Welcome to Penn Pond Waders Golf Society

Penn Pond

Penn Pond Waders Golf Society was founded in 1989 by a small group of golfers based at the Red Lion at Penn (just opposite the pond!). The society was formed to create an opportunity for members to play various courses throughout the area and to run a number of competitions with prizes at each event. The society is still thriving and we currently have in the region of 60 members.  We also have a well-supported Ladies Section.

We run an individual championship event throughout the year, by taking the best 4 scores out of 6 events to create the Champion Golfer for that year. There is no pressure to play all 6 if you wish to play just one or two that’s fine.

The Waders Tour is also popular, the venue for which is chosen by the captain for the year. Towards the end of April, a large party of ‘Waders’ flew out to Faro for 4 nights and 3 rounds of golf, including 2 at the fabulous San Lorenzo golf course.

Our annual Prestige Day takes place on November 5th when we will be visiting the wonderful New Zealand Golf Club, near Woking, for the first time. Rated as one of the top 100 golf courses in the UK, it’s bound to be an enjoyable day out.

The year rounds off on Friday 29th November at Ashridge GC for our annual Captains Charity Day where all proceeds are donated to a charity of the Captains choice. Over the past 2 years, we have raised over £7,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Diabetes UK, which was a tremendous effort. We would like to thank all our members and guests who gave so generously in support of such a great cause.
