Wiltshire Masonic Golf Society
The cries of 'fore' are common currency when members of the Wiltshire Masonic Golf Society meet to play, and whether you slice, hook or nobble the ball down the fairway to the green. you will always be guaranteed a warm welcome from members of the Wiltshire Masonic Golf Society.
The Society was formed to promote the game of golf within the Province for any brother who has an interest in playing. We have two open meetings, one at the beginning of the season and the other at the end. During the year we play 7 matches against the Provinces of Berkshire, Monmouthshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire (Isle of Wight) and also Bristol. All these matches alternate each year on a home/away basis.
Anyone who can play the game is welcome to join us. You need not be a member of a Golf Club nor have a handicap, just the willingness to have some fun with likeminded Masonic friends. We also encourage golfers to bring along their non-masonic friends to play and over the last couple of years a few of these have enjoyed the company so much that they are now masons. We have a Charity Golf Match each August and a raffle at each Provincial match that enables us to raise a considerable sum for Masonic and Non-Masonic charities. Our subscriptions for the year are fixed at £5 (a bargain)
Anyone wishing more information is encouraged to contact their Lodge golf representative, or email the Secretary of Wiltshire MGS. Merv Johns, 8 Bourton Avenue, Stratton-St-Margaret, Swindon, SN3 4LY. Tel (H) 01793 826220
Raising Funds and having fun
The Wiltshire Masonic Golf Society was formed to promote the game of golf within the Province and to foster Masonic goodwill between Brethren from neighbouring Provinces.
Apart from two Open events, one at the beginning of the season and the other in August, there is also an opprtunity to play against golfers from Berkshire, Bristol, Monmouthshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire & Isle of Wight.
There is no requirement for membership of a golf club or a formal handicap, the intention is to have fun and enjoy the company of good friends. To this end members are encouraged to bring a friend, who does not have to be a Freemason, although it has to be acknowledged that a number of golfers have joined our fraternity having first seen how everyone plays and enjoys the game.
The society hosts a Golf Open day in August at the Wrag Barn Golf Club, Nr Highworth in aid of local charities.
