Our Annual Founder Presidents Cup Golf Day at East Berkshire Golf Club was an absolute triumph! The anticipation was palpable as a formidable field of golfers, including both male and female, fearlessly braved the chilly morning start. The golfing abilities on display ranged from seasoned veterans with low handicaps to enthusiastic newcomers with higher handicaps.

In a bold move to enhance the inclusivity of the event, our golfing group decided to extend eligibility to wives and family of our members. This decision proved to be a game-changer, as we witnessed history in the making: For the very first time, a Lady emerged victorious, etching her name on the prestigious Founder Presidents Trophy. Let's hear it for Glen Ennis, the extraordinary wife of Br George Ennis, who himself had triumphed multiple times in the past. Glen's exceptional round yielded an impressive 38 points, securing her a resounding victory.

Glen's achievement is a testament to her skill and determination. With a handicap of 24, lower than the group average, she displayed true prowess on the course, leaving her competitors in the dust. The runner-up, Paul Turner, put up a valiant effort with 31 points but couldn't catch up to Glen's stellar performance.

Not to be outdone, George Ennis, a force to be reckoned with in his own right, claimed the prize for Nearest-the-Pin on the challenging 5th Hole, showcasing his precision and finesse.

The exhilarating day of golf concluded with a delightful two-course lunch in the clubhouse, where the atmosphere buzzed with celebration and camaraderie. It was the perfect backdrop for a well-deserved presentation to honor Glen's remarkable achievement.
