Fortwilliam Golf Club Bridge Section


There are already many members and guests who enjoy the weekly Bridge session in Fortwilliam.  From August through to the end of June, every Tuesday evening, Duplicate Bridge is played in the Shaftesbury Room on the 2nd floor of the Clubhouse. If you don’t feel like climbing the stairs then take the lift. Play starts at 7.30pm. Please be seated by 7.20pm.
This new dedicated section of the Club’s website is where you will find all the information you need about Bridge in Fortwilliam, including the weekly results and any notices relating to Bridge activities.

We are always keen to see new players joining us. If you already have some experience of playing duplicate, then you and your partner may come along on any Tuesday evening. We will be glad to see you.
