Golf Society News – Jan/Feb 2020

Readers will appreciate that this is the close season for the golf society, but planning is well underway for 2020.

As reported in the last edition, 16th June 2020 marks exactly 100 years since the society’s first meeting after WW1, and we will be holding a centenary meeting to celebrate.  Largely for logistical reasons, we have decided now to hold the event at Croham Hurst, which of course has a longstanding relationship with golf at the school; it is where many of us started to play. The golf will be followed by a reception and gala dinner, and proceeds from the day will be in aid of the charity Variety Golf, which runs a programme Golf for Disabled Children. Society members will shortly receive formal invitations to the event but any other OWs, or indeed other OW societies, are invited to get in touch if they are interested in participating in what will be a special day.

The major dates on next year’s society calendar are as follows –

Date Event Location
March 1st Scratch Cup Royal Cinque Ports, Deal
March 9th AGM and annual dinner School
April 2nd-5th Halford Hewitt Cup Royal Cinque Ports, Deal
April 28th Captain’s Day Meeting West Hill
May 21st Hornsey Walker Cup Meeting Cuddington
June 16th Centenary Meeting Croham Hurst
July 22nd President’s Meeting Kingswood
September 11th Autumn Cup Meeting Royal Ashdown Forest
