Tuesday 21st July 2015

This was a 4 ball better ball competition played over 18 holes.

OHJGS players’ names first

  1. George Atkins and Rick Holgate lost to Roger Palin and Alan Maher     Lost 3/2
  2. Nick Budge and Derek Pitt lost to Ben Richards and Nick Conroy          Lost 1 down
  3. Dudley Stratford and John Fraser halved with Ben Richards and Gary Hall   ½
  4. John Waterfall and Derick Fulcher beat Rob Southwell and John Dalton  Won 2/1

Result:   Lost 2½ : 1½

This was our annual encounter against Canford at Stoneham, and we were pleased to have the company of George Atkins, the immediate past Captain of Golf at Hurst.

This year there were 3 youngsters playing (2 Canford and 1 Hurst) and it is good to see that this age group is enjoying the event as much as the older players do.

Over the last 6 years the honours are now evenly spread, but it is Hurst’s turn to win it next year!

Derek Pitt had a magnificent Hole in 1 at the tricky par 3 8th, but even this was not enough to win his match.

Roll on 19th July 2016 when we can do battle again with the Old Canfordians.
