SyI Golf Day

East Berkshire Golf Club. Ravenswood Avenue. Crowthorne. Berkshire, RG45 6BD
Join the Security Institute for this members-only golf day! A perfect way to meet other members for a relaxed (if not competitive) day of golf, feel free to book your own team of 4 but don't worry if you don't know anyone we will create the teams. Don't forget to still bring your business cards to swap! About East Berkshire GC Recognised as one of the best courses in the South of England, East Berkshire Golf Club was founded in 1903 and is a very traditional heathland course. Heather is a big feature, providing a number of cross-hazards on some of the long holes. Cleverly designed doglegs ensure that the course plays longer than the yardage suggests. The par three 5th is very special and certainly the signature hole at East Berkshire. The green is well protected by a ditch to the front, a lateral ditch with out-of-bounds to the left and a very hungry bunker on the right. The tee shot must carry 150 yards over rough ground to reach the green. With trees on either side, this is a tough par three. The East Berkshire Stag was introduced in 1976 – a competition open to amateur golfers with a handicap of six and under. The first winner of the event was none other than Sandy Lyle with a two-round total of 141. At less than 6,500 yards, the course is not long by modern standards but the constant encounter with doglegs, tree-lined fairways, carries across streams and the tangly heather will tax the skills of many a golfer intent on playing to handicap. It is a very attractive course and whoever decides to play here will be assured of an enjoyable round from start to finish.

The Team

Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that the Institute supports. This year we are proud to support Send a Cow.

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity. Uganda was just emerging from a long civil war, communities and their farmland had been destroyed and much of the country’s livestock wiped out. Several of the UK farmers flew to Africa to investigate how they could help.

In 2017 the charity Emerge Poverty Free merged with Send a Cow. Together they support even more families in Africa, empowering them to secure their own futures and helping them to lift themselves from poverty.
