Results – Pine Ridge

After months of COVID, weeks of lockdown and cancellations of our planned golf events HMG eventually announce dates where we can meet and eat indoors in a social context. Great !! Now the problem is that many clubs are not accepting Golf Societies.

With the uncertainty over lockdown ending and golf clubs reopening we decided not to try to play Dummer in December.  It looks like Basingstoke GC will be owning the Dummer course in 2021 and so we may never play Dummer again. → More...

Royal Winchester Results


…Or is the President “Biden” his time? At least we would get a result by the end of play on November 4th as two teams of IBM BGS golfers took to the fairways of Royal Winchester on Lockdown Eve along with most of the Club’s membership. Glorious weather justified the post-October date for the 21st holding of the event with Peter hoping to repeat his team’s triumph last year and use his extra year as Captain to become the first to win the trophy twice. → More...
