Golf Club Supper Evenings
The South Winchester Golf Club is a welcoming venue for Oliver’s Battery residents once a month, from 6.30 pm to 9 pm. In summer the terrace has a wonderful view down the valley, and in winter the huge log fire provides a cosy focus. There are meals available (last orders 7pm), or you can simply drop in for a drink and a chat. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and equally, to make some new ones. Quite a few people walk across the golf course itself from the footpath at the southern end of Treble Close, or there is plenty of parking. If you would like to come along and need a lift, please get in touch with Connie Leach (01962 865883).
Here are the dates for the next few months. We generally seem to meet around the third Thursday – 24th January, 21st February, 21st March, and 18th April. Hope to see you there!
