The summer meeting took place at Royal Ashdown Forest GC on 2nd August.
We were pleased to welcome two new members Will Collard and Jack Carson who have both left the school very recently and are also keen cricketers.
The morning round was played on the Old Course for the President’s Cup and was won by Match Manager Patrick McGahan on countback with 38 points. Will Collard and Dan Burstow also scored 38 points.
A good lunch was followed by 11 holes of foursomes on the West Course for the Stratford Tazzas. These were won by our new members Will Collard & Jack Carson with 21 points. Both can hit the ball prodigious distances and have pretty tidy short games. Let us hope that this is the start of a long lasting membership of the Society.
Unfortunately, the attendance at this event was very low and we need to assess the reasons for this. Is it the cost of the day or the toughness/topography of the course? We need to consider a possible change of venue to get the numbers up. If you have any thoughts on this matter please let me know.
Many thanks to Patrick for taking on the job of Match Manager at short notice.
Graham Negus Hon Sec.
