Badger, Badger, Badger…

Badgers...

What do they eat

Badgers are omnivorous (eat anything) but 80% of their diet is earthworms! Right now they are after some little grubs to bulk up for the leaner wintry months to come and we are like a favourite restaurant.

How do we manage them?

This year we are trying something new to encourage our friends the badgers to find a new restaurant! 

It won't stop them completely but it will definitely help!

October 22nd 2017, PRGC selected to host CBL Challenge Cup – Course Closed

Many of you will already know that PRGC hold the record as the course most often nominated to hold the National Nines Championships. Interestingly the CBL Challenge Cup is a championship which follows the same format.

We are very proud to have been selected to hold this prestigious championship at the club this year. This is a direct result of all the hard work put in by Barry Woledge as the event director and our very own John and Jake for presenting the course in such condition that we were worthy of being nominated. I also think that having a reputation for providing the best food and customer service makes a huge difference – so a massive thanks to Nick and the club house team.

The course will be closed on this day to host the event and we are keen to provide maximum notice for members and guests to minimise any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your understanding and once again, congratulations to PRGC for being nominated to host the event!

Captain’s Charity Day

There will be more written of the successes of the day and I will not repeat them. I simply wish to convey my thanks to all who participated whether that be as Members or Guests or those within and without the Clubhouse who did so much to present our Club to the highest standards.

It has always been my privilege to represent Princes Risborough Golf Club and its Members as Captain for 2016-7.

I have been honoured by the generosity, both financial and in spirit, which has been the pinnacle of the many successes of my Captain's Charity Day. More importantly that generosity conveys to Rennie Grove Hospice Care the respect and admiration that we have for the nursing skills and compassion that its services provide for those within the Chilterns area with life-limiting illnesses.  

The Winners... 

Championship Course:

Best individual with a score of 46 points = Jim Findlay
