Wednesday 14 October 2020 at Northamptonshire County Golf Club

September 27th, 2020|

Our Autumn Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 14 October 2020 at Northamptonshire County Golf Club, Golf Lane, Church Brampton, NN6 8AZ which is 4m NW of Northampton.  This Harry S Colt course opened in 1910 is a traditional inland golf course with undulating woodland, gorse, heather and fine pine woods.  It is ranked as one of the Top 100 Golf Courses, has been the venue for the prestigious PGA Seniors Pro Championship and is regularly used as a Regional Qualifying Course for the Open Championship.  For further details see  www.countygolfclub.org.uk Ensuring that we comply with Covid-90 restrictions, keep safe and are not responsible for spreading this virus is paramount.  This means complying with local travel and lock-down restrictions, track and trace requirements and not attending if you have any symptoms.  These restrictions may change or tighten up before the meeting but, currently, the meeting is open to all Golf Society members and their guests and the format for this meeting has been modified in order to meet the restriction of “gatherings of 6”.  This means limiting our numbers to a maximum of 30, play [...]

Another Successful Tour

September 22nd, 2020|

Thanks to the sterling efforts of chief organiser John Winter, local residents Gus Whyte and Alan Swindley, Society Captain, Bob Harper and assistant/score-keeper Cameron Grant, plus the accommodating attitude of the Hilton Hotel, the 31 Castlegate restaurant and the 3 golf clubs named below, the CILT Golf Society was able to enjoy yet another splendid autumn tour. This year John proposed a visit to Yorkshire to play Fulford GC, York (Strensall) GC and Ganton GC. In view of the proven quality of all these courses the membership was fully supportive of John’s choice and proved it by turning up in force – 30 people to be precise. Despite having to adhere to the ‘new normal’ Covid-19 restrictions, it was with great anticipation that we turned up at Fulford GC (home of an ash tree by the 17th green from which Bernhard Langer played his shot in the 1981 Benson & Hedges tournament) on Sunday 6th September to learn that it was also Club Championship day. Oh good we thought, the course should be in tip-top condition. And so [...]

Soggy Late Spring Meeting

August 27th, 2020|

Coronavirus restrictions caused the postponement of earlier Golf Society events so this favourite venue and the prospect of reuniting with chums attracted lots of interest. Those facing longer journeys from Yorkshire and Norfolk hesitated when they saw the forecasts of torrential rain but 24 members and guests gathered under tented awnings and umbrellas to take on this challenging course. Inevitable comparisons were drawn with similar wet days at previous Society events at Le Touquet, Wimereux, Royal Troon, Prestwick and even worse at Western Gailes – but that goes with our 26 year history!  Traditionally the weather at Hankley is great and the colourful heather is normally an attractive feature but, in the wet, it became a curse for many of us! Nevertheless everyone completed their rounds, dumped their sodden kit and enjoyed the comradeship, networking and excellent hospitality of this famous Club. Conforming with the Covid-19 restrictions has presented a challenge to all golf clubs but the management and staff at Hankley Common GC could not have been more helpful.  The course drains [...]

Golf at last! Match drawn v Liberal Circle

July 25th, 2020|

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 existing virus control protocols. Suffice to say that those who were lucky enough to attend the event thoroughly enjoyed the experience despite the abnormal circumstances. The course was in good condition considering the lack of rain and the greens were both difficult to read and lightning fast. Weather conditions were ideal for golf: dry with pleasant temperatures and light winds. All participants also appreciated the excellent and plentiful pre- and post-round catering provided by the club. Now to the match report. 2020 CILT GS [...]
