The Company's Spring Trophy golf meeting was held again at New Zealand Golf Club on 22nd May 2019. What a picture that venue presents, a beautiful course surrounded by rhododendrons, many of which are in full bloom in May. The sun was shining and the afternoon was surprisingly warm.
The morning singles saw Cliff Knowlden win the Spring Trophy with 35 points, narrowly beating Trevor Bush on countback. Trevor thus won the Keller Cup. Runner up in the singles was Tom Dissen (34) with Charles Burrows 3rd on 32. A good number of guests enjoyed the day, so much so that the Guest winner Phil Swanson (guest of Cliff) had a best of day score of 39 points . Nearest pin prizes were won by Captain Andrew Lee and Danny Mead ( another guest of Cliff).
After a super lunch, we embarked on the afternoon greensomes competition. It may have been something to do with the wine at lunch but temperatures had seemingly gone up several notches and it was very warm! Scoring was hot too with Terry Upham’s guests, Allan Brodie and Wayne Collier scoring a hefty 30 points over the 13 holes and winning the afternoon by 1 point.
The next 2 months will see us entering teams in a number of inter livery events- good luck everyone.
We will return to Swinley Forest on October 3rd and details for that meeting will be circulated around mid July.
