Section members and their guests and friends have two golfing weekends a year, one in the Spring and another in the Autumn. Normally they are about a two-hour drive from Paris, with accommodations arranged in the nearest available hotel, often on the course itself. For Friday arrivals there's usually time for a friendly round (and course reconnaissance)  before dinner and Saturday's competitions - the net Stableford Kiwi Cup (presented by Judy and Alan Kerr in about 1985), and the Dean Scratch Trophy presented by Andrew Dean. On Sunday there usually a friendly scramble, or on can participate in the local Club's Sunday competition.) the next one will be (we hope) Roncemay towards the end of September.
