OW Golf Society Report – December 2017

In the last playing action of the 2017 season, Paul Harrup overcame last year’s winner, David Hughes, in the final of the annual knockout competition. Paul’s name is therefore added to the honours board for the year, which otherwise reads as follows –

Captain’s Cup Langley Park  Robert Hollidge
Hornsey Walker Cup Wildernesse John Butler
Veterans’ Cup Wildernesse  John Gould
President’s Putter Piltdown Mike Berners Price
Autumn Cup Walton Heath Tony Harris

This is the time of year when we start looking forward to next season. For those readers who wish to fill in their 2018 diaries, our open meetings are scheduled as below –

April 19th Captain’s Day meeting Kingswood
May 23rd Hornsey Walker Cup meeting Banstead Downs
May 23rd Veterans’ Cup meeting Banstead Downs
July 18th President’s meeting The Addington
August 31st Autumn Cup meeting Betchworth Park

The above are played off full handicap. However, the lower handicappers in particular might also want to add in a new entry in our calendar, a meeting at Royal Cinque Ports GC in Deal which is planned for 25th February. This is open to anyone but is to be played off scratch, and will be a chance for captain Nic Gates to assess candidates for his team at the 2018 Halford Hewitt in April.

The AGM and annual dinner is scheduled for 13th March 2018. This is a great chance for potential new members to learn about the society and enjoy dinner with friends in the Old Library.

Anyone wishing to play with and/or join the society should contact the secretary at mailto:peterbgale@sky.com.

Peter Gale (Hon Sec)
