Bracknell Golf Club, Berkshire.
The annual meeting of the Bracknell Golf Club was held in the Victoria Hall on the 9th of January 1903. Mr James Tweedie, an old St Andrews player, was in the chair. The year’s accounts were presented and showed a deficit on the ordinary expenses and also an amount due on the initial expenses of laying out the course. As this was the first year of the club’s existence, the meeting considered the report satisfactory, and with a view to increasing the membership it was decided to reduce the subscriptions to £1/1/0, there was no entry fee. The course in general was said to be much improved. The President of the club was the Hon Arthur Walsh and the joint secretaries were Mr S W Lawrence and Mr C B Wilson.
