23 Mar 2020 THE DUCHESS Results


Dear Tour competitor

Following the Government’s directive yesterday to discourage large groups gathering at sports clubs etc Woburn G&CC has postponed the Rescheduled Christmas Fourball which was due to take place next Monday 23rd March.

As soon as the current crisis dies down and the end is in sight we will agree another date with Woburn. As you can imagine they are dealing with many cancelled events at the moment.

With regards to payments we cannot refund anyone who played in the original event on 14th December as we have already paid Woburn in full.  If you cannot make the new date once it is announced we will refund the £45 paid for catering / course exclusivity. 

If you entered the event on 23rd March and paid £135 we can offer you a full refund or you can keep the money on account until we agree a new date.
