Winter Warm-up

Captains Message

Firstly my apologies for the late report on our first match which we held at Surrey Downs on Sat 26th March. It was great to see some guests, new and old faces at the match and we were blessed with some good weather let`s hope at least that continues throughout the year.

A fantastic turn out for the first game with 24 players taking part in the annual "winter warm up" Texas scramble we fielded 6 teams of 4 players with the teams playing off handicaps of between 5 and 7. This proved to work out well with the results being very close with only 6 strokes between 1st and last places. The runners up on the day were Jane D`Beer, Allen Collinson, Dave Agate and Sid Stacey who finished on a nett 61 with 1st place honours going to Chris Miller, Gawain Owen, Keith Owen and yours truly with a nett score of 59. Nearest the Pin in two went to Team 6 Steve Finden, Jo Selsby, Pete Selsby and Paul Harling, all receiving a prize for their contributions. Nearest the Pin was won by Tony McClean and he along with all his team received a prize which made Tony very popular.

The course was really nice although the Greens weren`t in great condition I think everybody enjoyed themselves and had a good day. The Farmhouse evening meal was attended by 13 members and guests and I am reminded we had a great time !

Looking forward to seeing as many as possible at our next match "Mayday Madness" on Thursday 5th May, spaces are limited so please get your return e mails into Andy asap.

Many thanks to all those that attended

May Day Madness

Captains Message

Hello to all, well what an enjoyable day it was at Banstead Downs a nice course which was mostly in good condition although the greens were somewhat iffy in places but I think most of us enjoyed it overall and we were blessed again with lovely weather. We had a great turn out on the day considering it was a mid week event and a expensive one at that. We are trying to upgrade the prizes this year with the help of several members who are sponsoring matches and I think yesterday's prizes were received well by those who won them.

We had two nearest the pin prizes and a nearest the pin in two which was won by one of our new member Allen Collinson who also claimed the 1st nearest the pin on hole 6, the other being taken by another new member Terry Boardman on hole 17 with a shot that was so close it proved unbeatable on the day.

The main event which was our first Road to Dorking match was contested by 19 players some of which enjoyed a nice Spring walk but no less than 9 players came in with 30 points or over! So in third place on count back with 36 points was Allen Collinson in second also with 36 points was Dave Agate and with a mighty 38 points and overall winner was our very own vice captain Helen Wickens, well done Helen, shame about the handicap cut !

We now are looking forward to our next match at Singing Hills which is our first sponsored event on Friday 27th May, many thanks to Jane for sponsoring this, limited numbers so get your entry in early when Andy sends the invite out. We also have our Jubilee event on Thursday 2nd June which is a 27 hole day, again this one is limited to 20 players so get in early.

Many thanks to all those that attended

Spring Cup

Captains Message

Well it`s been a busy time just lately in the society with two competitions just six day`s apart. Our third match of the season the Spring Cup which was sponsored by Jane De Beer and the 2nd Road to Dorking event was held at Singing Hills. It was another lovely day and we had a good attendance of 15 players which we played in 5 x 3 ball format, when possible we like to go out in threes but unfortunately not all venues will allow this.

The course was in good condition although one or two greens were a bit rough but everyone seemed to really enjoy the course and we had no less than 4 players who scored an extremely impressive 37 points and two other players over 30 points.

The competition was won by Dave Agate with Bill Ballard second on count back and Geoff Harris, defending his title, also on 37 points but placed 3rd on countback. Due to the event being sponsored by Jane we were able to give out some impressive prizes for not only the usual nearest the Pin etc but also for the top 3 Players.

Commiserations to Chris Miller who was really unfortunate enough to land on a tree stump and after discussion in the Pro shop it was decided that a free drop was not permissible which had he been allowed would have meant winning with 38 points, to add insult to injury he was then placed fourth due to count back, however Chris did win a prize on the day and retained his current handicap so some minor pluses in that sense. Be back soon with Jubilee report

Many thanks to all those that attended

Bertie Lawson Open

Captains Message

The first day of the FGS Tour to Old Thorns in Hampshire saw twenty golfers compete for the Bertie Lawson Open, being the only R2D scoring event of the three games played over the Tour.

The first tee time was a late one at 14:10. The course was a true challenge, even to the handful of players who had played it before, with the recent hot weather setting up the fairways for some considerable run. Tricky doglegs and demanding greens saw only six players score over 30 points, with the average score at 24 points. Despite these challenging undertones, many of the players praised the course layout and were looking forward to contesting it again. Quirky holes (easy 9th, tough 15th, impossible 5th) produced many conversations in the bar afterwards.

As for the Tour itself, congratulations go out to Keith Owen who won with a cumulative 98 points. Nigel Brooke-Harte came second with 93 and Trevor Warner third with 91. Keith has also won the privilege of organising the 2023 Tour and I am sure he is working extremely hard already to bring a package to the Society for you all to consider coming along next year, wherever we may travel to.

I look forward to seeing you at Park Wood on Saturday 16th July. I'm sponsoring the day and I hope that as many of you as possible can make it.

Thanks to everyone on the Tour for taking part and making it a fun week.
Chris

Admiral Ramsay Cup

Captains Message

Another fine day out there and considering the dry weather we`ve had the course was in reasonable condition. 17 players took part and I think most people enjoyed the day which was generously sponsored by Chris Miller which is a huge help to the society, Chris was the member who suggested the sponsorship day`s, fantastic idea which has been embraced by so many.

Well done to all those winners who each received a lovely prize for their efforts.

Other notable scores on the day were, P Roy 34, K Hart 33, H Wickens 31 and P Long also on 31, so some decent scores out there.

As always thanks for your support and see you all very soon.

With kindest regards to you all,
Nick
