More than 250 people attended the Upminster Golf Club’s 90th anniversary celebration on Saturday, July 7 where club members played golf over a course modified to look something like it was the late 1920s.

Lee Shaw, captain of the golf club said: “We were fed and royally watered by our catering and bar staff which included a Pimms tent, a cocktail bar and to make it the full family experience our youngsters were entertained with crafts, face painting, piggy putting, duck hooking to name just a selection.

“Sunday was a little more sedate with golf in the morning and over 100 sitting down for afternoon tea and background jazz in the afternoon.

“The sun shone on the Golf Club all weekend and I think it’s fair to say UGC came together, long may it continue.”
