Beaconsfield – 13th April 2021 – Cancelled

By |2021-02-27T14:10:10+00:00February 27th, 2021|Uncategorized|

"Further to the Government’s announcement this week, I am writing to update you as to the situation regarding visitors at Beaconsfield. Regrettably, the Club has taken the decision to cancel all Society bookings up until 17th May 2021...Beaconsfield Golf Club" This was probably expected but, obviously, I’m sorry that we will not be able to hold our golf meeting at Beaconsfield on 13 Apr 21. Our programme for the latter half of the year is quite congested so regrettably we will have to miss this meeting but plans are already underway to rebook for 2022. We spoke to Peter Taylor, the [...]

Looking back to 2014 – The Belgium Golf Tour

By |2021-01-13T18:16:46+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Having spent the previous 4 years touring Scotland and Jersey we decided to go back across the English Channel to Belgium for the 2014 Tour. We had been put off travelling overseas by a crippling exchange rate that saw us purchasing bottles of Peroni lager for £9 and Gin & T’s for about twice that figure. But the exchange rate was beginning to move back in our favour and golf clubs and hotels were keen to get The British back playing golf again. Instead of going back to France we thought we would explore new horizons and see what [...]

Tour to Yorkshire – Sunday 5th to Tuesday 7th September 2021

By |2021-01-18T13:06:06+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

By September this year I think we are all expecting that the wider world will have returned to some sort of normality and we have based our plans this year with that expectation. On the first day, we will play Moortown Golf Club, Leeds; home of the 1929 Ryder Cup. We then travel across the A64 to the York Hilton; our home in the centre of York, for the next two nights. On Day 2, we head north to tackle Kirkbymoorside; the home course of Gus Whyte. Ganton has seen a number of improvements since we were last there, [...]

Chairman’s Review of the Year 2020

By |2021-01-19T11:27:36+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Compared to many others, I think we did well to be able to hold some events during a year dominated by coronavirus.  The number of attendees demonstrated an eagerness to get back to playing golf and to meeting our GS chums!  We also gained some new members, including some who’d been regular guests, so we extend a warm welcome to them all.  The few names who dominate the list of winners disguises the fact that many others turned in good scores in testing conditions. Future Plans.  At a Committee Meeting in November, we discussed all aspects and will [...]

Golf at last! Match drawn v Liberal Circle

By |2021-01-13T17:42:04+00:00July 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) to ensure we met [...]
