Match v Liberal Circle – Gerrards Cross Golf Club – 19th July 2019
This additional event was added in 2017 with a match arranged by the CILT Golf Society at Dunstable Downs Golf Club against the National Liberal Golf Circle. The winning team is based on the total number of stableford points amassed from all 4 matches. Each team plays the full 18 holes of the course. The CILT narrowly won the first event but lost the rematch at Muswell Hill. We can expect another close match to secure the bragging rights this year.
It will be for a team of 8, played over 18 holes as a 4BBB stableford match and be followed with a dinner in the Clubhouse (Jacket & tie required) All CILT Golf Society members are eligible to bid for a place in the team.
This year the match will be arranged by The CILT and is being played at Gerrards Cross Golf Club, home club of Derek Messenger.
Great fun and provides another excellent opportunity for networking with members of both societies
Gerrards Cross golf course is set in parkland with extensive woodland areas. Beech and oak trees, characteristic in this area of Buckinghamshire, feature on many holes and as you can imagine the course is particularly attractive in Spring and Autumn.
The Course measures 6,243 yards from the white tees with one par 5 and four par 3s. With a par of 69 the course provides a good test of golf, confirmed by a SSS of 71 (after a re-assessment early in 2012). Accuracy is the key!
