Golf Schedule 2018

As the Farmers Club Golf Society goes from strength to strength, the programme of fixtures for 2018 is announced. New members are most welcome.

Martin Shaw reports that the Farmers Club 2017 golf season has concluded.

After the summer break we met at Badgemore Park, Henley on Thames, the match was originally versus the Worshipful Company of Farmers, but with the sad passing of John Alliston, who was a member of both societies, a mutual decision was made to play a Stableford competition for the John Alliston Trophy. It is hoped to make this an annual event.

 

Our Autumn Mixed Meeting hosted by retiring Captain Mike Broomby was held at Sevenoaks in Kent. Thirty or so members enjoyed two lovely days of golf on contrasting courses at Knole Park and Wildernesse Golf clubs. An enjoyable dinner was held at Knole Park on the Thursday evening when David Reading was introduced as our Captain for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The team competition was won by Len Brookes, Kechil Gilchrist and John Gittins at Knole and John Pigott, Fay Dilliway Parry and John Gittins at Wildernesse.

 

Traditionally the Club enter a four man team in the Annual Bath Club Cup held at Woking Golf Club, sadly, we didn’t feature on the leaderboard but it's a wonderful day well hosted and competed for by 20 different London Clubs. Woking is a really delightful course.

 

The final match was our 2 day return fixture against the HCEG from Muirfield. The Scots seem quite invincible but there is real camaraderie between the two sides who enjoyed Alwoodley and Seaton Carew and the hospitality arranged by Sue and Norman Bagley.

 

My thanks go to Mike Broomby for his dedication to his role as Captain of the Society.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2018 and hope that you are able to participate in our fixtures around the country.
