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 –
|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|
If you wish to participate in our events, and/or join the society, you should contact the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
