Oxbridge Alumni Invitation Day
Berkhamsted

Fitz Match Organiser:

Format of Day:

At this event, Fitz GS hosts  alumni golfers from other Cambridge and Oxford Colleges in a pairs competition with the added spice of a Varsity Match (currently standing 1-1 in the series).

This is our largest event of the year with space for up to 48 golfers. Last year 13 different Oxbridge Colleges were represented – see Match Report). The host Fitz team is usually about 12 players. 

The format of play is fourball betterball, with, as far as possible, a Cambridge pair matched against an Oxford pair.

Berkhamsted is an outstanding venue with a lovely heathland course. It has no bunkers – but plenty of heather! The clubhouse is first class serving excellent food. Another attractive practical feature is that Berkhamsted can offer us a two tee start – essential to get a large number of golfers round in good time.

The cost of this day has sadly risen to well over £100 although this is not out of line for top courses in the South East in the Summer.
