RLC/TGS Match Result

By |2019-08-28T18:33:41+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. [...]

Season-opening Members Meeting

By |2019-04-04T20:13:58+00:00April 4th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Despite the flowering trees and an iconic clubhouse, it is obvious from the wet weather gear that our first ‘major’ event of 2019 was not held in Augusta! 17 members and 3 guests attended the season opening Members Meeting at Beaconsfield Golf Club on 2nd April 2019. It was especially good to see some new faces who, we hope, will be able to join us at future events. For the time of year, the golf course was in excellent condition – especially the true-running greens. Compensation for the chilly, damp weather came in the form [...]

The 2019 Season Starts Here

By |2019-02-08T20:58:19+00:00February 6th, 2019|Uncategorized|

The CILT Golf Society enters its 24th (yes, twenty fourth!) season with the Members' Meeting at Beaconsfield Golf Club on Tuesday 2nd April 2019. Our first outing at this venue last year was hampered by the weather but we’re optimists! If you are a current or past member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport AND a golfer, we urge you to join us at this HS Colt designed parkland course set in well-wooded land with its traditional style clubhouse. It is an attractive and popular venue and we look [...]

Brian Allen – Sorely Missed

By |2019-01-19T10:48:10+00:00January 15th, 2019|Uncategorized|

As we look forward to the golfing year of 2019, we do so in the knowledge that one of our most loved and respected members, Brian Allen, will not be among us. Brian died unexpectedly on 14th September 2018, soon after returning from our tour of Cornwall, when he had been his usual chirpy and amiable self - as evidenced by the photographs below, taken at Trevose Golf Club. Brian had been a stalwart of the Golf Society for many [...]
