Spring Meeting 2019 

Princes Golf Club, Thursday 25th April

 

Our return to Princes yielded a staggering field of twenty-eight players, which was a wonderful turn out.

 

Faced with a brisk southerly wind, the morning round presented a stern links challenge around the Himalayas and Shore combination. The Course was in excellent condition for the time of year, with plenty of spring growth on the fairways and true greens.

 

In the morning, Neil Cossey’s guest, Barrie Harding prevailed, amassing a very impressive 38 points. Beau Hart was the highest scoring OL and adds his name to the Hyland Fling trophy.

 

Nearest the pin on the 5th hole went to Neil Cossey and nearest the pin on the 12th hole, went to Bruce Gear.

 

At lunch, it was great to welcome and catch up with Stephen Samuels and we were also graced with the company of the ODs’ President, Graham Turner and his wife, Rosie.

 

In the afternoon, six teams took on the Dunes 9, to play for The Beney Bowls. Honours went to the pairing of Paul Bailey and his guest, Richard Norris.

 

If you haven’t visited Princes since the re-designed Himalayas, I can highly recommend it. There also appear to be changes afoot with some of the holes on the Shore, probably in preparation for the 2020 Open qualifying.

 

Our next event is the Summer Meeting, which will be hosted at North Foreland on Friday 21st June. This fixture is open to guests, so please feel free to invite your friends, as the format for this day is always great fun.

 

To follow is a list of the runners and riders with their scores. Unfortunately,
I was only handed two of the Old Dovorian scores and no cards form Messrs Robinson and Flynn:
