Results from The Oxfordshire Golf Club

Results for The Oxfordshire Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Captains Day Farnham golf society event at the Oxfordshire golf club on Friday 21st September. Blustery 2 to 3 club winds made for tricky playing conditions on a very open course.
Congratulations to Paul Tucker who won with an on handicap 36 points with Nick Kirsopp coming in second on 35 points. You can see the mughot here. Longest drive went to Ian Grout and Chris Hiscock won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Chris Hiscock with a stormy 21 points.
The detailed results and financials can be seen in the members area.

Overall player of the year
140 Points Sam Thompson
134 Points Ian Grout

3’s Competition
19 Gareth Sweet
17 Chris Ungaretti

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,
Gareth

Saturday 30th September. Meet at 9:30am for coffee and bacon roll. First Tee 10:30am.
Event price is £60 for members and £110 for guests.

[21] Chris Ungaretti

So, here we go again! Last match of the (very enjoyable) season. We’ve played some great courses this year, so thanks as always go to Sam.

So, to business……Runaway, odds on, almost dead cert winner 😉 is Paul ‘The Destroyer’ Tucker on a massive 145 points. Running second (and in with a shout) is Andy ‘Eagle Eyed’ Schofield just 4 points behind (but needing to score 38 points), in third is Gareth ‘Lazy Swing’ Sweet 9 points behind, but only needing a meagre 37 points to tie with the leader. Last of the top 4, (but not least) is Terry ‘The Hammer’ Leader and needing a 39 pointer to get himself in the running. These four will be teeing off last next Saturday.

As for the 3’s competition, Andy is leading the way with 23 (best 4), from Paul on 22, then Chris and Terry both on 19.

Guests are welcome, however, please be advised that the cost is £110. If they book and subsequently fail to play, the full cost will be down to the guests member.
Last day to pull out is this Saturday 23rd.

As an added incentive the golf society will be entering a team for the end of season invitational at West Hill Golf Club. This will be for the 2017 season top 4 finishing players, the event is to be held on Friday 27th October. If any of the top 4 cannot make it, the prize will be offered to fifth place etc. In the event of a tie for 4th place, countback rules will apply on the final round.

Look forward to seeing you all there….don’t forget we’ll also be throwing a few ideas around for next year (nominally called the AGM)
