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!

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 [...]
