The season starts with the Berkshire Masonic Provincial Golf Society (BMPGS) Invitation played in March as a pairs better ball competition consisting of member and guest. The best individual at the BPMGS Invitation can win the Sandhurst Cup.
We also compete for The Windsor Cup, The Vanderpump Trophy, Edwin Flavell Trophy and lastly the The Benford Cup, which replaced the retired Langley Cup in 2010. These trophies are also played for in conjunction with our Provincial matches to reduce the number of fixtures. The Victor Ludorum Trophy is awarded for best aggregate scores, for anyone who has not won or received a runner up.
The year ends with an annual ladies night presentation and dinner where our proceeds are presented to the respective Masonic Charities. Since 2000, the BPMGS has given in excess of £40,000 to Masonic Charities.
Further matches are arranged against other Provinces, i.e. Oxon, Surrey, Wilts, Hants and IoW, Bucks, Middlesex and Wiltshire. The most notable event annually is the SE England Beauchamp Trophy, in which up to 10 Provinces compete. Berkshire won the competition in 2011, 2013 and 2017 and were runners up in 2014.
The Annual Subscription is currently £20.00, plus any voluntary donation towards the charity fund. We welcome new members both Mason’s and non-Mason’s and openly welcome guests at all fixtures at home or away, many who have gone on to become fellow Masons.
