OHJGS Winter Meeting – Walton Heath – 2nd December 2022

We enjoyed a great day at Walton Heath, a good turnout of 24 players including six guests and injured  Alex Fleet joining us for lunch. The persistent rain from the previous week gave way to dry but foggy days leading up to our event, but thankfully we had a clear but very chilly dry day. It was great to see a strong young contingent with Ed Fairfax encouraging others along, Ben Rigby again and Sam Worlidge for the first time. The New Course was playing very long, even off the visitors Green boxes and accordingly the scoring was surprisingly good. Top honours for the Waud Winter Cup went to Ed Fairfax playing off 18 who came in with 38 points closely followed by our Captain, Alex Taylor with 36, Jeremy Waud 35 and Tom Fairfax 34. The guest prize went to Matt Isepp’s guest, Zach Smith on 38 followed by Honorary Member, Jeremy Williamson on 34 (even though his guest Michael James collected his prize and looked both surprised and delighted!)

Matt Isepp and Christian Wimshurst won the nearest to the pin prizes and the longest drive went to 24 handicapper, Ben Rigby!

Last but no least the Douglas Henderson trophy for the best two scratch rounds from any of our four main events of the year was a very close run affair – with 5 players in close contention. Top honours went to Christian Wimshurst with 29 and 31 scratch points.

An excellent and jocular lunch was enjoyed by all before the hard core retired to Chez Waud for more imbibing late into the evening!
