Thame & District

Golf

The Golf Group meetings are organised by Greater Thame U3A and are open to members of Thame & District U3A.

This group organises a golf event monthly on the last Thursday of every month throughout the year. A nominated organiser runs the event and 3 weeks or so before emails all members to play at the chosen venue. The 12 venues are selected at the group’s AGM held in December at its Christmas golf event and meal. This is usually held on the second Thursday in December.

The group usually play a golf game called "Texas Scramble" or "Florida Scramble" as this game allows players of all standards to play together in teams and enjoy the company of players with better or higher handicaps. The days golf fee is made up of several parts; green fees, breakfast (usually a bacon butty and coffee) contribution to the 7 prizes and a late lunch. Prices vary according to club and time of year. The group aims to keep the cost under £30 per person per outing for the day and the courses within 15 miles from Thame. Golfers know in advance who is booked to play so lifts and car sharing can be worked out in advance. If golfers require buggies they arrange them with the golf club in advance of the game.
