Taunton and Pickeridge Golf Club are planning a number of events over the weekend of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

On Thursday 2nd June there will be a Jubilee Quiz starting at 7pm costing £2 per person to enter with food specials available. At 9.45pm there will be Beacon Lighting featuring trumpeter Luis Martello.

On Friday there will be a Jubilee Stableford which is open to all categories of membership and includes a barbecue.

Sunday 4th June there will be a Platinum Team Golf Competition. There will also be an afternoon tea including sandwiches, pies and cakes costing £12.50.

The 30th Pro-Am will be taking place at T&P on Friday 1st July 2022. This event is one of the highlights of the club’s golfing year with 40 professionals from the South-West competing for a substantial prize fund.

Each professional and their three amateur players form a team competing for the amateurs’ prize table. 

The Pro-Am is an opportunity for Club Captain, Rob Darvell, and Ladies’ Captain, Annie George, to raise funds for their chosen charity, HEADWAY Somerset. This local charity supports people in Somerset who have suffered a head trauma, whether it be an accidental head injury or one resulting from a medical condition.

Application forms for team entry are available from the Club Office (01823 421537) or can be downloaded from the club website.

Also, congratulations to T&P honorary member Tom Sloman who last week won the Laguna Phuket Challenge in Thailand on the MENA Tour.

The former Junior Champion stormed the course with a seven under par  opening round of 63 which he repeated for his third round to win the event by five strokes.
