Should you be interested in entering a team please contact: events@macintyrecharity.org On Sunday 22nd April, I will once again take on the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon. This year I will be running in aid of MacIntyre, a wonderful charity that provides learning, support and care for more than 1,200 children, young people and adults who have a learning disability and/or autism across England and Wales. If you would like to help me raise money for this fantastic charity, please visit my Virgin money-giving page uk.virginmoneygiving.com/StewartProctor1 Thank you for your support, Stewart Proctor Lady Members take up Alternative Challenge During the snow and closure of the courses, a group of lady members decided to have a go at something different. Dressed in blue boiler suits they abandoned golf and visited Milton Keynes Xscape where they had a go at Sky Diving. Fortunately the weather has now improved, spring is here and they are all back out enjoying their golf with their feet firmly on the ground. England v Celts Celts Captain, Bob Fairful presenting the trophy to England Captain, Mark Collender A great dish from Head Chef, Antony Rae On Saturday 10th March, the England V Celts match took place on the Duke’s Course. This annual fixture, which has been played since 1994, was well supported with 38 players on each side. Following breakfast there were motivational speeches from both the Club Captain, Mark Collender who lead the England team and Bob Fairful, the Celts Team Captain. The match proved to be a very close encounter, with the result just favoring the England Team, who prevailed with a score of 39.5 points to 36.5 points. Out of respect for Local Residents we would be grateful if members could please slow down when driving to and from the Club, particularly when approaching the bend on Longslade Lane where there is a concealed driveway. Michelle Watson, Clare Hind, Sheila Nanon, Rebekah Howe, Val Smith, Lindsey Parker, Julie Clarke, Sue Moore, Clare Nicolaou and Louise Egerton Bedford School in ISGA National Finals Only three fixtures were this term due to adverse weather, but the three fixtures played were of real significance. In the ISGA tournament, Robert Holden, Harry Brown and Fin Cummings had victories over Solihull 3-0 away then Warwick 2-1 at Buckingham Golf Club to win the regional final and a place at the National finals at St Mellion in Cornwall to be played in April, a terrific achievement! In the HMC foursomes, the team of Robert Holden, Harry Brown, Fin Cummings, Wilf Rush, Louis Densham and Lawrence Jeffries beat Culford 2-1 in a nail biting finish that saw two out of the three matches go to a play off. The boys are now in the Regional final. 300g chicken livers 1 whole egg 4 egg yolks 250g clarified butter Leave the chicken livers in a bowl of milk overnight in the fridge to take any bitterness out, then drain off and dry on a towel, in a large non-stick pan sauté the onion and garlic until soft, add the brandy and flambé, being very careful of your eyebrows! Once the flames have gone add the livers and stir well, you just want to seal the livers not cook them or the parfait will be grainy. Transfer the livers into a blender along with the eggs and seasoning then blitz. Slowly add the melted butter, as the machine is blending, until it is all incorporated. Transfer the mixture into ramekins and place in a dish with a little water then cook in the oven at 100 o C for 45 minutes to an hour, check the parfaits do not wobble when cooked, leave to cool and serve with some crusty bread and chutney. Serves 10 CHICKEN LIVER PARFAIT 1 chopped red onion 3 chopped garlic cloves 50ml brandy Salt and pepper 12

CLUBHOUSE Since the last issue of Woburn Golf News there have been a number of social functions. The Woburn’s Wizardry Theme Night in November, although disappointing in attendance, was one of the best nights we have enjoyed at the Club for some time. All those attending really embraced the Harry Potter style theme with some excellent costumes. The Bedford Suite, which was transformed to the ‘Great Hall’, was wonderfully decorated by our Lady Captain, Rita Whitmore, with the help of her daughter, Nicole and the social committee. Head Chef, Tony Rae and his team used their imagination to create a menu, which included the ‘Hogwarts’ starter, ‘Ravenclaw’ for the main course and ‘Dobby’s’ dessert buffet accompanied by Butterbeer! Our next theme night on Saturday 10th November will be based on the 1980’s. Members entered into the spirit of the evening Butterbeer Strawberry Jelly! Looking back over the festive season, there were over 150 members and their guests in attendance at the Christmas Carol Dinner. A delicious three course meal was served with entertainment from our in house member’s choir, the Woburn Warblers. Directed by John Lloyd-Richard’s, who also played the piano and with Pete Langford, of the Baron Knights leading the singing, there was audience participation for a number of carols, which added to the atmosphere. Pete Langford conducting the Woburn Warblers Our Gourmet Dinners and Sunday Carvery Luncheons continue to prove popular particularly Mother’s Day, which was a great family occasion, with a wonderful atmosphere and many taking up the option of pre-ordering bouquets. We have already taken a number of bookings for the Father’s Day Carvery, should you wish to attend please book your table as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Having reviewed our menus and prices both in the clubhouse and on course, our new menus will be launched as from the 1st May and will include some changes to our existing offering to give our members and guests new and exciting dishes to experience. The pre-ordering of wine for social events has worked extremely well and has proved beneficial in allowing us time to offer an improved service on the day. Please continue to help us by giving as much notice as possible. I would also like ask that you please ensure your Woburn Card is topped up sufficiently to cover the cost when booking events, ordering wine, etc. We are continuing to see an increase in the number of members using the Club to host private functions. If you are considering a special celebration for a BIG birthday, anniversary, wedding or just a family get together, please take into account this is something we are able to offer exclusively to members of Woburn Golf Club. A great example of this was a Mum v Cancer Charity Ball organised through Woburn Member, Gary Oliver for 178 people on Saturday 23rd December. “Just a quick note to thank you and Woburn Golf Club for everything you did to help our Charity Ball go fantastically well. Given everybody’s hard work, notably our girls, yourself and Woburn Golf Club, we managed to raise over £50,000 from the event” - Gary Oliver For several years, through referrals from our membership, we have successfully recruited family and friends as full and part time staff. Should you know anyone who is looking for a new job or career opportunity we have several vacancies, as shown on our website. If you know someone applying and you can offer a reference, please contact Katherine Toal or Tom Woolford. Dress Code Reminder We would like to remind all members or our dress code. We would ask that in order to avoid embarrassment you make certain these are conveyed in advance to any guests you are entertaining at the Club. • Blue denim jeans/denim shorts and untucked shirts on men are not allowed. • No trainers, t-shirts, hats or flip flops allowed within the clubhouse. • Mobiles may be used for data transmission only (emailing, texting and internet) but no voice use within the clubhouse or on the golf courses, except in an emergency. Rouge mullet, cucumber and asparagus Smoked loin of lamb, Marmite shank, honey mushrooms and puy lentils Please Note: When attending Sunday carvery luncheons in the Bedford Suite jackets and collared shirts are required.
