Alan Owen

Sadly I have to report that Alan Owen passed away this morning.  He was another of the stalwarts of the club and was part of the seniors from quite early on.  He was taken into hospital in Reading about two weeks ago, but the family managed to get him back to the Rainbow room in West Berkshire Hospital for his last few days.  Stephen (one of his sons, and a former member of NRGC) said he looked through the newspaper at the golf results each week, however poorly he felt.

I will always remember his happy smile as he chugged along in the buggy - not caring if his golf was not the best, but just enjoying being out there.

Our thoughts go out to all his family at this sad time.
Rest in Peace Alan.

Judy Willson (Seniors Captain)


  1. One of the nicest men you could ever wish to meet. Alan will be sadly missed.

  2. RIP Alan. A true gent, always happy and smiling will be sadly missed by us all.

  3. I met Alan at the "OLD WESSEX CLUB" long before Waitrose was a twinkle in the eyes of management. I good man and a sad loss to the club. My thoughts go out to his wife and family at this time.
