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,  [...]

Welcome to a new season

By |2021-02-12T18:00:16+00:00February 12th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Welcome to the 2021 golfing season! As at the time of writing, much of the UK is under a covering of snow and Covid-19 lockdown is still in force. However, with the days getting longer and warmer and anti-virus measures (seemingly) starting to take effect, we can start to make plans for a year that will probably be a bit different from 'normal' but hopefully better than 2020. The season has now been officially launched by a missive from our Chairman, Paul W Symes CBE (Members Mtg21c ). In this document you can find further details about our first [...]

Looking back to 2014 – The Belgium Golf Tour

By |2021-01-13T18:16:46+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Having spent the previous 4 years touring Scotland and Jersey we decided to go back across the English Channel to Belgium for the 2014 Tour. We had been put off travelling overseas by a crippling exchange rate that saw us purchasing bottles of Peroni lager for £9 and Gin & T’s for about twice that figure. But the exchange rate was beginning to move back in our favour and golf clubs and hotels were keen to get The British back playing golf again. Instead of going back to France we thought we would explore new horizons and see what [...]

Tour to Yorkshire – Sunday 5th to Tuesday 7th September 2021

By |2021-01-18T13:06:06+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

By September this year I think we are all expecting that the wider world will have returned to some sort of normality and we have based our plans this year with that expectation. On the first day, we will play Moortown Golf Club, Leeds; home of the 1929 Ryder Cup. We then travel across the A64 to the York Hilton; our home in the centre of York, for the next two nights. On Day 2, we head north to tackle Kirkbymoorside; the home course of Gus Whyte. Ganton has seen a number of improvements since we were last there, [...]

Chairman’s Review of the Year 2020

By |2021-01-19T11:27:36+00:00January 13th, 2021|Uncategorized|

Compared to many others, I think we did well to be able to hold some events during a year dominated by coronavirus.  The number of attendees demonstrated an eagerness to get back to playing golf and to meeting our GS chums!  We also gained some new members, including some who’d been regular guests, so we extend a warm welcome to them all.  The few names who dominate the list of winners disguises the fact that many others turned in good scores in testing conditions. Future Plans.  At a Committee Meeting in November, we discussed all aspects and will [...]

Autumn Meeting and Season Round-Up

By |2020-10-22T12:37:02+01:00October 22nd, 2020|Uncategorized|

To complete a strange and truncated year the CILT Golf Society held its season-ending Autumn Meeting on 14th October at the excellent Northamptonshire County Golf Club. The weather was very kind to us and 27 members and guests turned out to tackle the challenges presented by this gem of a Harry S Colt course. As usual, some found the going more difficult than others on a course that favoured long, straight tee shots and good skills on and around the greens. Members and guests were served a terrific three-course meal as they came in after their round, followed by [...]
