County Card Meeting at Hankley Common Golf Club
For the Autumn Cup
Tuesday 1st October 2019
Given the forecast and the conditions earlier in the week there was some concern whether the meeting would go ahead, but apart from some rain earlier in the day it stayed relatively dry for the remainder of the day.
The 60 players were greeted to coffee and bacon rolls on arrival and with the tee times set for 09:00 started making their way out to the first and tenth tees.
Despite the weather earlier in the week the course was in great condition, so our thanks to the greens staff at the Club. The speed of play by all the players was good as it normally is at these events.
After a most enjoyable meal, myself, along with Peter Alliss, Patron of Surrey Golf, presented the Autumn Trophy to the winner David Solman from Cuddington, who recorded an excellent 41pts. The competition for the remaining three places was incredibly tight with all three players finishing on 38pts and positions being decided on count back. Clinching 2nd place Simon Armstrong (Mitcham GC), 3rd place went to Ian Morris (Foxhills GC) and taking 4th spot, Tony Mitchell (Addington Palace).
Nearest the pin on the 2nd hole was won by Rob Findlay of Woodcote Park and on the 16th Tom Pinchbeck from West Byfleet.
Our thanks to Hankley Common Golf Club for hosting us and making everyone feel so very welcome.
The next meeting to take place on the 9th October is also at Hankley Common, for the Four Ball Better Ball Bowl, then on Thursday the 7th November at St George’s Hill. There are still a few spaces available at both events so please contact the office if you are interested in playing.
