Golf at last! Match drawn v Liberal Circle

By |2020-07-25T16:29:31+01:00July 25th, 2020|Uncategorized|

While fully recognising the hardship and suffering experienced by many during the current pandemic, it was a joy to finally get the CILT Golf Society’s season underway with a match against the National Liberal Golf Circle at West Essex GC on Wednesday 22nd July. This fixture has reached its fourth year and the CILT GS was looking to even up the win/loss statistics. The match was hosted by this year’s Liberal GC Captain, Phil Reeves, at his home club and restricted to 6-a-side (instead of the usual 8) [...]

By |2020-07-20T16:58:33+01:00July 7th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Copt Heath event succumbs to Covid 19 – new date Thursday 21st June 2021

By |2020-05-22T10:10:36+01:00May 22nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

Like other clubs in England, the course is now open for 2-ball golf but, with no clubhouse facilities or catering, is unable to offer the normal service for visiting societies. The committee has taken the view that we cannot expect our members to travel some distance to participate on that basis and the chance of restrictions being eased in order to offer more by that date look highly unlikely. We had explored other dates this year with Copt Heath Golf Club and they have kindly offered us, Postponement until later this season, until 2021, or cancellation.  [...]

Hankley Common moved to Wednesday 19th August 2020

By |2020-04-13T10:14:05+01:00April 1st, 2020|Uncategorized|

"The ever lengthening forecasts of ‘COVID -19 doom and gloom’ prompted us to check with Hankley Common regarding our original booking for the Spring Meeting on 12 May.  While no decisions had been made the forecast was understandably not looking good. We have therefore discussed the matter with our sponsor, John Maguire who has agreed that we should rebook for Wednesday 19th August 2020 which we have now done. The 'Spring' Meeting will now be held on Wednesday 19th August 2020. Please keep your fingers and toes crossed!  If things do not improve [...]

Members Meeting – Cancelled.

By |2020-04-01T10:45:18+01:00March 20th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Sadly, it will come as no surprise to you to be told that we have decided to cancel the forthcoming Member’s Meeting and AGM scheduled for 15 Apr.  Like many clubs, BGC has offered the golf course but little else. As a Golf Society we cannot expect members to travel some distance just for a round of golf and a brief chat outside (weather permitting).  We thought about a postponement but our programme is quite full so I’ve cancelled the meeting and carried over the deposit and booking to Tuesday 13 Apr 2021.  Those who’ve sent [...]

Mike Willis

By |2018-08-27T13:25:34+01:00August 27th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Dear Members,It is with great sadness that I pass on the news that Mike Willis died on 20 August 2018. He’d been ill for some time and put up a brave fight. Mike will be remembered by many as a regular supporter at our events, particularly our Golf Tours. Typical of Mike are the attached photos from Hardelot which also featured another great character, Hugh Heap, before he emigrated to Australia and died a few years ago.I said to Mike’s son James that I’m sure Mike would not have wanted his funeral to clash with our [...]
