March/April 2021 report

 April was generally bright but cold, and so it was for the society’s first open meeting of the new season. The venue was West Hill, one of the renowned Three Ws in the Woking area (the others being Woking GC and Worplesdon GC), and a former haunt of Surrey cricket’s spin twins, the Bedser brothers, […]

Jan/Feb 2021 Report

After a year of politicians and scientists using analogies about our being in a Covid tunnel (to which they seem intent on adding their own extension), it is refreshing to be able to talk about plans for outdoor exercise and enjoyment, otherwise known as golf, which surely will be allowed to start before long. Who […]

Nov/Dec 2020 Report

Our last outing of the season, as it turned out, was at Royal Ashdown on a very pleasant September day. 26 members and guests turned up to play for the Autumn Cup, on Ashdown’s West course, which measures a meagre 5,559 yards off the white tees and has no sand bunkers, but provides a true […]

Sept/Oct 2020 Report

The society finally got started in mid-July at the President’s Meeting.

The different methods that golf clubs have adopted to prevent the […]

May/June 2020 Report

For the moment, we are in lockdown and the authorities hit the ‘pause button’ just when the golf season was about to begin in earnest. In particular, one of the casualties has been the Halford Hewitt, the 64-school event which has the highest profile […]

March/April 2020 Report

With some trepidation, given current weather patterns, over twenty society golfers will set off for Deal on the Kent coast to contest the 2020 Scratch Cup on March 1st. In part at least, this serves as a trial for the Halford Hewitt team, and so it is limited to the best, and no doubt hardiest, […]

Jan/Feb 2020 Report

Readers will appreciate that this is the close season for the golf society, but planning is well underway for 2020. As reported in the last edition, 16th June 2020 marks exactly 100 years since the society’s first meeting after WW1, and we will be holding a centenary meeting to celebrate. Largely for logistical reasons, we […]
