Results for Sonning Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Captains Day Farnham golf society event at the Sonning golf club on Friday 27th September. Blustery and rainy conditions (although it could’ve been worse) didn’t detract from some reasonable scores.
Congratulations to Spencer Coles who won with a steady 37 points with Paul Wallis narrowly coming in second on countback. Longest drive went to Sam Thompson and Gareth Sweet won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Tobias Hemmings with a shabby 26 points.
The detailed results and financials can be seen in the members area.

AGM
It was agreed that:

We would possibly play less courses, different locations and/or overnight stays;
With no other business raised, we all finished our beers and left the building.

See you all soon,

Congratulations Sam on a storming year of golf.

AGM
It was agreed that:
Subs will go up to £40, of which £4 from each member would go to the 3’s competition as a cash prize (1st and second place) and £6 from each member would go towards an end of season prize fund or curry fund;
Nick would be responsible for booking courses, communication with gold clubs and for the general herding of cats. I have sent Nick all the relevant details/passwords/admin rights to enable him to do this;
New members were discussed and it was agreed that any new members would start with a handicap of 18;
All members agreed that mandatory handicaps were beneficial for non club handicap players and Phil is kindly in charge of the online handicap system. Members paid the £15 charge for this service;
Terry raised the point that he is useless with technology, so I have messaged him this morning with his website username/password again and sent him a link to the WhatsApp FGS group!
6 Courses were voted in for next year (you can see them in the 2019 tab on the Overall Results excel file)

With no other business raised, we all finished our beers and left the building.

See you all soon,
