Surrey County Card Meeting
West Hill Golf Club
Thursday 12th April 2019
On a chilly but beautiful sunny morning a hot coffee and bacon roll awaited the 63 players at the idyllic West Hill Golf Club for the first of the Surrey County Card events for 2019. Once booked in at the reception desk manned by the ever-present Brian Cox the players started to make their way to the 1st & 10th tees to get their rounds underway.
As the morning past the sun shone and the temperature improved added to that the lovely picturesque views down the fairways made for a fantastic day out on the course. West Hill was in great condition and the players certainly enjoyed themselves, even those who found it tough going on this somewhat tricky course.
The speed of play by all the players was excellent, with everyone finishing in very good time.
After a superb three course meal County Secretary Steve McNeill presented the prizes. First were the two nearest the pin winners Keith Lelliott (Effingham) on the 7th followed by Sean Larkin of Betchworth Park on the 13th.
In third place with a Stableford score of 34pts was Adam Smith of The Addington who just pipped Richard Thomas from Effingham on count back, unlucky Richard but I’m sure you’ll be back! Second place was taken by West Hill member Peter Yearsley with 35pts. And the winner of this year’s event and Trophy winner was Sam Wood of Sutton Green with a fine 38pts total, congratulations to Sam.
We also had a winner of the loudest golfing tie, but no prize was given, and the wearer will remain nameless, although it says all that is required about this gentleman’s golfing skills! A good fun day was had by all.
My thanks to West Hill Golf Club for hosting us and making everyone feel so welcome, the course and the food were excellent as were the staff. And of course, to the people who helped with this event, Brian Cox (reception), Ian Mitchell (starter & referee), plus Sue Henderson and Jane Duhart from the Surrey office who do all the administration.
Our next two meetings are Hindhead on Thursday 23rd May and Burhill (Old course) 10th June, the entry forms and full details of these and the other events are Surrey web site.
