Charity Day at Theale Golf Club, Reading
Recently appointed DGS Director, Stan Bembenek from Crowthorne, Berks is also Chairman at his local Reading Town FC. So when they held a Charity Day it seemed only right there should be a team of disabled players from DGS in attendance showcasing the sport that is disabled golf.
The venue was Theale GC which provided some interesting challenges on a mixed day of sunshine and showers. Formerly our Honorary Vice President, Stan is also Marketing Director at electronic components business BT2000; with effect from 1st September 2012, Stan takes over financial responsibility for DGS. In his spare time Stan takes time out to chat with patients at Royal Marsden about his journey with bone cancer, as he says “It’s not what you can’t do, it’s what you can do”.
Competition results are as follows… 3rd Alan Moulpied (DGS) with 35points; 2nd Martin Cooper (Reading Town FC) with 33 points; 1st was Stan Bembenek with 36points. Longest drive was won on the 18th by Michael Overton; Nearest the Pin on the challenging 6th par-3, by Karl Hughes (Reading Town FC).
