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!

Shooting your age! Alan Swindley shoots gross 76 at 79!

By |2021-09-22T14:54:34+01:00July 29th, 2021|Uncategorized|

One of the benefits of being ‘tour organiser’ is the opportunity to go out and play the courses before the tour itself to become better acquainted with the venue and its facilities. Kindly invited for a friendly three ball by Kirkbymoorside member Gus Whyte, who is a local representative for the PGA (Pickering Golf Association if you must know) along with Ganton member Alan Swindley, we played the course on a hot July day from the yellow tees. Alan was breathless when he arrived, rushing up the hill from the car park with five minutes to spare. He told [...]

Summer Meeting – Copt Heath GC

By |2021-07-14T13:27:18+01:00July 10th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Despite the ongoing pandemic restrictions, 24 members and 4 guests enjoyed a great day at Copt Heath Golf Club near Solihull on Thursday 24th June. As usual for this (our 6th) visit to the home of Peter McEvoy, the course was in terrific condition and provided an excellent test of golfing ability. After consuming the traditional pre-round fare of coffee/tea and bacon rolls, the assembled golfers headed out to the course - many via the practice area. As it turned out, this was probably a wise move! Whatever the case, those who brought along (or [...]

At the AGM on 11th March 2021, it was agreed that the CILT Golf Society should align itself as closely as possible with the new World Handicapping System (WHS) for the purposes of competition. The following article attempts to explain the WHS and its impact on society members and those who participate in our events. Background Our original rule on Handicaps was deliberately introduced to allow CILT golfers (who are not members of affiliated golf clubs) to participate in our events. GS members (who are members of affiliated clubs) and have scored 36 or more points in one of [...]


Beaconsfield – 13th April 2021 – Cancelled

By |2021-07-04T11:15:00+01:00February 27th, 2021|Uncategorized|

"Further to the Government’s announcement this week, regrettably, the Club has taken the decision to cancel all Society bookings up until 17th May 2021" 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 current holder of the Chairman's Cup who said, "If I look on the bright side,  [...]
