Golf Society Chairman, Paul Symes, then summarised the 2021 season. Once again the early season Members Meeting in March was a casualty of the pandemic. Thereafter the season progressed as scheduled with: a Spring Meeting at the superb Hankley Common GC in May; the Summer Meeting at Copt Heath GC in June; a drawn match against the Liberal Club Golf Circle in July; the triangular match against the Royal Logistics Corps and Transport golf societies in August; and our tour to Yorkshire, followed by yet another drawn match against the Oil Industry GS, both in September.
Attention then turned to our season-long competitions. Cameron Grant faced Paul Butterworth in the final of the Knock-Out competition which Cameron won 3&2. Awarded to the member with the best aggregate Stableford score over 3 competitions, the battle for the John Swanson-Smith Trophy saw a late twist, with in-form Paul Ritchie edging out previous front runners Cameron Grant, John Winter and Bob Harper.
Thanks were given to the meeting organisers, Brian Childs and Paul Symes and also to Artko, through Michael Pestereff, for their sponsorship of the event.
The meeting concluded with a handover from 2020 and 2021 Captain, Bob Harper to his successor for 2022, Brian Reid.
