Over 90 players from all over the country converged on the Oxfordshire course to take part in our fifth Golf Day, organised by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays and generously sponsored by the Andalucian Tourist Board.

Chris Shukla won with a score of 40 points and received a golfing holiday for two at the prestigious 5 star El Rompido Hotel in Andalucía.

Chris also won the team prize along with his golfing partners Gary Aswani and Balvant Parmar.

Talking after his win, Chris said: “I congratulate Ramblers Worldwide Holidays for organising a well planned and most enjoyable Golf Day. The day was not blessed with warm sunshine but the warm and welcoming approach of the Ramblers Worldwide Holidays’ staff lifted the players’ spirits. I look forward to next year’s Golf Day.”

Individual runner up was Ramblers Leader Bill Cooper, with Janet Goodall a close third, earning her a voucher off her next Ramblers Worldwide holiday.

Other individual prizes, sponsored by Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines, Keela Outdoor Clothing, Barclays Capital and Ten Alps, went to Bill Timpson, Barry Carter and Ian Shadbolt. Nearest the pins were won by Declan Dwyer and Keith Milton. Simon Fletcher won the longest drive and Barbara Talbott was thrilled to win the hole-in-one putting competition at her first ever attempt.

We hope some more golfing clients will join us next year. If you’re interested to find out more, then please contact Tony Maniscalco, Marketing Manager ontonym@ramblersholidays.co.uk.
