Aspley Guise and Woburn Sands Golf Club has welcomed its newest feature, with a new dry stone wall bridge and water feature opened as part of the club’s ongoing Centenary celebrations.

With the opening postponed from May due to heavy rain, the sun shone as more than 40 past captains and presidents joined the opening ceremony on the 16th hole, during a summer of celebratory competitions and events at the club.

And last weekend saw a two week-long golf festival kick off with a family fun day on Sunday, where young and old alike enjoyed an afternoon in the sun, with a special appearance from current world golf trick shot champion Geoff Swain, a hog roast, outdoor games and a bouncy castle, amongst other activities.

The coming weeks will see a variety of competitions for all elements of the club, culminating in the Captain’s Centenary Charity Day on Saturday July 5.

Opening the Centenary Bridge, club captain Fred Mercer, said: “We’re delighted to have built such a great and beautiful legacy for Aspley Guise and Woburn Sands Golf Club to enjoy.

“Celebrating 100 years of golf on such a magnificent course gives us all an immense sense of pride and this lovely new addition only enhances the amazing holes that we have here.

“And luckily the sun shone for us today!”
