Spring Meeting 2020

Report on OHJGS Spring Meeting  held at West Sussex GC on Thursday 20th August.

Due to Covid, the Spring Meeting had been postponed to the 20th August from the original date of the 6th May.

Twenty players, of which four were guests, enjoyed a day of glorious sunshine on one of the favourite courses in the Society fixture list.

The Gibbs Cup was won by Jeremy Waud with a total of 39 points off a handicap of 6 with Rick Holgate, 15 handicap, the runner up with 38 points after a countback with Will Collard, 12 handicap. The Presidents Tankard for the best over 60’s score was won by Rick Holgate. The scratch prize was won by George Atkins with a gross 73, playing off a handicap of 3. The guest prize was won by Robert Barnard-Smith with 40 points off a handicap of 15.

This was an 18 hole event only with no afternoon foursomes, due to the heavy member bookings on the day and the change from the May date.

The 2021 Spring Meeting has been booked at West Sussex GC for Wednesday 5th May 2021.

The Society’s thanks go to the West Sussex GC catering staff who worked very hard to serve us in the guest marquee located by the putting green.
