As warned, our Summer Meeting will now be held on Thursday 5 July 2018 with a return to Copt Heath Golf Club near Solihull, and with happy memories of the excellent day we had last year. This attractive course designed by Harry Varden and Harry Colt is rated in the Top 100 and home of the Peter McEvoy Trophy.
The programme has been adjusted to ease travel arrangements and is as follows:
0845 onwards Optional 9 hole Stableford (play in 3s)(£10 extra);
1000 – 1100 Coffee and bacon rolls in the Clubhouse;
1100 onwards 18 Hole Individual Stableford (full handicap) from 1st Yellow tee.
1700 approx Prize Giving and three course dinner.
We have sponsorship support for dinner from Britannia Bureau (thanks to Mark Taylor) and for wine by Artko Ltd (thanks to Michael Pestereff). With further backing from Golf Society funds we have reduced the cost of this £95 package to £55 for eligible members; non-entitled members and guests are welcome at a rate of £70 each. (See Annex C for an explanation regarding ‘eligibility’.) Those playing the optional 9 hole Stableford at 0930 must pay an extra £10.
