player, just someone who likes the game and the social side that goes with it.
