Meet Tom Lynch – The Men’s 19+ captain

Tom has been a member of Reading Golf Club for years and plays off a handicap of 22.  

Come join in….. 

We aim to provide a section where you don’t need a low handicap to enjoy all aspects of the club; where having a good time and enjoying the companionship of your fellow players is paramount. 
This is achieved through competitions restricted to 19+ members and by matches against other sections of Reading Golf Club and against the 19+ sections of other golf clubs (home and away).
Most of these matches are followed by drinks and meals where members get to enjoy the company of those against whom they have played. 
The emphasis of this truly friendly section is on social interaction. Although there is a competitive edge to the matches, the taking part is always more important than winning. 

Player of the Year


We have a “player of the year” mini-league. Derived from 19+ matches played and competitions won.

Not only an impressive “player of the year” trophy, but the winner gets to show off the “Bandit” head cover for 12 months!
