Jubilee Cup @ Guildford GC – New Event Announcement


Dear BGS members, 

I trust you are all well and improving your golf for this event. We will need to find a team of 8 intrepid BGS golfers to take on our rivals of Surrey & Sussex, Hursley and North Harbour in the annual 4-way golf match.

After last years very close match coming tied 2nd and all 4 teams only 3 points apart we can try and win this year. We will be organising next year anyway as it is no longer the winning team but now a rotation. 

We are looking for willing volunteers to offer to play in our team at Guildford Golf Club on Monday 20th September. This is only 4 days after our own match at East Berks. If you are available and would like to join the team then please email phil.billin@btconnect.com with your current handicap index. I will select our team from these nominations. If anyone is also prepared to organise next years event please say so, this will put you high up the selection list.

They are currently saying a maximum handicap of 28 but under the new system, we will see if this can be changed, so nominate yourself what ever your handicap. – please offer to play. 

Note – BGS will subsidise the costs by £10 a head bringing the cost down to £42 each.  No money needed yet – if selected then expect to pay quickly as we are running out of time. Please consider offering to join the team. It would be nice to stop S&S winning 5 years in a row and as I have said we are organising next year anyway.

Best wishes
Phil Billin

Cut off for numbers is 7 days before the event13th September.   So please Register in good time – don’t leave it to the last minute – thanks.
