Days Gone By:
When I first joined March Golf Club, we didn't have a clubhouse anywhere near as good as the current one. We were in a little wooden hut that served as our club house. We ran the place ourselves; the men ran the bar on a rota system while the ladies did all the catering. Saturday afternoons were the highlight of the week. You could get afternoon tea consisting of dainty sandwiches and home made cakes. In fact, as much as you could eat for 2s 6d. The catering was also carried out on a weekly rota. We had a great deal of fun in that old hut. The man behind the bar would call out "Time Gentlemen, please" and it really meant that we all needed another pint. It just shows how the times have changed; nothing free and easy anymore.

A new Storm Shelter has been erected adjacent to the Ladies tees on the 4th hole. The shelter has been kindly donated by Mr James Salter-Boyden in memory of his Grandfather, Roger Chambers, a former member of the Club and in whose name "Roger's Do" is dedicated.
The shelter was generously constructed and erected by Stan Dunn, who has created a strong, long-lasting building that will benefit all members over many years. A plaque will be fixed to the shelter with the words "This¬†shelter¬†is¬†dedicated¬†to the memory of Roger Pridmore Chambers in gratitude for the sport and¬†friendships¬†he found on this course."
