Welcome to Penn Pond Waders Golf Society

Penn Pond

Penn Pond Waders Golf Society was established in 1989.  It was founded by a small group of golfers based in the Red Lion at Penn (just opposite the pond!). The society was formed to create the opportunity to be able to play various courses throughout the area and to have a healthy golf competition for local people. The society is still thriving and we currently have in the region of 50 members.  We also have a well-supported Ladies Section.

We run a 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 is fine.

The Waders Tour is also popular and is normally held in May each year either within the UK or abroad. The venue is generally chosen by the captain of the year.

A Prestige Day is normally held in November when we try to play a more substantial course and take advantage of the winter deals that most of the clubs offer. We have played courses such as Wentworth, Sunningdale, The Grove and The Belfry, for example. In 2012 we will be going to Woburn Golf Club.

The year is normally finished off with the Captains Charity Day where all proceeds are donated to a charity of the Captains choice. This event is always very well attended and on average we donate in the region of £3000 to the chosen local charity, long may it continue. In 2006 / 2007 / 2008 seasons we raised over £3,500 each year, fantastic support by all members and guests.

Away from the golf we organise a Ladies Night where you can entertain your ladies and friends at a fantastic Dinner & Dance. Enjoy a good meal in comfortable surroundings and dance the night away to a live band. Again, this is well attended with generally, around 200 members and guests present. This is held on the first Saturday in March each year.
