Sharnbrook Golf Club at Oakfield
On Wednesday the 13th of March at 9.30 a.m. six club members teed off at Oakfield Residential Home for adults with learning difficulties at the hamlet of Easton Maudit.
Their game was to play in two teams of 3 to erect an industrial poly tunnel frame. The practice of taking divots on our course soon became an advantage when digging deep holes for the structure feet to fit into.
Each metal hoop was just barely manageable by two players while the best putter in the team located the hoops into their locations .The game was decided on count back by the amount of cake eaten.
The funding for the garden project came via a local super store and with our club members giving their time and labour we made sure the residents were the true game winners!
On behalf of Oakfield can I give my most sincere thanks to the guys who supported me with this project.

GREENS COMMITTEE UPDATE 12 SEPTEMBER 2018
Astro turf to be added to bunkers together with additional sand, to be delivered onto the course on Friday 21st September. This will result in all bunkers having new sand.
These improvements will benefit members by improving playing conditions and should any inconvenience be caused to players, during the period this work is being completed, we would appreciate your patience.
As a trial, the area of grass leading onto the 8th and 9th greens will be left to grow up to the entrance of the green. This may cause slow golf balls in that area heading to the bunkers.
Thank you for your co-operation and help – Greens Committee
