County Card Burhill Meeting (Old Course)
Monday June 10
for the Vincent Trophy
On a very wet Monday morning
an unwavering group of men played in, what will be the first of many County
Card meetings at Burhill. The men were playing for the new and very imposing ‘Vincent
Trophy’ presented to Surrey by Roger Vincent a past Surrey President and member
of Burhill Golf Club.
Despite the deluge of rain Burhill was in great condition and despite the conditions the scores that came in were very impressive. The players certainly enjoyed themselves, even those who found it tough.
The speed of play by all the players was excellent, with everyone finishing in good time. After an excellent buffet lunch Roger Vincent presented the prizes. The two nearest the pins were won by Ricky Kempton from Surrey Downs GC on the 16th and Sean Larkin from Surrey Downs on the 6th.
In second place with 37 points on countback from Sam Wood of Sutton Green was Philip Rose of SiIvermere and the winner with 38 points was Adrian Koertzen also from Silvermere.
Thanks, must go to Burhill 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) plus Sue Henderson and Jane Duhart from the Surrey office who do all the administration.
I must also extend our thanks to Kevin Jones of TGWine who very kindly hosted a wine tasting session with the aptly named bottles 19th hole, Birdie, Eagle and Albatros, which went down rather well with the players. The award winning Rioja wines are from “Marques de Teran” and “GolfWine”, details of all the wines can be found on the following website link:
Expect to see Kevin at more of our Surrey Events.
The next meeting will be at West Byfleet on Tuesday 25th June, the entry forms and full details of this and other Surrey events can be found on the ‘events’ page on our website.
