Golf - The Giles Machin Memorial Trophy
On the 17th December last year the Association lost one of its great stalwarts Giles Machin. Giles was a great supporter of the Association in general and the OR Golf Society in particular. He loved his golf and the social side that came with it. To mark his passing we have decided to play for the "Giles Machin Memorial Trophy" on the morning of 11th November 2017at Ruthin Pwllglas Golf Club. There will be a Champagne breakfast at 10.30 am followed by 9 holes of golf. Giles' son William will be joining us for the weekend so do come and enjoy the beauty and fun of the Ruthin Pwllglas golf club with your friends.
