Despite a major calendar clash with several important industry events, 21 members and guests were able to attend the Spring Meeting at Hankley Common Golf Club on 15th May. They were rewarded with not just a wonderful golf course in excellent condition, but also fine, dry weather and great camaraderie.
The meeting was efficiently organised by Brian Allen and was generously sponsored once again by Narrow Aisle (thanks to John Maguire). The Club’s hospitality and service was excellent and the choices offered at the carvery lunch were just too tempting!
Probably due to early season lack of practice, not everyone was able to make the best of the conditions, but a few members and guests were able to tame the course and featured in the prize-giving which followed the meal.
The Spring Meeting Trophy was won by our in-form Society Captain, Cameron Grant, with 35 points, followed by Brian Reid (33) and Adrian Malupa (32). The guest prize went to Eddie Cox (28); the nearest-the-pin prizes to Cameron Grant and Peter Wood, who also won the longest drive.
At the prize-giving afterwards Cameron entertained us and gave a particular welcome a new member, Chris Bramall, and our guests and to our loyal sponsor, John Maguire of Narrow Aisle.
The success of this event was due mainly to the excellent administrative abilities of Brian Allen and the generously loyal sponsorship of Narrow Aisle through John Maguire. The Society is also grateful for the perennial welcome extended by Hankley Common Golf Club. In fact, this year some of the local wildlife came out to greet us
