Another Successful Tour

By |2020-09-22T12:38:45+01:00September 22nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

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 [...]

Soggy Late Spring Meeting

By |2020-08-27T17:38:09+01:00August 27th, 2020|Uncategorized|

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 [...]

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) [...]

2020 Season to Start Soon?

By |2020-06-19T12:53:13+01:00June 18th, 2020|Uncategorized|

2020 has been a very different year for all of us to date. It is to be hoped that the absence of golf has been the least of your worries and our sympathies go to anyone directly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. From a golfing standpoint, the opening of courses, albeit with many virus-control restrictions in place, has been very welcome. However, the fact that golf clubs have so far been unable to supply changing and catering facilities for large groups, means that we have been unable to enjoy any of our CILT Golfing events [...]

Copt Heath event succumbs to Covid 19 – new date Thursday 21st June 2021

By |2020-05-22T10:10:36+01:00May 22nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

Like other clubs in England, the course is now open for 2-ball golf but, with no clubhouse facilities or catering, is unable to offer the normal service for visiting societies. The committee has taken the view that we cannot expect our members to travel some distance to participate on that basis and the chance of restrictions being eased in order to offer more by that date look highly unlikely. We had explored other dates this year with Copt Heath Golf Club and they have kindly offered us, Postponement until later this season, until 2021, or cancellation.  [...]
