Climb for Life

By |2020-01-23T16:26:19+00:00January 23rd, 2020|Uncategorized|

Just before Christmas, Immediate Past Captain of the CILT Golf Society, Gus Whyte (Key Account Director at Hoppecke Industrial Batteries Ltd), took part in the 2019 ‘Climb of Life’ to raise money in support of the Institute of Cancer Research. On the day a team of 112 volunteers split into separate groups to take on several well-known Lake District hills including: Wansfell Round; Side Pike and Lingmoor; Place Fell; Bowfell; High Street; Helm Crag to High Raise; Langdale Pikes; Great Gable; Crinkle Crags; and Blencathra with Sharp Edge. ‘Climb of Life’ has been raising monies [...]

Match versus the Oil Industry GS

By |2019-10-31T19:24:18+00:00October 31st, 2019|Uncategorized|

After a month’s postponement due to extreme bad weather, this fixture – the oldest in the Golf Society’s calendar – was played at Denham Golf Club on Thursday 24th October. Although rain was forecast for the day, we were fortunate to start in mild, cloudy conditions on a course that was in fairly good condition for the time of year. Unfortunately the promised wet weather did hit mid-round and resulted in some interesting putts on waterlogged greens and 16 very soggy golfers! The three-course Denham carvery lunch restored dampened spirits but, after a run of [...]

Autumn Meeting at Northamtonshire County GC

By |2019-10-31T19:10:22+00:00October 31st, 2019|Uncategorized|

Our Autumn Meeting at the County Golf Club near Northampton marked the completion of the 25th season for the CILT Golf Society. The Chairman, Paul Symes, passed on many congratulatory messages and we were delighted to welcome back past captains, Tom Brown (down from Scotland and Captain in 2012-13) and Martin Elliott (Captain in 1999-2000). As is always the case, the date did not suit some - including our organiser, Brian Childs - a field of 21 members and guests enjoyed lovely autumn weather and a golf course in pristine condition. Support for our celebratory [...]

Annual Tour – Cornwall Revisited

By |2019-10-06T16:31:12+00:00October 6th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Well we wouldn’t be logisticians if we didn’t move about a bit would we? After a successful visit to Cornwall in 2018, we decided to visit this delightful part of the country again in early September 2019. Using the very well appointed Trevose Golf & Country Club (accommodation suites pictured) as a base, the 26-strong party once again enjoyed a programme that included at least 2 nights B&B, 3 rounds of golf and a lively gala dinner. On Day 1 we stayed close to base and played the Championship course at Trevose in reasonably fine [...]

RLC/TGS Match Result

By |2019-11-18T15:00:22+00:00August 28th, 2019|Uncategorized|

The Golf Society started playing annual matches against the RLC in 1996 (Windelsham, the RAC Club and Hants GC). We were joined by the FTA for a few years then the format v RLC and TGS began in Aldershot /Deepcut in 2013. This year’s match was held with the threat of serious inclement weather. A team of 8 members of the CILT Golf Society played a Stableford match competing in each match with 1 TGS and 1 RLC opponent. The CILT team was supported well by a mixture of experienced members plus some new [...]

Match versus the Liberal Club Golf Circle

By |2019-07-22T10:47:26+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Uncategorized|

The unfortunately wet weather conditions didn't dampen the enthusiasm of 16 intrepid golfers who competed in this annual fixture for the 3rd time. Many thanks to Gerrards Cross Golf Club for hosting the event despite the rain and for providing such great hospitality - especially the post-round three course supper when the clubhouse was otherwise deserted! With regard to the match result CILT Chairman, Paul Symes, was quick to point out that 10 of the 16 players were members of the CILT Golf Society and that 1 of our members was 'loaned' to the opposition [...]

Splendid Summer Meeting

By |2019-07-22T10:10:36+00:00July 22nd, 2019|Uncategorized|

Not for the first time, the true but tricky greens at Copt Heath GC proved to be the undoing of many of the 19 members and 2 guests who enjoyed an otherwise terrific day at this first class venue. As confirmation of their belief in the value of networking with fellow logisticians, events sponsors Britannia Bureau and Artko were represented by Mark Taylor and Michael Pestereff respectively. Unfortunately neither of them featured at the prize giving which followed an excellent meal. Returning member Richard Herbage picked up the prize for getting nearest to the 18th [...]

Summer Meeting at Copt Heath GC, Solihull

By |2019-06-04T13:09:12+00:00June 4th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Due to an unfortunate clash with a rescheduled significant industry event, please note that our Summer Meeting will now be held on Monday 1st July 2019 and not Thursday 27th June as previously advised. Once again, and with grateful thanks for their ability to accommodate the change of date, we return to Copt Heath Golf Club, centrally located near Solihull, and with happy memories of the excellent day we had last year. This attractive course designed by Harry Varden and Harry Colt is rated in the Top 100 and home of the Peter McEvoy Trophy. [...]

Another great day at Hankley Common GC

By |2019-05-29T16:45:55+00:00May 29th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Hankley Common GC served up another superb CILT Golf Society event with their usual clubhouse hospitality being every bit as warm as the glorious weather we enjoyed on this beautifully presented course. This year, in addition to the wonderful social camaraderie and business networking, there was also a very special presentation to our long-standing Golf Forum Chairman from the Society members as he celebrated his milestone birthday with our help. It was evident that our guests did not require much persuasion to join the party at this quality venue. [...]
