Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is known to millions for the work it does helping those who have served their country, not only in the Second World War but in conflicts since, and even ongoing as we see so tragically in the news. The nation comes to a halt on November 11th and rightly so to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you.

 

 

100 Years of Service - Royal British Legion  1921 - 2021

In May 2021 the Royal British Legion celebrates its 100th anniversary. We are hoping that a full golf programme will be possible and are asking Clubs which wish to play in the Spring (either instead of, or as well as November) will get in touch to find out details.

Remembrance

Many hundreds of Clubs take part in our regular November events around Remembrance. If you would like to join in this programme (which most Clubs play on an annual basis) please just get in touch - email at the foot of this page. We supply souvenirs for every player, and gold medals for the winner(s) in each Club.

All we ask is that you send all the donations to RBL in their main bank account (or by cheque) - all details will be given to you as appropriate. Thank you.

 

In November 2020, with the country in lockdown, Maidenhead GC had planned an event where players would place a small wooden memorial cross on the 18th fairway where their drive landed and, on the cross, they would have written the name of a family member or friend who they would like to remember at this time of the year. Sadly the national lockdown meant that this event was cancelled though everyone volunteered to donate their competition fee to RBL. The PGA Professional, Steven Geary, placed the crosses on the fairway anyway, and took this photo. 

Thank you Steve and the Members of Maidenhead GC.

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Ladies of The Worcestershire GC also turned their hands and talents to creating a montage of poppies, which adorns the entrance to the club dining-room. Thank you Julie and the talented Ladies of The Worcestershire GC.
