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. Luckily I find that Pine Ridge GC ( my club ) is in a position to take us plus I can get the Green Room for eating and for our AGM. → More...
CAPTAIN VERSUS PRESIDENT 2020
(COULD PETER “TRUMP” TERRY AGAIN?)
…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...
The Gods were good to us on Wednesday 7 Oct.
After 100 mm of rain on Camberley Heath in 4 days we had a bright sunny if cool and breezy day.
The course was in great condition apart from a few worm casts and had benefitted from the rain.
17 BGS members took part under our new Covid 19 rules and at least we didn’t need masks to play golf.
3 players elected to use the Black tee measured course and lost 6 off their handicaps compared to yellow tees. → More...
Winner was Mark Kenyon, on count back from Steve Fayers. Both had 37.
The IBM Silver Jubilee cup (first played for in 1973) result was the closest in living memory, possibly ever (ending very nearly in a 3 way tie).
Surrey and Sussex won by just one point, making it an unprecedented four wins in a row – gauntlet thrown down for next year!
I want to thank the three players who stepped in to make it an 8 a side match, Dugie McNellis, Gordon Whickman and John Devlin. They all played very well averaging just over 68 between them. → More...
