Captain’s Day 2019

Liphook Golf Club, Friday 15th March

 

A healthy contingent of 18 players ventured down the A3 to the Surrey/Hampshire border to play our inaugural Meeting of 2019, at the beautiful setting of Liphook Golf Club.

 

Unlike 2018, we were lucky with the weather; cool temperature with a light breeze. The course was in excellent condition, for the time of year. There is an abundance of heather which is currently dormant. Once in flower, this must transform the course into a sea of spectacular colour.

 

Lunch was a delicious steak and mushroom pie, with all the trimmings, followed by treacle tart and/or chocolate brownie with ice cream; the perfect antidote for tired and hungry stalwarts.

 

The winners of the Sparrow Pairs Challenge Cup with a combined score of 67 points, were Alan Ramsay and James Barden. The best individual score was won on count back, by Patrick King.

 

Bizarrely, ‘Nearest the Pin’ on the par 3, 7th hole and ‘Nearest the Pin in 2’ on the short par 4, 14th hole went to the same hackers as last year, namely Charles Crawford and Bruce Gear.

 

Our next event is the Spring Meeting at Princes on Thursday 25th April.
