Motor Trades GS Match

By |2022-06-16T11:19:37+01:00May 31st, 2022|Uncategorized|

We added an extra event to our schedule for the season – a match between teams of 8 against the Motor Trades Golf Society.  This first/inaugural match was arranged by Paul Healy of the MT GS at Surbiton Golf Club on Mon 23 May 2022. As this was a late addition to our list of events, many of those who wanted to play had other commitments, with the regrettable result that we could only field a team of 6.  Nevertheless, we all met up for a snack lunch and then played a 4BBB match.  The first pairing of Paul [...]

When it’s Spring again……..

By |2022-05-31T19:07:59+01:00May 31st, 2022|Uncategorized|

As evidenced by the main picture, Hankley Common GC was in its usual superb condition for our annual Spring Meeting. When the Spring Meeting moved to Hankley Common GC from its original home at Denham GC in 2008, we were indebted to Flexi-Narrow Aisle, through member John Maguire, for their sponsorship. The fact that Flexi-Narrow Aisle have continued to support this event over the years is evidence of the benefits such exposure to, and networking with,  senior figures in the logistics industry can bring. This year, relaxation of two years of pandemic-enforced restrictions made [...]

Member’s Meeting – Success at Last!

By |2022-05-02T15:51:34+01:00May 2nd, 2022|Uncategorized|

With high hopes for a successful new season, 22 members – including a welcome newcomer, Garrett Emmerson – arrived at Beaconsfield Golf Club on Tuesday 12th April to kick off our 2022 golfing year. Prior to the golf, and for the first time in 2 years, we were able to hold a proper AGM without having to resort to video conferencing. Mandatory officers were voted into post, reports delivered on the society activities for 2021 and events were confirmed for 2022. There was then much discussion on the society's programme for 2023 and beyond in the light of [...]

Even though you may have already broken some of your New Year’s resolutions, here’s hoping that, like me, you are determined to enjoy your golf in 2022. If so, there is no better way to get started than joining us at Beaconsfield Golf Club on Tuesday 12th April for our season-opening Member’s Meeting, playing for the Chairman’s Cup. Beaconsfield is a beautifully presented, classic Harry Colt designed course with excellent practice facilities – particularly the Luke Donald short game area! The course remains basically the same as when it was originally designed in 1913 by HS "Harry" Colt and [...]

Chairman’s Review of the Year 2021

By |2022-01-05T16:36:07+00:00January 5th, 2022|Uncategorized|

Report for 2021.  Apart from our Members’ Meeting, the easing of Covid restrictions enabled us to enjoy a full season of events and attendance levels improved.  We gained some new members so I extend a warm welcome to them all.  One feature this year was the introduction of the World Handicap System (WHS) which, in time, should provide a ‘playing handicap’ which more accurately reflects a golfer’s playing ability and the difficulty of the course being played.  Click the link for a summary of the results of events in 2021 ChairmanReport21AnnexA. General.  A Committee Meeting in November discussed all [...]

Gus and Liz raise over £2000 for Institute of Cancer Research

By |2021-11-29T11:28:49+00:00November 29th, 2021|Uncategorized|

After a two years absence due to COVID restrictions, Gus Whyte Sales Director at Hoppecke Industrial Batteries (UK) Ltd, once again dug out his kilt and along with 90 others tackled a number of hills in the lake district raising well needed money for the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR). On a wet and windy day (which is very relevant when wearing a kilt) and on the 5th November the climbs took place around the Coniston area in the Like District National Park. The success of the day was recognised with thanks from the ICR where with generous [...]

CILT Golf Society – Autumn Meeting and Season Round-Up

By |2021-11-02T08:47:09+00:00November 2nd, 2021|Uncategorized|

After a comparatively normal golfing year, the CILT Golf Society held its season-ending Autumn Meeting on 13th October at the very welcoming Northamptonshire County Golf Club. Unseasonably mild late-season weather continued to favour us so 21 members and 4 guests tackled this gem of a Harry S Colt course with eager anticipation. With the course rewarded those players who were able to keep the ball out of trouble off the tee and master the true, but tricky, greens, early optimism dissipated sooner for some than others! As has been the case since we first visited Northamptonshire County in 2014, [...]

Over the past few weeks members of our Golf Society have been busy doing battle with various other groups. The results of their endeavours are shown below. Triangular match versus The Royal Logistics Corps GS and Transport GS While the world of logistics is facing many challenges - notably from the global pandemic and the aftermath of Brexit - it is comforting to know that golf can provide a little respite. Our match v the Royal Logistic Corps Golf Society has been played annually since 1996, initially at the RAC Club, [...]

Another Amazing Tour

By |2021-09-22T14:53:41+01:00September 21st, 2021|Uncategorized|

Whatever the location and regardless of the weather, John Winter always organises a thoroughly enjoyable tour! This year’s three day return trip to Yorkshire proved to be no exception. The tour party of 26 members and six guests, met at Moortown Golf Club – venue for the 1929 Ryder Cup - on Sunday 5th September. Having recently hosted the English Amateur Championship, the course was in tip-top, if somewhat tough, condition. Nevertheless, several players stepped up to the task and managed to play to, or better than, their handicaps.  Among performances of note was that [...]

A Close Match!

By |2021-09-23T18:25:04+01:00August 8th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Hoping to improve upon last year’s tied match, the CILT Golf Society took on the National Liberal Club Golf Circle at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club near Harpenden on Thursday 29th July. The Liberal GC included two ladies in their team for the first time. This was a welcome development in an always enjoyable sporting and social event. Unfortunately only 7 of the selected 8 CILT GS team members were able to attend, so Eddie Cox ended up with the tough task of taking on a Liberal GC pair on his own – in a 4-ball, better ball, Stableford competition!
